The Portugal News has already sent letters to the Irish Taoiseach Micheál Martin and also to Leo Varadkar, pointing out that Portugal and the Algarve are safe places to visit for tourists, which has been reflected in the decision of the British government to remove the 14 day quarantine period imposed on those returning from Portugal to the UK.

As with the highly successful campaign to open the air bridge to the UK, The Portugal News will now be calling on the Irish government to place Portugal on the Green List of destinations.

The President of the Republic has said that he hopes that Ireland would follow the example of the United Kingdom and remove Portugal from the list of air corridors in countries at risk, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“The United Kingdom had preceded the Irish decision, there is a great deal of proximity in points of view in some aspects and therefore I hope that this will also happen with Ireland”, he said.
