RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - On Saturday, September 18, Portugal began to accept vaccination and recovery certificates issued by other countries. The measure allows citizens with vaccination or recovery certificates access to the country "for the purpose of non-essential travel, subject to reciprocity confirmation" until September 30.
In practice, the measure means that the presentation of negative tests upon arrival of tourists at Portuguese airports is no longer mandatory. The waiver of tests does not apply to cultural and gastronomic events in Portugal, where they are compulsory, such as restaurants on weekends or accommodation in hotels.
