Essential travel?

Hi everyone, we are planned to come to portugal jn July to look for a house as a prep for the golden visa process. Will it be considered as essential travel due to current travel restrictions?

Hi @arielcohen, right now you cannot enter with a tourism Visa :expressionless:
Unless you travel for work reasons, have a fiscal residence, come to do the biometric, you cannot come.
Wait for things come better :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:. and Portugal open for tourism

Thanks for the comments !!
Do you think we should expect some changes by July ? (we are fully vaccinated)

You should know by May :ok_hand:

Essential travel is defined on current Portugal government sites. See:

Speaking as a U.S. citizen who has an active Portuguese Golden Visa residency card (GRP card) that’s valid through December 2021, I am still not certain of a few things despite reading these and other sources, and was wondering if anyone could advise me:

  • We are fully vaccinated and have the cards to prove it. Can I go to the Madeira islands without having to quarantine?
  • Same question, but for Lisboa? That is, as GV residents would we be able to go into Lisboa (remember we have active GRP cards).

Best,
