Provide proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result
All arrivals from the UK must show one of the following to enter Mainland Portugal:
- Proof of full vaccination: If you’re fully vaccinated at least 14 days before your arrival, you’ll need to provide proof to enter Portugal. An NHS COVID Pass shows your COVID-19 vaccination details and will be accepted. You can find out how to obtain your evidence by visiting the Government website: Demonstrating your COVID-19 vaccination status when travelling abroad
Your NHS appointment card from vaccination centres is not designed to be used as proof of vaccination and cannot be used to demonstrate your vaccine status.
- Proof of a negative COVID-19 test result: If you’re not fully vaccinated, you’ll need to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 (PCR, LAMP or TMA) test taken, at most, 72 hours before your scheduled departure time - or proof of a negative COVID-19 Rapid Antigen (RAT) test taken, at most, 48 hours before your scheduled departure time. Please note, the UK Government has advised that you cannot use the free NHS tests for international travel as the result certificates don’t contain all the required information.
This excludes children aged 11 and under.
