The destination is on the British amber list which will soon be deleted for several months.
Current cases are down with 781 new infections per day, just 6% of January’s peak.
About 77% of the country’s population have received at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine.
Britons who wish to travel to Portugal and who are fully vaccinated can use the Covid digital vaccination certificate or the EU’s Covid certificate proving that they have recovered between 11 and 180 days of travel.

Anyone who does so will not need to provide a negative Covid-19 test to enter Portugal.
They must also complete a passenger locator card online.
Anyone without these documents will have to take a PCR test within 72 hours of departure, or an antigen test within 48 hours.
Those arriving will be screened, and anyone with a temperature over 38 degrees Celsius – or showing signs of discomfort – could be asked to take another test and stay at the airport until their results.
Britons could also be asked to show their test results or documents at border control.
Children aged 11 and under do not have to provide documentation or a negative test.
