Portugal welcomes travelers from European Union countries that have recorded fewer than 500 new cases per 100,000 residents in the last 14 days.
For the Czech Republic, this value is 163, so it fulfills this requirement. Nationals of nearly all 27 countries can now travel to Portugal, except for Cyprus, Croatia, Lithuania, the Netherlands and Sweden. The lifting of restrictions also applies to tourists from the United Kingdom, who left the union last year.
Before entering the country, it is necessary to present a negative PCR test, which is no more than 72 hours old. The authorities may also penalize the airline in question for not complying with these conditions.
Restaurants, cafes and bars are open all over Portugal. Maximum six people can sit at the table indoors and ten people in the garden.
Shops can be opened until 9:00 pm, and there is a limit of 5 customers per 100 square meters2.
For one to wear a towel, there must be a veil
Czech Ambassador Peter Zeliba is appealing to travelers who are already looking forward to Portuguese shores, so that they do not forget the restrictions that await them there.
When entering the beach, beach promenade, or toilet, it is essential to cover your mouth with a curtain. Towels should be at least 1.5 meters apart, umbrellas 3 meters apart.
I’m at Maria’s Beach Bar in Vale Do Lobo and I’m told some fairly big news. There’s a new law introduced today – although you must wear a mask when outdoors in Portugal, this need not be at the beach. Social distancing remains in place. Embed a Tweet pic.twitter.com/KyFgjRxsQT

Each beach will have a specified maximum capacity, and according to the ambassador, a “beach traffic light” should be turned on this year, just like last year, to let people know if the beach is still vacant.
Sports will also be banned on the crowded beaches.
These rules went into effect on Wednesday and will be overseen by the Coast Guard. Meanwhile, Portuguese ministers agreed last week that people could be fined from 50 to 100 euros (1,200-2,500 CZK) for violating the restrictions.
The obligation to wear a headscarf in public still applies wherever a gap cannot be maintained. As Novinki indicated in mid-February, sincere adherence to this measure was the main key to getting out of the disastrous situation brought on by the winter wave, according to the Czechs living in Portugal.
