    According to Portugal Tourism Board, “the coverage extends to the entire national territory and includes, among others, medical, surgical, pharmaceutical and hospital expenses associated with Covid-19, as well as expenses for cancellation, interruption or extension of the trip, also for the same pandemic ”.

    “The objective is to guarantee, to all who visit Portugal, that they can travel around the country, safe and with confidence”, assures Turismo de Portugal, adding that this is another initiative that Turismo de Portugal “is divulging to the markets to reinforce the security of the destination, in addition to the creation of the ‘Clean & Safe’ seal and the renewal of the ‘Portugal Health Passport’, which now includes Covid-19 tests and is available to all who visit the our country”.
