MADEIRA SAFE TO DISCOVER

In view of the emerging global pandemic situation, originated by the novice coronavirus SARS-COV-2, it was the primary concern of the Regional Government of Madeira to ensure the protection and integral well-being of its citizens and tourists. In this sense, the islands of Madeira and Porto Santo are a pioneer destination in the fight against COVID-19, being the first region in Portugal to have a Contingency Plan for Emerging Infections, to develop a best practices document and create an online platform for the registration of travellers (madeirasafe.com). Considered one of the safest destinations in Europe, based on recognized proven criteria, the Autonomous Region of Madeira (RAM) was able to combine safety and leisure, providing its visitors with a peaceful and comfortable vacation or business visit, thus justifying the epithet of the World’s Leading Island Destination. As a result of the timely promotion for the safeguard of the population’s public health and the prompt adoption of measures by the Regional Government of Madeira, so as to contain and reduce the epidemic, the risk of contagion and the progression of COVID-19, the Autonomous Region of Madeira currently presents a controlled epidemiological situation, with a low rate of infection and active cases, most of which are imported, and fortunately, no deaths have been registered to date as evidenced by the data published by the Regional Health Authority. In view of the indicators achieved, the Autonomous Region of Madeira decided to reopen to tourism on July 1, date on which the Standardization Plan for Air Accessibility was implemented. Even so, all entry into the territory, by air and by sea, remains conditioned, due to the sanitary control and prevention measures still in force. Ports and Marinas are also open to all types of vessels, including cruise ships. However, boarding and disembarkation presuppose the fulfillment of a series of procedures, as stated in Resolution No. 509/2020 (portuguese version).
In the case of cruise ships, the boarding, disembarkation and the coming ashore of passengers and crew will be analised on a case by case basis and subject to the favourable decision by the Regional Health Authorities, as contained in Resolution no. 772/2020 (portuguese version). On August 1, the Regional Government of Madeira determined the mandatory use of a community mask for protection against COVID-19, in areas or places of access, permanence or public use, or equivalent, except for the exceptions as stated in point 11 of Resolution no. 623/2020 (portuguese version).
