PORTUGAL WILL RESUME admitting tourists from most European countries on Monday, the interior ministry has said, following months of restrictions to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Travellers from European Union countries with coronavirus rates below 500 cases per 100,000 residents can make “all types of visits to Portugal, including even non-essential visits”, the ministry said in a statement today.

It said restrictions, limited to essential trips, would be maintained for five EU countries — Cyprus, Croatia, Lithuania, the Netherlands and Sweden — plus Brazil, India and South Africa.
