Where to get a Covid test in Portugal:
In the public areas of Lisbon, Faro, Oporto and Madeira airports there are Synlab laboratories that allow RT-PCR and antigen testing.
Since some countries require the presentation of (rapid) antigen testing before flight, test areas at airports give priority to passengers travelling to these destinations.
You can perform tests at the following locations:
Public Area: Synlab Laboratory (next to CTT) - from 6:00 am - 10:00 pm
Public Area: P1 car park – from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm
Public Area: UCS Laboratory (next to Premium TAP) - from 6:00 am - 10:00 pm
For transferring passengers: Gate 24 - from 8:00 am to 11:00 am (only for passengers on connection)
Public Area: next to airline counters in the check-in area
Public Area: Level 3, near the check-in area
Public Area: Level 1, next to ANA information desk
The need to present an RT-PCR test for COVID-19 and/or antigen (rapid) test with a negative result depends on the destination, so you should check official websites for further information, such as ANAC or IATA Travel Centre, or with the airline, travel agency and/or official entities. You can find here the list of laboratories recommended by the Portugal’s Directorate-General of Health (DGS).
