Agualusa reports confusion on arrival in Lisbon: “I’ve never seen the airport like this” – Portugal

The writer says that passengers coming from Maputo were forced to pay 85 euros for a test at Lisbon airport. They remained standing for several hours without physical distance.

Mandatory tests with a cost of 85 euros, non-existent physical distance, escape attempts and a lot of confusion – this is the scenario that the passengers of the flight that departed from Maputo and landed this Saturday in Lisbon witnessed.

The testimony is given by the writer José Eduardo Agualusa, who told the SATURDAY that the arrival at Lisbon airport “was a total mess”, with the space being transformed into “a covid factory”, due to the lack of conditions.

Passengers coming from Maputo must submit a negative test to covid-19 before boarding, are required to take a new test when they arrive in Lisbon and still have to comply with quarantine for 14 days. “We already knew that we had to take the test, but we didn’t know that we would have to pay. That’s another question, how does a mandatory test have to be paid and with that amount.”
