Portugal's Madeira Island (province) has launched “Green Corridor” for vaccinated crew and passengers. The island's main cruise port is Funchal, while smaller-sized luxury ships may also visit Port Santo Island.
The “Green Corridor” applies to crew and passengers vaccinated and recovered from the Coronavirus (COVID-19), as well as those with PCR screening tests of SARS-CoV-2 infection with a negative test result, performed within a maximum period of 72 hours before landing.
Crew members and passengers must certify either via a medical document, up and until 90 days from the port entrance of Madeira, that the holder has COVID-19 antibodies or via a document that certifies the holder has been vaccinated.
The medical document/vaccination certificate has to be validated by the respective country of origin. It includes the number of health registration, name, date of birth, type/date of the test, type/date of vaccine, date of the 2 doses taken (in line with the immunization period according to the instructions of each vaccine).
The decision will foster economic activity and maintain the reputation of Madeira as a safe and secure destination.
The green corridor was in force at Madeira airport for travelers who arrive with a negative PCR test 72 hours before the arrival.
