As a publication that supports all business in Portugal and the tourism industry, as well as our UK readers, the UK citizens based in the Algarve, the UK citizens (and citizens of other nationalities) employed in the tourist industry and the UK citizens that love to visit the Algarve each year we want to help to rectify this situation.
As such we have launched this campaign to raise awareness of the unique Portuguese situation and put forward logical reasoning as to why the UK government should change their mind.
We are asking our readers and those that support the changing of the decision of moving Portugal off the green list to send a lobby letter to their local MP.
As well as you our readers supporting the campaign, we at The Portugal News will also be working to highlight the campaign through letters to Boris Johnson and other key members of the British government, contact with the Portuguese authorities and sharing the campaign across our social media platforms with more than 75,000 followers. We will also be publishing regular updates in our printed newspaper which reaches 60,000 people a week and 600,000 unique visitors to our website each month.
The Portugal News is committed to working with the local community and businesses to ensure that Portugal continues to be recognised as the safe destination that it always has been and continues to be.
