Measures Adopted to Reduce Transmission of COVID-19


Algar Seco Parque

Within the scope of the COVID-19 pandemic, Turismo de Portugal created the “Clean & Safe” seal to distinguish companies in the sector that comply with the minimum hygiene and careful cleaning requirements for the prevention and control of this virus or other possible infections, in order to allow tourism enterprises, tourist entertainment companies, and travel agencies to have a tool that certifies them as safe establishments, guaranteeing the tourist’s confidence in the destination.
These measures require the creation of an internal protocol, in conjunction with the recommendations of the Directorate-General for Health, which ensures the necessary hygiene to avoid risks of contagion and ensure safe procedures for the operation of tourist activities.

Update April 2022:


Mandatory waring of masks is eliminated, except:

- in public transports, taxis and similar passenger transports;

- when visiting to care and nursing homes and health facilities.


When arriving to Portugal by plane restrictions are maintained and checked by border control.
