Portugal has kept a lid on the spread of COVID-19 and is on track to further loosen restrictions next week.

Although Portugal has lifted the COVID-19 travel ban on tourists, Nepalis visiting the country are still required to quarantine for two weeks upon arrival and must only be travelling for essential purposes. The same rule applies to Indian and other South African nationals.

Portugal has said it would allow entry for tourists from Brazil, nearly 18 months after it imposed a ban on non-essential travel from the Portuguese-speaking South American nation in order to stem the spread of coronavirus infection.

Although Brazilians were allowed access for reasons such as work, family or health, the lifting of the tourism ban has been long-awaited.

Portugal is now open to tourists from the European Union who present the bloc's digital COVID-19 certificate, as well as the US citizens who have to produce a negative test result on arrival.

Travellers from Brazil and UK no longer need to quarantine but they have to provide a negative PCR test result.

Brazil has had more than 20.7 million confirmed coronavirus cases and more than 580,000 COVID fatalities.

Likewise, people from Japan, Australia, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, New Zealand, Singapore and Canada will also be able to travel to Portugal if they provide a negative test.

Portugal has lifted most restrictions with a three-stage plan, supported by a speedy and efficient vaccination rollout.

About 73 per cent of the population in Portugal was fully vaccinated, as of Wednesday, the ministries data showed.
