Fatima, Lourdes & Barcelona - Vaccination, Testing, and Entry Requirements

Please note that these travel and testing requirements are subject to change. 

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Do I have to be vaccinated to join the tour?
A: Yes, you must be vaccinated with 2 doses, or 1 in the case of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine to attend the tour. If your second dose was more than 110 days prior to the departure date of your trip, you will also need to receive the booster shot.

Q: How long before the tour do I need to have the vaccine?

A: You must have received your second dose at least 14 days prior to entry into Portugal. If you received your second dose more than 110 days before your scheduled departure date, you will be required to have the booster shot as well. (This 110-day timeline is based on the French entry requirement that if your last shot was more than 4 months before your entry into France, you must receive the booster shot. The timeline was adjusted to account for the travel days prior to arrival in France.)

Q: Do I need to get the booster shot?
A: If you received your second shot more than 110 days before the return date of your trip, you will need to receive the booster shot. This shot must be done at least 14 days prior to your departure. (Based on this timeline, the majority of our clients will need a booster shot.)
