Portugal imposes 14-day quarantine for British tourists

The Portuguese government announced that those coming to Portugal from Britain will have to undergo a 14-day quarantine, starting today, Monday, if they do not receive the vaccines for the emerging coronavirus "Covid-19" in full.


And the British newspaper, Daily Mail, reported that the new rules, which will remain in force until at least July 11, come amid a rise in daily cases of corona in Portugal similar to the rates recorded last February, when the country was subject to a strict closure.


The newspaper indicated on its website that daily cases of infection in Britain have also been on the rise for a month, explaining that the Portuguese government stated in a statement that Britons coming to Portugal by air, land or sea should provide proof that they are completely immune to Corona or submit To self-isolate for a period of 14 days, “at home or in a place determined by the health authorities.”


Portugal, which faced its worst battle against the Corona virus earlier this year, has been placed on Britain's "orange list", which means travelers must undergo expensive tests for Covid-19 and isolate at home for 10 days upon return.
