According to Raul Martins, “there will be no consequence for tourism in Portugal.”

In comments to Lusa News Agency, the AHP chief said that Brexit just “moves things from an informal to a formal situation.”

“Britons who are in favour of the exit don’t travel as they are so British that they don’t leave” the UK, Raul Martins told Lusa.

He added that the British tourists who choose to visit will be welcomed just the same, adding that “there won’t be any barriers at customs for UK tourists” and the “British nationals who did not want Europe have held this position for some time already.”
