The Regional Government of Madeira (GRM) will carry out a test for all travellers, upon arrival in Madeira islands. This measure ensures all visitors that not only the locals are virus free, but all those who enter will be scanned, thus promoting a highly secure and reassuring environment.
The government will pay for all costs of the tests upon arrival to Madeira Islands, to prevent any extra costs for travellers. However, these tests can be avoided if passengers present a PCR test with a negative result, carried out in the last 72 hours prior to departure.
The testing process is carried out by the Regional Health Authority, with the collaboration of ANA – Airports of Portugal, and strives for the highest speed with least inconvenience for travellers. Further details will be communicated in due course.
The epidemiological evolution of COVID-19 will be taken into account in the reopening plan defined for Madeira Islands.
Travellers between Madeira and Porto Santo are currently free from any control by Health authorities.
The Regional Government of Madeira, through the Regional Secretariat for Tourism and Culture, and Madeira Promotion Bureau are working side by side with all stakeholders to relaunch the Destination. Our teams are always available to share information.
