LEAFLET INSIDE 1

The Embassy and its Consular Section will be closed on the 24th of May 2021 due to public holiday.

The Consular Section is closed on 25 May 2021 due to a Consular Stay in Vejle.

From 17 May, mainland Portugal is classified as "yellow" and, thus, the whole country is open to tourism. Certain restrictions have been eased, so here is a short review on the situation. It’s important that you are aware of all the details.

Most important of all:

The whole of Portugal is now open, so Danes can freely holiday on the mainland or on the Azores and Madeira (including Porto Santo) islands. As the whole country is "yellow", it also means that one or more of the three mentioned regions can only turn orange again if the infection rate exceeds 150 newly infected per 100,000 per week OR if the "positive percentage" reaches 4 or more. Right now, all regions are far below these limits so the likelihood of a new closure is also limited (although we have learned that guarantees must not be given in what regards this crisis).

Danish travel guides:

Denmark has removed the requirement for testing before boarding a plane with destination to Denmark if you travel from a "yellow" country. However, you still need to be tested upon arrival at an airport in Denmark.

Portuguese rules (which vary from region to region):

Mainland:

A negative PCR test done no more than 72 hours before must be presented when boarding an aircraft to Portugal. Even if you have already been vaccinated or have proof of previous infection, you must present negative test results. Children under the age of 2 are exempt from testing.

Also be aware that the following countries have incidence figures of over 500 and that it is therefore not possible to travel from these countries into Portugal without having to be quarantined: South Africa, Brazil, Cyprus, Croatia, India, Lithuania, the Netherlands and Sweden. Unfortunately, the legal text is unclear, but it has been interpreted in a way that you cannot travel from Denmark to Portugal via Amsterdam, for example, without having to be quarantined in Portugal. We therefore recommend you to choose flights that do not have a stopover in one of the referred countries. This quarantine requirement applies ONLY to the mainland.

Madeira:

Negative COVID test (maximum 72 hours old) must be presented upon arrival. Children up to the age of 11 are exempt from the test requirement.

Madeira's regional government continues to offer to pay for a test before returning home, if you which so, but as it is no longer a requirement from Denmark, we assume that most people will refuse this offer.

Madeira also accepts documentation confirming vaccination (2 doses) or previous infection (within 3 months).

Azores:

Negative COVID test (maximum 72 hours old) must be presented before boarding the aircraft to the Azores. Children up to the age of 12 are exempt from the test requirement.

If the stay extends over 7 nights or more, you must be tested again on the 6th and 12th days after arrival. These tests are free. Should it happen that you are tested positive, the local government pays for hotel stay during the quarantine period - note, however, that the return flight ticket is not paid for by the Azores government. However, some travel insurances cover this expense.

In general:

For the safety of guests, certain rules continue to apply, such as the requirement to wear a mask, a ban on the consumption of alcohol in public spaces (except in restaurants and terraces) and in some places with restrictions on closing times (especially shopping centers) and limited capacity (namely restaurants and other enclosed spaces).

Note that the Clean & Safe scheme, launched a year ago by the Turismo de Portugal, has already been introduced by 21,700 companies in the tourism and restaurant sector, and that more than 23,000 people have completed the required training.

The Clean & Safe scheme was launched to help companies to apply measures against COVID-19 infection, but also other viral or bacterial diseases. At the same time, it aimed to strengthen confidence in Portugal as a tourist country, both among consumers, companies' own employees, foreign partners (eg tour operators and airlines) as well as the general population. The scheme covers the entire tourism sector's chain of value, from private accommodation to large hotels, restaurants, travel and touristic agencies, event industry, spas, car rentals, golf courses, museums, palaces, monuments, libraries, concert halls, theatres, casinos, airports and much more.
