Having previously arranged two trips to the Algarve, December to February and then April/May, I eventually contacted the Portuguese Immigration Service (SEF) after being unable to return to the UK in the intervening period.

I was informed due to the current Covid-19 situation, there is an extension of the limit up to 90-day without the need for a visa.
