Portugal has guaranteed that those who have emigrated can return to Portugal without being quarantined

PORTUGAL’S Minister of State and Presidency, Mariana Vieira da Silva, has guaranteed that emigrants will be able to return to Portugal without being quarantined.
“Unless you come from countries in great difficulty, there is no mandatory quarantine. There is monitoring by health authorities and their decisions must be respected, as they are the ones who are able to assess the risk in each case,” said da Silva.
The minister also stressed that there are, at this moment, “several conditions that allow people to cross borders” and the return of travellers to Portugal “is one of them, which has existed throughout this period and continues to exist. All people have always been able to return to their country,” she pointed out.
Mariana Vieira da Silva also said that the government has not yet decided whether to impose mandatory quarantine on the Spanish when the border reopens in June.
Recently, remember, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs also guaranteed that there are no prohibitions or restrictions on the arrival of emigrants in the summer, particularly for those residing in Europe.
Minister Augusto Santos Silva’s office then emphasised that the government intends that “emigrants can come to Portugal in the summer to reunite with their families and, as they have always done, to support the recovery of the economy.”
