Portugal: Multi-language information on COVID-19 (Unofficial translation)
In its response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Portuguese government published updated information on measures, guidelines and recommendations from relevant authorities. There was particular focus on provision of information to those within the High Commission for Migration, as well as its services and its customers.
One of the publications is a leaflet on measures aimed at preventing the spread of the virus, released in 11 languages: Arabic, Bangla, English, Farsi, French, Hindi, Mandarin, Nepalese, Portuguese, Romanian and Russian. It includes a concise summary of symptoms, prevention tactics, useful National Health Service contacts, and self-isolation advice.
The information released is relevant to Portuguese residents only, as guidelines vary by country.
In the High Commission for Migration’s online portal foreign citizens can find guidance and recommendations in English, including the latest measures adopted by Portuguese municipalities concerning public road circulation, opening and closing times for shops and coronavirus testing.
