We are flying to Lisbon in August (hopefully!) and planning to head straight to Porto and other towns in the north, then return to Lisbon at the end of our trip for the last few days. Would we be allowed to enter Lisbon on a Sunday to go to our hotel? Or are we required to have a negative PCR test before we can re-enter Lisbon on a weekend? Or is it better to arrive back in Lisbon on a Monday?
I know this could change between now and when we depart...just wondering if anyone has any info.
From the US Embassy in Portugal: A travel restriction prohibiting entry into or out of the Lisbon Metropolitan Area is in effect for weekends (between 3PM on Fridays and 6AM on Mondays). Exceptions to this prohibition include holders of a European Digital Certificate of vaccination; a negative result for a PCR test conducted within 72 hours prior to boarding; a negative result for a rapid antigen test OR persons conducting essential travel for health or work (evidence required).
