  2. Passengers on flights from countries whose epidemiological situation is in accordance with Council Recommendation (EU) 2020/912, of 30 June 2020, namely Canada and Morocco;
  3. Passengers on flights from countries that are not members of the European Union or that are not countries associated with the Schengen Area, exclusively for essential travel, thus:
    1. Citizens of the European Union, nationals of States associated with the Schengen Area and members of their families, in accordance to the Directive 2004/38 / EC, of the Parliament and of the Council, and third-country nationals legally resident in a Member State of the European Union;

  4. Passengers on repatriation or humanitarian flights organized in accordance with the law.

Passengers on flights described in sub paragraphs a) and b) are not required to submit a negative RT-PCR molecular test for COVID-19, performed within 72 hours prior to the flight.

All passengers (including Portuguese citizens, residing in Portugal and their families) on the flights described in paragraphs c) and d) must present proof of laboratory testing (RT-PCR) for the screening of SARS-CoV-2, with a negative result, performed within 72 hours prior to the time of departure, or they will be denied boarding.

NOTE - The test must be a molecular RT-PCR test and rapid tests are not acceptable.

Exceptions to the rule of mandatory presentation of negative test results before boarding:

  • Passengers of Portuguese nationality and passengers with legal residence in Portugal, on flights originating in African Portuguese speaking countries or any origin in a third country on repatriation or humanitarian flights:

The questionnaire will present various possibilities and the passenger will have to opt between one of the following:

  • The first is you have already been tested for SARS-CoV-2 virus on the 72 hours preceding your flight to the Azores and the result was negative. In this case you will have to show the physical document issued by a lab that proves that the test for SARS-CoV-2 has been performed within the 72 hours before your departure from the origin airport. That document should contain your identification, the lab where the test was performed, the date of the test, the signature of the people who performed the test, and the NEGATIVE result. If the stay will be longer than seven days, the passenger should, on the 6th day from the date SARS-CoV-2 test was performed, contact the health services of the county where you are staying so that another test can be performed by the Health Authorities that will inform you of the result.
  • Alternatively, you can choose the second option: This option consists of starting the procedures to perform the SARS-CoV-2 test as soon as you land. For that, the professionals of the Health Authorities at the airport will need to collect biological samples so that they may perform the SARS-CoV-2 test. After the test has been performed, you must stay in prophylactic isolation at your home or place where you are staying until you get the results of the test. In this case and if the stay will be longer than seven days, the passenger should, on the 6th day from the date SARS-CoV-2 test was performed, contact the health services of the district where you are staying so that another test can be performed by the Health Authorities that will inform you of the result.
  • You also have a third option: go back to the place where you boarded or travel to any airport outside of the Autonomous Region of the Azores, being until the time of departure, in prophylactic isolation in a hotel indicated for this purpose.

You must oblige to the rules of wearing a mask, social distancing, and breathing etiquette defined by the Regional Health Authorities. 

In case the passenger refuses to oblige to all the previewed procedures, the Local Health Authority can, within the framework of its powers, to enforce the compulsory quarantine for the time needed to get the results of the SARS-CoV-2 test, or if the passenger does not allow the test to be performed, during fourteen days counting from the time of arrival to the Region in a hotel indicated for this purpose, being the costs supported by the passenger. 

The non-compliance of the passenger with the prophylactic isolation under the above mentioned terms and period, as well as the non-compliance with the compulsory quarantine, in the cases it has been determined, implies the immediate file of a criminal claim of contempt by the Health Authority of the county where you are staying.

Necessary information concerning the hotel units determined for this purpose and the associated services and conditions, will be available through the COVID-19 Line for non-medical issues - 800 29 29 29 or by email esclarecimentocovid19@azores.gov.pt. Further information is also available here
