The time it takes to clear immigration at Lisbon’s Humberto Delgado Airport has climbed to over three hours in recent weeks.

According to a report Diário de Notícias, sources at the airport revealed that average waiting times to clear passport control have been above 45 minutes on 70 percent of the days so far this year.
Last week, waiting times exceeded three hours.

The situation is being blamed on the fact that a significant increase in passenger numbers has not been accompanied by a reinforcement of immigration officials.
