Portugal issues Brits gentle reminder

Portugal has announced an important passport requirement update for British holidaymakers planning to travel to the country this summer. Visitors from the UK arriving at airports including Lisbon, Porto, Faro and Funchal, were told earlier this month that they will be fast-tracked through check-ins, similar to EU citizens.

The move allowed Brits to use eGates to avoid passport control queues where visitors from many other non-EU countries have to wait in line to have their passports manually checked and stamped. It was widely welcomed as Portugal is one of the favourite holiday destinations for Brits.
