Those looking to travel to Portugal for a summer holiday and the businesses in the country that depend on the tourist trade were given a boost today.

Manuel Lobo Antunes, the Portuguese Ambassador to the UK, was asked by Sky News when the borders will be opened to allow tourists to visit Portugal, to which he replied: “As soon as possible, this is not just a unilateral matter, we have to coordinate this issue with our British friends and the UK government.

"But we are hopeful, as we have been saying for these last months, that from the middle of May, regular mobility between the UK and Portugal and vice versa, can be established, that’s our hope.”

Asked if British tourists who have not been vaccinated will be able to travel to Portugal he said: "Yes, that’s the idea, that’s what we wanted, to as much as possible go back to the regime that existed before the pandemic.

"It’s in that direction we are working and that is possible."

Por favor, sou mãe de quatro filhos (vão à escola todos os dias e não temos número de saúde porque o número de saúde SNS está relacionado com a emissão do cartão de residência em português. Infelizmente, isto não acontece para fechar o espada .. Estou em um estado de constante preocupação por eles e um dos meus filhos tem casos positivos em sala de aula. Não consegui ver como ele e fazer as análises necessárias porque eles não têm o número de SNS para o conhecimento . Os papéis foram aprovados pela espada a partir da data 31/07/2020) Peço desculpas. Sei que este lugar não é adequado para o que digo, mas não sei para onde ir e o que posso fazer para tranquilizar meus filhos nesta epidemia ... e obrigado
