With the recently announced extension of Brexit negotiations for six more months, if you are travelling to Portugal soon, you probably want to know what will be different when planning your trip.
The Portuguese Government is preparing a contingency plan for all foreseeable Brexit outcomes. This is to avoid, as far as possible, disruption for British travellers.
This plan includes the following measures:
- Visa exemption (trips up to 90 days)
- Dedicated passport control areas/lanes for UK flights
- The possibility of mutual recognition of driving licenses
- Use of the Portuguese National Health Service
- The validity of UK travel insurance policies
- Provide simplified requirements for UK nationals´ pets
- Similar passenger security taxes
You can also consult essential information for UK nationals travelling to the EU in www.gov.uk/guidance/uk-nationals-travelling-to-eu-essential-information.
If you have any questions about entry requirements, feel free to contact the Portuguese Consulate in the United Kingdom (firstname.lastname@example.org).
You can also consult the article “Brexit: Advice for Travellers” provided by ABTA.
In any case, Portugal will continue to welcome British tourists!
