According to the Ministry of Internal Administration (MAI), the number of airlines fined for having transported passengers without a negative test or recovery certificate remains at 38, similar to the balance made last week by the MAI.

Airlines that transport passengers without a negative test incur a fine of between 20,000 and 40,000 euros per passenger and travellers are also subject to an administrative offence fine, between 300 and 800 euros, for not presenting a test on arrival.

MAI also indicates that the 1,698 administrative offenses include eight foreigners who were refused entry into the country for not having presented a test on arrival, since only Portuguese citizens, and foreigners residing in the country are allowed to carry out the test at the airport.

MAI data also show that 1,714 diagnostic tests were carried out at airports on passengers who entered the country without this document.
