The Algarve Intermunicipal Community - AMAL and Turismo do Algarve will mark the reestablishment of the crossing point on the border between Andalusia and the Algarve, in a ceremony that will take place on 1 July, at 12:15pm, in the garden of Posto de Tourism of the Guadiana International Bridge.

The Secretary of State for Fisheries and regional coordinator of the fight against Covid-19 in the Algarve, José Apolinário, the consul of Spain in the Algarve, Eduardo Serra Jorge, the consul general of Portugal in Seville, João Queirós, the president of the Commission of the Regional Coordination and Development of the Algarve, Francisco Serra, and the regional director of Agriculture and Fisheries of the Algarve, Pedro Monteiro will be present. They join António Pina, president of AMAL, and João Fernandes, president of Turismo do Algarve.

This moment marks the end of the suspension of the exceptional and temporary measure to control people on the borders between the two countries, which was part of the programme to combat the pandemic of the Covid-19 disease.


Do we need to carry proof of Residencia in Portugal, passports etc. Can we travel to Ayamonte and back with no hold up at the borders?

I don't suppose any of these complacent shiny suits have thought to consult the public whose lives they are endangering with this stunt.
