The United Kingdom prohibits the entry of travelers from Portugal due to the new Brazilian variant of Covid-19.
The announcement was made this Thursday by British Transport Minister Grant Shapps, via social media.
In addition to Portugal, Brazil, Cape Verde, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay and Venezuela are included in this “black list”.
Portugal was placed in this batch of countries with travel restrictions to the United Kingdom due to close links with Brazil, the British minister said.
“However, there is an exemption for transporters traveling from Portugal (only), to allow the transport of essential goods”, underlines Grant Shapps.
The London government had been meeting this Thursday to take action on the new variant of Covid-19 from Brazil.
