Portugal one step closer to the green list?

Portugal is one of several countries which has seen FCO advice change in relation to visiting during Covid, hinting at the possibility that the country could be on the green list expected to be announced by the British government soon.

The Foreign Office is no longer stating that only essential travel is allowed for Portugal (except for the Azores), with similar changes also being made on the advice given for Israel and some Spanish and Greek islands.

It is currently still illegal for British tourists to travel abroad for a holiday but this is widely expected to change on 17 May, when the next stage of the UK road map is to be announced.

The “green list” of countries that Brits are able to travel to for holidays is expected to be published by the end of the week.

What’s the update if any about allowing non essential travel to Portugal for non vaccinated people (from EU and UK?) from May 17?

What the Foreign Office in UK cad decide upon is what happens when they return to UK.

Regulations regarding entering other countries are decided by each country. And not by UK. (Even that seems hard for them to understand)
