RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Passengers flying indirectly to Portugal from Britain or Brazil must present a negative COVID-19 test taken 72 hours before departure and quarantine for two weeks upon arrival from Sunday onwards, the interior ministry said on Saturday, March 6th.
The move is designed to close a loophole which allowed travelers from Britain and Brazil to reach Portugal by stopping over in a country from which travel was authorized.
Direct commercial or private flights to and from Britain and Brazil have been banned since January to limit the spread of COVID-19 variants.
