Please note: Portugal does not offer free medical treatment to visitors, and under European Union rules non-EU citizens are required to have travel medical insurance covering emergency medical, hospitalization, and repatriation (including the case of death).   Minimum coverage is 30.000 euros and the insurance must be valid for the entire Schengen area and the duration of the stay.  For more information please visit the EU Website on borders and migration.   

We can provide a list of qualified doctors, dentists and medical specialists. If you are injured or become seriously ill, we can, at your request, notify family or friends.
