Pandemic situation in Portugal

As one of the worldwide top countries, nearly 85% of the Portuguese population is fully vaccinated (27/09/21). Reaching this high vaccination percentage Portugal releases most of the COVID rules as of 01 October 2021. Restaurants and hotels are operating like “normal” again. There is only the obligation to wear masks like in hospitals, big commercial spaces, event locations and public transport. Although it is still recommended to still use masks where you cannot keep the physical distance.
The EU digital COVID-certificate will still be necessary for air and sea travels, bis sport and cultural events, health centres, bar and clubs.

Check-In requirements at #emcasa – boutique GUESTHOUSE

For the safety of all guests and employees (all fully vaccinated) we decided that for check-in it is still necessary to present a valid digital EU COVID certificate or a negative COVID-19 test for all guests after 01/10/21 as it was before. We thank you for you understanding.

We accept the following tests:

  • Certified PCR-test carried out within 72h before its presentation or
  • Antigen test with laboratory report, carried out within 48h before its presentation or
  • Rapid antigen self test in the presence of a health professional (e.g pharmacy) who certifies its performance and result, carried within 24h before its presentation or
  • Rapid antigen self test carried out at the entrance of the hotel facilities under verification of the responsible of the property.

Please feel free to contact us for more information about the situation in Portugal or further information you might need.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
