As the COVID-19 situation evolves, on August 6 the Department of State lifted the Global Level 4 Health Advisory. Portugal is currently under a Level 3 Travel Advisory  (Reconsider travel).

As global health conditions continue to evolve, State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) is reviewing its posture toward the conduct of international exchanges and other in-person programming.

In these unprecedented and difficult times, the Fulbright Commission in Portugal remains committed to doing everything we can to support our grantees, and we are in close contact with them. Their health and safety, as always, remain our number one priority.

We are also tracking institutions’ evolving contingency plans regarding the opening of academic year 2020-2021.

The Fulbright team in Portugal is now working partially at the office and from home and completely available to answer your questions by email or by phone –
