COVID-19: British passengers arriving in Portugal must quarantine for 14 days if not fully vaccinated


British travelers to Portugal who are not fully vaccinated against the coronavirus must self-quarantine for 14 days upon arrival from today.

Anyone traveling on the continent Portugal by air, land or sea, must prove that they have received two doses of a COVID-19[feminine[feminine vaccine at least two weeks ago, or need to isolate.

The new rules, introduced by the Portuguese government, come into force on Monday and will last until at least July 11.

They specify that the quarantine can be “at home or in a place indicated by the health authorities”.

Portugal is currently on the British government’s Orange Travel List, which means passengers must also self-isolate for 10 days upon their return to Britain.

He was removed from the green list, which does not require passengers to self-quarantine, last month amid concerns over an increase in cases.

Germany is also trying to get the European Union to ban all travelers from the UK – whether or not they have had a coronavirus vaccine or not – according to the Times.

Angela Merkel would like the EU to classify the UK as a ‘country of concern’ due to the high rates of the Delta variant which first appeared in India.

The Chancellor wants other member states to follow Germany’s lead by demanding that all British arrivals be isolated for 14 days, whether or not they are trapped.

French President Emmanuel Macron said he would support a mandatory 14-day quarantine for all unvaccinated passengers, the newspaper reports.

Currently, people who are not fully vaccinated are only allowed to travel from the UK to France if they can prove it is essential.

They must prove they have tested negative for the virus and self-isolate for seven days upon arrival.

Those who are fully vaccinated against COVID do not need to be quarantined, but must prove their immunization status.

Merkel’s proposals will be discussed by senior EU officials in the coming days.

Countries like Spain, Greece, Malta, Cyprus and Portugal, which rely heavily on British tourists, are expected to resist calls.

Portugal’s new rules only apply to those who have not had a double bite.

Malta will go greenlisted in the UK at 4 a.m. on June 30, but passengers will be required to remain isolated on arrival under local rules. Another update to the UK government’s travel list is expected early next month.
