Consequently, travellers can now enter the country under standard entry rules – however some domestic coronavirus rules continue to be in effect within the country.
Domestic rules still being enforced include the requirement to wear a face mask when using public transport and taxis, as well as when entering health facilities and nursing homes. The autonomous island territory of Madeira also still has similar mask rules in place.
Portugal is the latest European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA) member state to remove their requirement to present proof of vaccination, testing or recovery, following: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czechia, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, and Switzerland.
The Portuguese government previously reinstated the requirement in April 2022, despite other countries gradually removing their own border rules around the same time.
