Everyone arriving in Madeira must show evidence of a negative COVID-19 test taken within the previous 72 hours, OR be tested on arrival at Funchal airport.

We may ask you to provide evidence of your negative test result at registration.  We strongly advise that you be tested before you travel.

Please read the COVID-19 page.

LATEST NEWS

We have two new excursions for Friday 6th November, as well as the popular catamaran trip.  See https://www.bridge-madeira.com/travel/ for details.

We are extending the Early Bird discount until 28th October.  Please note this discount applies only for bookings made via the online forms.

Here are the measures put in place by the Regional Government, the Portuguese Bridge Federation and the tournament organisers to keep everyone safe during the Madeira International:

*No test certificate, no play: you must produce your negative test result (from your own country or from the airport here) in order to register. You must also sign a declaration of responsibility.
*No one can get onto the island without EITHER a certificate showing a negative result from a test taken within the 72 hours prior to arrival OR a negative test taken at Funchal airport (results in 8-12 hours). While you are waiting for the test result you must quarantine in your hotel room or flat. For that reason, we recommend a test taken before departure.
*Anyone who tests positive at the airport is taken to an isolation hotel.
*Masks are compulsory in shops and other public indoor spaces, except while eating or drinking, but …
*We have bought 50 of the new perspex screens to keep you safe at the table. You will therefore be able to take your mask off during play, but must wear it as soon as you get up from the table.
*Other equipment will be sanitised before re-use.
*The Federation has suspended the requirement for East-West to verify the score by pressing the Accept button – North will simply show the Bridgemate to the East-West pair.
*Hand sanitiser will be available throughout the playing area and shared spaces.
*Numbers have been reduced this year to ensure social distancing.
*Since the weather is good enough to eat and drink in the open air on most days, the risk is much lower than in cooler climates where people congregate indoors.
 
There have been no deaths from Covid-19 in Madeira. Only two people have required hospital treatment. There has been a trickle of cases arriving from elsewhere, but all have been put into isolation as soon as their positive test result is known (8-12 hours).
 
All of the tournament events will take place as in other years, including the social programme (with suitable precautions). We want you to enjoy yourselves, but we also want you to stay safe.

Our friend Inocêncio Araújo, President of the Portuguese Bridge Federation, has kindly brought to our attention this article about the low inflight risk of infection, which you may find reassuring:
