Scheduled to be in Portugal in two weeks flying in from the USA to hopefully buy new home. 
Im reading that the state of calamity goes back into effect Dec 1st and that Digital certificate required for access to restaurants and hotels

I am booked at two Airbnb’s and one hotel. One of the Airbnb hosts messaged me that my Neg covid test paperwork will be fine the other not sure still no word from the hotel.

I can’t find any info on how a US Citizen can get a digital passport showing a Neg covid test.

can anyone one help with any information? Thank you

the digital certificate needed to access hotels and restaurants is the vaccination  certificate, but you will need a negative covid test to enter the Country

Will restaurants and hotels take a US vaccine card?

I think so, if you read below some members say that they used their certificates a few months back.

@sonia Yes, we arrived in Lisbon on Sunday.  Before we could fly out of the US on TAP airlines we had to show a negative test...regardless of a vaccination card.  We had to show it again in customs.  Be sure to have a current negative test.  Many passengers didn't get "the memo" at were turned away at the boarding gate. 😣

The rules in place in Portugal starting today (December 1st) are:

Mandatory presentation of the vaccination certificate accessing to:

  • Restaurants;
  • Touristic establishments and local lodging;
  • Events with marked seats;
  • Gyms.

Is demanded a negative COVID test (even for vaccinated persons) when accessing:

  • Visiting nursing homes;
  • Visiting patients in health institutions;
  • Big events without marked seats (or in improvised inclosure) and sporting places;
  • Discotheques and bars.
  •  
  • At the borders:
    • Mandatory negative test for all flights arriving to Portugal (also at land borders);

@antonio_f thanks Antonio. I think my hotel is incorrect to have asked for a PCR test when we have UK vaccine certificates.

I wonder whether it is because we earlier this year our UK covid certificate was not valid in the EU but it is now, instead of the EU one.
