The rules for flights are to remain unchanged for this next phase of the deconfinement plan that starts on Monday, and the land border with Spain will remain closed for the next 15 days, the prime minister announced.

He recalled regarding flights, the rule in force is that passengers coming from countries that have less than 500 cases of covid per 100,000 inhabitants are allowed entry as long as they have a negative test.

Others can enter but be subjected to testing, plus quarantine.

It would be helpful to repeat again the rules and restrictions for EU citizens residing in Portugal traveling outside the EU.
It’s not easy to keep track what were the rules 2 weeks ago.
