Tourists from the United States who wish to visit Portugal should have gotten both doses of the vaccinations recommended by the European Medicines Agency at least 14 days before they travel to Portugal, said Economy Minister Pedro Siza Vieira.

Although there still aren’t many details, it’s sure that Portugal is joining the steadily growing list of European countries that are reopening their borders to fully vaccinated US citizens, like Spain, Italy, Norway, Denmark and Croatia. It becomes important to mention that those who wish to travel to Portugal via Spain may also be able to do so hassle-free as borders between the two countries are open. 

As travel restrictions between the EU countries decrease, people and families are rushing to secure a home and become residents of the world’s safest countries. Portugal was considered as one of the safest countries to travel to after the covid pandemic and has also started to provide a Health Passport and Travel Insurance to incoming tourists so that they are able to move safely around the country. Learn more about these insurances here. 

More and more people are coming to Portugal thanks to the country’s Mediterranean marvels and the opportunity to benefit from some of the most favourable residency-by-investment programmes in the EU. On top of that, Portugal also holds one of the strongest passports in the world, as well as the 22nd strongest healthcare system in the world! Another reason why individuals are rushing to Portugal is the fact that high profitable properties in central Lisbon are running out due to the upcoming Golden Visa changes that will be set into motion in January 2022. In fact, those who wish to purchase the Portuguese Golden Visa in order to get healthy long-term returns, only have 6 months to apply.

My property advisor, Mathew McGurn, was truly excellent! His knowledge, professionalism and attention to details was much appreciated. He worked hard to not only find a property that fit all my requirements, he negotiated successfully with agents making sure my offer won over other buyers bidding for the same property. In addition, his communication skills, prompt response time and general help with my getting settled in Portugal went above and beyond the normal.
