Two other non schengen flights had landed just before us so there were about 400 to 500 people to go through border control and there was only one border guard to process these 400/500 people at first. So it took me 1 hour and ten minutes to get through border control from joining the queue to getting through. What a horrible first impression of the Algarve! Portuguese Border control know the day before when flights are coming in, so why can’t they put an appropriate number of passport checkers at the controls?
