Madeira has reopened to tourism and hopefully will continue to operate under separate rules to that of mainland Portugal. For example, it is not currently on the 'red list' for the British landing in mainland Portugal.
There is no quarantine in operation but visitors will be tested for Covid both before departure and upon arriving home. It will also be necessary for visitors to complete documentation detailing where they will be staying when landing in Madeira.
As of July 2021, Madeira is no longer on the UK's 'amber list' of holiday destinations. See my latest blog for details.
For the very latest travel information, with daily updates, we recommend that you follow Madeira Island Direct Blog.
Average flight times between Madeira and the UK is from three and a half to four hours.
