GREAT NEWS FOR OUR RETREATERS

Now you can get through passport control at Faro even faster, as Portugal becomes the first EU country to reopen the electronic gates at passport control.

No more queueing for the people in the glass boxes, no more having to have all your paperwork in an expanding file – you just make sure you put the passport in the right way round, hold it flat and look at the camera.

Now, the only challenge is choosing the right queue without being behind the person who has never used one before!!
