The Azores has already issued more than 2,500 “My Safe Azores” vouchers, worth more than €90,000, a measure implemented since October to encourage the conduct of screening Covid-19 tests before travelling to the archipelago.

In place since 21 October by the Regional Government, the voucher “My Safe Azores” is “usable exclusively in the acquisition of goods or services in the region, in activities that are part of the tourist sector”. In total, the initiative includes a global investment of €1.2 million, explained the executive, according to Lusa News Agency.

In practice, the “Destination Insurance Azores Voucher” gives a financial incentive of €35 for conducting screening tests for SARS-CoV-2 before departure to the region.

To take advantage of this incentive, when filling out the Risk Assessment and Early Detection Questionnaire in the My Safe Azores tool, the passenger must select the option “Benefit from the ‘Destino Seguro Açores’ Voucher”, after the validation of the negative test by the Regional Health Authority, the voucher is sent to the e-mail address.
