COVID SAFE TOURISM
The Autonomous Region of Madeira (RAM) was a pioneer in the whole Portugal, in developing a good practices document to deal with Covid-19 - COVID SAFE TOURISM (english version), resulting from the involvement of the entire tourism sector along with the launch of a certification process that will reassure consumer confidence and hence promote Madeira as a safe tourism location for all visitors.
All passengers who, upon disembarking at the airports of the Autonomous Region of Madeira from any territory out of the Autonomous Region of Madeira, carry a negative TRAg test for COVID-19, carried out within 48 hours prior to boarding, in laboratories certified by national or international authorities, can proceed to their destination.
All passengers who disembark at the ports and marinas of the Autonomous Region of Madeira, from any territory outside the Region, may proceed to their destination upon the presentation of proof of TRAg screening tests for SARS-CoV-2 infection, with a negative result, carried out within the maximum period of 48 hours, prior to embarkment, unless you are in possession of a PCR test performed within a maximum period of 72 hours prior to embarkment.
On the otherhand, passengers who have not undergone TRAg testing at their location of origin will do so upon arrival at the airport, for free, then proceed to their destination, thus having to fully comply with the surveillance and self-reporting of symptoms, as well as the COVID-19 preventive measures, until a negative test result is obtained.
Taking the TRAg test for SARS-CoV-2 infection does not incur any charges for the traveller.
Recommend all travelers disembarking in the Archipelago of Madeira and those traveling between islands (Madeira and Porto Santo), whether by air or sea, to register on the website www.madeirasafe.com.
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.
