COVID-19 - Procedural

Upon arrival at the Accreditation Office: 

All athletes, officials, heads of delegation and physiotherapists that came from outside the region, must present their negative test to COVID-19.

This document are recommendations that may be updated in the future, they will always depend on the evolution of the COVID-19 Pandemic.


If you intend to arrive on the island of Madeira on the eve of the Championships, it is recommended that you come with the COVID-19 test done, because when you do it here at the airport you have to wait for the result in confinement for a maximum of 12 hours, and if the test result is inconclusive, you will have to wait again in confinement. This waiting time can delay your check in to the competition.

To participate in these championships, you must present a negative COVID-19 test.
