Amber rules mean travellers arriving home from Portugal will now have to self-isolate for 10 days and pay for two PCR tests to take on day 2 and day 8.

Breaking quarantine could lead to a £10,000 fine with those who do not take tests on day 2 and day 8 of their self-isolation facing £2,000 penalties.

Natalya did not specify if she was still in the country or posting throwback snaps, after Portugal moved onto the government’s amber list as of 4am on Tuesday. 

 

What tests do you need when returning from foreign countries? 

GREEN LIST

You will be required to take a lateral flow test within 72 hours of your return flight to England, followed by a PCR test on or before the second day of your return. You will not be required to self-isolate during this time.

The cost of a PCR test can be up to £125 each in Britain, while a lateral flow test taken abroad at Faro Airport, for example, is about €30 (£25).

When arriving in the foreign country, you may also need to need provide proof of a negative PCR taken within 72 hours of your outbound flight, or proof of vaccination, depending on the destination’s requirements.

AMBER LIST

You will be required either to quarantine at home for ten days on your return and take a PCR test on days two and eight, as well as a lateral flow test before the return flight.

Or you can pay for an additional third ‘Test to Release’ on day five to end self-isolation early. You will still need to take the compulsory second test on or after day eight.

British families of four in Portugal now face having to pay £1,500 to buy three sets of PCR tests at £125 each, if they go under the ‘Test to Release’ scheme.

Adding this to the cost of a lateral flow test, which can be bought at Faro Airport for €30 (£25), the total cost for a family of four would be about £1,600.

RED LIST

If you travel to a red list country, or are in an amber country that turns red before you return, you would need to quarantine at a government-approved hotel on your return at a cost of £1,750.

Before you travel to England, you must take a PCR or lateral flow test and get a negative result during the three days before you travel.

You should also book a quarantine hotel package – including two further tests for when you are in the hotel – and complete a passenger locator form.
