Vaccination Passport Portugal: What Does It Mean?

iVisa | Updated on May 03, 2022

A few weeks ago, the European Commission showed its proposal for the creation of a digital document to prove vaccination, testing, or recovery from COVID-19. This document is commonly referred to as a ‘Vaccination Passport’, and as you can guess, all the countries in the EU, including Portugal, are working hard to launch this document without issues.

The Vaccination Passport Portugal might be a thing in a few months, but for now, what we can ensure, is that you must have a Health Declaration on hand before entering this country. Plus, both things might end up being the same, so it’s not a challenge at all.

Europe is more than Spain, France, and Italy. There are so many countries to visit in the old continent, and Portugal is surely one of the most interesting. This country is popular for its capital city, Lisbon, but that’s not all that it has to offer. Portugal is home to the beautiful beaches of Algarve, as well as the delicious wine in Porto and Madeira. Thanks to its location, Portuguese cuisine is one of the most recognizable in the world, especially with plates full of codfish and sardines.

Aside from that, Portugal is also a place with hundreds of castles, built many centuries ago. All of these castles tend to be surrounded by beautiful plants and flowers like lavenders, lilacs, sunflowers, lilies, daffodils, and daisies.

You can visit many places in Portugal aside from Libson. For example, Porto, Fátima, and the Portuguese Riviera. You can also explore Northern Portugal if you want to relax in quiet valleys and greenish parks.

Regardless of what you prefer to do in Portugal, do not forget to get your Health Declaration at iVisa.com.
