When to Visit

Rural, rustic, traditional, full of style, flavors, traditions, and substance. Alentejo is one of the national wine capitals and its generous reds and unforgettable whites are something that could almost have been drawn by a renaissance painter.

Visiting the Alentejo is a great program at any time of year, no doubt about it! The weather in the Alentejo changes according to each of the four seasons, as do the activities and attractions available. In other words, every season or climate is a different Alentejo for you to enjoy!

Passports & Visas

EU citizens within the Schengen area are able to enter the country simply by exhibiting their ID card – which is mandatory when flying, for example, but may not always be asked for when entering via land. Passports are of course valid as well, while no visa or return ticket is required.

International travelers (outside the EU) must provide a valid passport with at least six months’ validity, as well as proof of sufficient funds to cover their stay. A return ticket is recommended but not compulsory.

European citizens do not need a visa to enter Portugal, however should their stay be longer than 90 days they will need to apply for a residence permit.

CDC Information

A digital certificate with full vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test is no longer required to enter Portugal! You can travel to Portugal without a test or proof of vaccination.
