Since the UK entered lockdown on 23 March Britons have not been allowed to travel as the Foreign & Commonwealth Office advised against all but essential travel.
Portugal’s ambassador to the UK said his country wants to welcome British tourists back, now the coronavirus alert level has dropped.
Manuel Lobo Antunes told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, “There was very good news for you, for us, for Europe that the alert system has come from four to three and that means a significant improvement in the control of the pandemic here in the UK.
“We think that the situation is under control and we would be happy to receive, as before, as many British as possible.”
The UK quarantine measures are to be reviewed by the Home Secretary Priti Patel on 29 June, after imposing the measures on 8 June.
