The Portugal Government, on 7th February 2022, has ended the presentation of a mandatory negative COVID-19 test to enter Portugal.
The country has now announced, “only the presentation of the COVID-19 Digital Certificate of the European Union in its three modalities or other duly recognised proof of vaccination is now required” – according to the office of the Minister of the Presidency.
The Council of Ministers also accepted modifications concerning the COVID-19 digital certificate and adjustments to proof of vaccination, presented to access certain establishments.
The digital certificate requires that rapid antigen tests be performed within the previous 24 hours, instead of the 48-hour deadline, and in the case of a molecular nucleic acid amplification test (TAAN), the deadline is 72 hours.
As regards to vaccination, the COVID-19 digital certificate now attests to the completion of the primary vaccination programme for more than 14 days and less than 270 days since the last dose, or the booster dose.
The rules regarding the recovery certificate remain unchanged.
