Re: Covid - again !!

We returned to UK on Saturday having spent last 2.5 weeks in Carvoeiro. When we arrived we needed to show Vaccine confirmation and proof of negative test.

Re: Onze

Hi Dave
Yes we were out at a similar time to you and found that a few of our old favourites weren't open. That's the impact that our government's actions are having on the innocent Portuguese business owners. Very sad and depressing how insular our nation has become.

Re: Taxes

Hi Sue
No we've not received anything and wondered if it was due to the change in status following departure from EU. We have appointed people to handle tax affairs so thought they may well have received correspondence but we've yet to hear from them either.

Re: Use of cash

We were out in July and cash is still widely accepted in restaurants and shops. To be honest, once you're in Carvoeiro there is very little noticeable difference apart from the fact that it is very quiet. You don't have the media generated hysteria that you unfortunately get all of the time in UK.
