Update on rules for entering Portugal BY LAND

Update on rules for entering Portugal BY LAND --As nossas desculpas por este artigo não ter tradução --

Land borders will remain open and the Government determined the following restrictions to be in force from 1st of December 2021 to 9th of February 2022:
 
1 – All people arriving from countries outside the European Union (EU) or from EU countries considered to have a red or dark red risk level, when they do not have the EU Digital COVID Certificate for the test or recovery modalities, must present either:
 
a) Laboratory proof of negative PCR test performed in the last 72 hours;
b) Laboratory proof of negative rapid antigen test performed in the last 48 hours;
 
2 - People arriving from EU countries considered to be at low or moderate risk, must have an EU Digital COVID Certificate for vaccination, test or recovery.
 
3 - Cross-border workers - considered as such for carrying out their professional activity within 30 kilometers of the border - and workers in essential services (such as transport of goods and passengers, emergency and relief, security and emergency services) must present the EU Digital COVID Certificate in any of the three modalities.
 
The GNR and SEF will carry out random inspection operations at border crossing points. Anyone who does not present one of the aforementioned certificates or evidence is notified to carry out a COVID test - at the citizen's own expense - in places indicated by the health authorities, which must be within a radius of 30 km from the inspection site and where citizens must wait for the respective result.
 
Anyone who does not present proof of COVID testing or refuses to take one of the aforementioned tests is sanctioned with a fine of 300 to 800 euros.
