Portugal to start welcoming vaccinated Americans next week

Portugal is due to start welcoming vaccinated American citizens as soon as next week, Portugal’s Minister of State and Economy has revealed.

Pedro Siza Vieira told reporters in Arouca this week that Portugal will begin accepting American citizens “as long as they hold a vaccination certificate that proves that they have received a Covid-19 vaccine over two weeks ago that has been approved by the European Medicines Agency.”
