Portugal is on the UK’s “green” list for unrestricted travel.
The announcement was made by the Portuguese foreign ministry, which said tourism authorities had been ensuring that testing capacity in Portugal will meet the demand from tourists.
“With an air capacity from (at least) 21 airports in the United Kingdom into Portugal, reinforced due to the high demand from this market, the options are wide for the British tourists to visit Portugal from any point,” the ministry said.
“People from the United Kingdom have visited Portugal and celebrated our culture, traditions, landmarks, history, and enjoyed our warm hospitality for decades. We look forward to welcome all travellers coming from the UK.”
Authorities in the UK had already announced that travellers from England and Scotland would not have to quarantine on their return from Portugal and other “green list” countries from 17 May.
However, those countries have their own restrictions on who can visit.
