Due to the epidemiological evolution, travel between Madeira and Porto Santo Islands, is subject to control. Therefore passengers disembarking at Porto Santo Airport, who do not have a PCR screening test for SARS-CoV-2 with a negative result, carried out up to 72 hours prior to boarding, have to perform a PCR test for SARS-CoV-2 upon arrival, to be promoted by the health authority, thus remaining in isolation in the respective home or hotel establishment where he is lodging, until a negative test result is obtained.
Passengers boarding at the Funchal Port

or at the Emergency and Public Health Unit, with a minimum of 4 days in advance (96 hours), via the following e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Taking the PCR test for SARS-CoV-2 infection does not incur any charges for the traveller.
