From 1 July 2021, all passengers who have a Digital COVID19 Test Certificate issued by a health authority of an EU country can travel to or within Azores.
For the issuance of your Digital COVID19 Test Certificate within 72 hours before travelling, you can get tested in a network of laboratories with an agreement with the Regional Government of Azores throughout the country. All tests made for travels to Azores in one of those laboratories are paid by the Regional Government of Azores. After scheduling your test, you should appear at the laboratory at the time and date established and follow the information that was given to you.
If you tested negative, you must request your Digital Green Certificate on the SNS24 portal, http://sns24.gov.pt, or with your national health authority, in the case of foreign citizens. Before you travel, you should also register your travel and certificate on the platform MySafeAzores (http://mysafeazores.com) for early validation of submitted documentation.
Note: Children with 12 years or younger can travel without having to show any certificate or test result
From 1 July 2021, all passengers who travel to or within Azores and who have a valid EU Digital COVID19 Vaccination Certificate, i.e., 14 days after complete vaccination, issued by a health authority of a European country do not need to get tested for SARS-CoV-2.
Portuguese citizens can request their Digital VACCINATION OR RECOVERY Certificate on the SNS24 portal, http://sns24.gov.pt. Foreign citizens should contact their national health authority for more information.
The Digital RECOVERY Certificate is valid for 180 days after recovery.
Passengers who want to travel, by air or by sea, to Azores or from the Island of São Miguel to any of the other eight islands without a Digital COVID19 Certificate, or passengers who come from any area of active community transmission or with active SARS-CoV-2 transmission chains, as defined by the World Health Organisation, must get tested when they get to their final destination, unless they present proof, issued by a national or international accredited laboratory, that they did an RT-PCR Covid-19 test within 72 hours before flight or ship departure.
All tests made for travels to Azores in one of those laboratories are paid by the Regional Government of Azores. After scheduling your test, you should appear at the laboratory at the time and date established and follow the information that was given to you.
People who are exempt from presenting a test result when travelling:
If you tested positive, do not go to the airport, and contact the health authorities of your residence area.
If you tested negative, you should register your travel with the platform My Safe Azores (https://mysafeazores.com) for a swifter control at arrival.
