Border controls have also been re-established at the Spanish frontier

A two-week ban on foreign travel took effect in Portugal yesterday. The few exceptions include international professional activities, medical emergencies, goods transport or to reunite families. Border controls have also been re-established at land routes into Portugal’s only neighbour Spain, at a reduced number of crossing points. Worst-hit countries such as Spain and Ireland must additionally observe a 14-day quarantine from the date of arrival in Portugal. The country has also suspended all flights to Britain and Brazil because of new, more contagious variants originating in the two countries.
