Choose the safest possible destination for your holiday

Pico Island is one of the safest destinations in the world in relation to Covid-19.
As a result, our guests could enjoy a safe holiday with us in summer 2020 and throughout the 2021 season.

How to enter the Azores

From 1st July 2021, all you need to enter the Azores is a EU Digital COVID Certificate.

If you are travelling without a EU Digital COVID Certificate, you are then required to have a negative RT-PCR (molecular) test and the available options are the following:

  1. Get the test done in your country of origin
    It is the best option, as you will be exempt from prophylactic isolation and also benefit from a voucher granted by the Regional Government of the Azores.
    The SARS-CoV-2 test above must be performed in the 72 hours before the departure of your flight and must be still valid when landing in the island of final destination.
  2. Get tested in the Azores, upon landing on the island of final destination
    In this case, the test is paid by the Autonomous Region of the Azores, but you will be required to remain in prophylactic isolation at your accommodation until you get a negative result, communicated within 24 hours. More information here.

For stays longer than a week, a second test is required on the 6th day since your first test. The test is free of charge and there will be no need to wait for the result to carry on with your holiday.

The molecular tests are only needed if you do not have a EU Digital COVID Certificate.
