As per reports, there are fresh travel restrictions are being imposed in the countries of Spain, Portugal and Germany.
Britons who arrive at the country of Portugal and those who are non-vaccinated need to undergo mandatory quarantine for two weeks upon arrival. Any traveller who is arriving in Portugal via Air, land or sea needs to undergo mandatory quarantine or show proof of vaccination. To skip the mandatory quarantine, one should show the proof of vaccination where they should be vaccinated with both the doses of approved vaccines.
