    Despite the travel ban, the FCO updated its travel pages to explain the strict requirements in place for entry to Portugal, as well as the Portuguese archipelago of Madeira, Porto Santo and the Azores.

    “Direct air travel to Portugal is permitted for any purpose from the UK, the European Area, Australia, Canada, China, Georgia, Japan, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia and Uruguay,” explains the FCO website.

    It continues: “If you are travelling to Portugal from the UK, the European Area, Australia, Canada, China, Georgia, Japan, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia or Uruguay, you will be subject to health screening on arrival at mainland airports and ports.

    “Your temperature will be checked and if it is 38 degrees celsius or over or you show signs of being unwell, you will be referred to the health authorities at the airport.
