Lisbon, February 13th (EFE). Portugal announced today that it is extending until March 1 the suspension of all commercial or private flights that have an origin or destination in Brazil and the United Kingdom, a measure that was taken in January due to the state of detection of the Coronavirus pandemic and new variants.
The decision has been amended with the dates on which the new extension of Portugal’s state of emergency will be in effect, between February 15 and March 1.
During this period, only humanitarian flights will be permitted to repatriate Portuguese citizens and their families, as well as those residing in Portugal.
These citizens are required to submit a negative PCR report to be conducted within 72 hours before boarding and maintain 14 days of quarantine upon arrival in Portugal.
On humanitarian flights, citizens or residents of the European Union or countries associated with the Schengen area are also allowed to board the plane, along with their families, exclusively to return home.
They must also submit a negative PCR report prior to boarding and, upon arrival in Portugal, make a mandatory stopover at the designated airport location.
Likewise, flight restrictions imposed two weeks ago for European Union countries or associated with the Schengen area remained until March 1.
Among them, the requirement, in addition to negative CRP, of 14-day quarantine for those coming from countries where the infection rate of Coronavirus exceeds 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. EFE
