Today I would like to report from my own experience about the Covid-19 test in Madeira.
If you make the right preparations, the process is quite simple and doesn’t take long to enter the country.
The prerequisite is that you log on to the website beforehand and fill in the questions so that you don’t have to do this at the airport. In addition to some personal data, the following is also requested. Airline, flight number, seat and exact address in Madeira. From these data, the program can create a QR code that you have to show on entry and which will be scanned. After that you also get a barcode which you need to query the data the next day. Usually, however, the result is announced to you by email no later than 6 to 12 hours.

After that, it’s just a test. On the way you will get a banana and something to drink.
The test is quick and easy and takes maximum 3 Min. Then you are through and have to stay in the hotel or the specified accommodation until you receive the result.
Important to know: The test is free and there are no additional costs. It is therefore worth considering whether you take the test in your home country or not.
Madeira is safe and you don’t need to be afraid if you follow the relevant regulations and instructions, as in your home country.
Welcome to our beautiful island!
