The application process is quick and easy to do, taking just a matter of minutes. All that is required is a computer or mobile device, and access to the internet.
You must apply online for the Portugal travel health form within 4 days of travel and at least 24 hours before.
The application asks each passenger to provide details of their flight, so it is recommended to complete online check-in with your airline first. By doing this, you will have your flight information at hand, such as your assigned seat number.
The online form asks you to share information that covers the following:
- Flight information: airline, flight number, seat number, etc.
- Personal details: name, date of birth, mobile number, email address, etc.
- Address in Portugal: where you will be staying during your visit
- Emergency contact information: name and phone number
Once you have inputted all of your information correctly and submitted the form, a printable version will be available. A copy will also be sent to your email address.
The completed Portugal Passenger Locator Card can either be shown as a paper copy, or on a mobile device.
It is advisable to travel with both formats, to avoid any unforeseen circumstances.
