Travelling by Bus – Get a Visa!

The Automobile Company of Caniço states that due to the set of extraordinary measures, related to the Coronavirus, decreed by the Regional Government of Madeira for the Easter period, all passengers who cross the border between Santa Cruz and Funchal must either have a travel declaration from their employer, or a statement that describes the reason for the trip as well as personal identification.

– Health professionals.

– Workers from health/social support institutions.

– Civil Protection Agents.

– Elements of the security forces and services and ARAE inspectors.

– Armed forces personnel.

– Holders of political offices, magistrates and social partner leaders.

– Journalists and OCS professionals on duty.
