Safety and Security

Do not travel.

We now advise all not to travel overseas at this time, due to the health risks from the COVID-19 pandemic and the significant disruptions to global travel. This includes to Portugal. If you’re already overseas and wish to return to Australia, we recommend you do so as soon as possible by commercial means. From midday 17 March, all travel to the EU and Schengen Area is restricted for 30 days for non-EU nationals. Commercial flights out of Portugal are increasingly limited and may cease without warning. If you decide to return to Australia, we recommend you arrange to do so immediately. Contact your airline, travel agent or insurance company to arrange flights back to Australia. If you can’t or don’t want to return to Australia, follow the advice of local authorities. Take care to minimise your risk of exposure to COVID-19 including by self-isolating. If you choose to stay, note our ability to provide consular assistance may be limited due to restrictions on movement and other services. We now advise you to: Do not travel to Portugal.
