Before living Germany
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, foreign candidates arriving in Portugal from Germany and Austria must provide evidence of a negative PCR test (taken max. 72 hours before departure) that is requested by the airline before departure. To avoid delays at the airport, make sure that the negative result shows clearly ´PCR ´as the type of test.
When arriving by air, travelers must also fill out an electronic travel registration (Passenger Locator Card) that you can find at the following link

If you have any doubts or need help with your travel documentation, follow this link to more useful information. To follow the situation in Portugal head over this link.
Upon arrival: free Covid-19 rapid test
As soon as you land in Lisbon, a Welcome Support Team will be waiting for you. They bring International Candidates to a modern office of your future work in Lisbon to collect the equipment for the home office (PC and accessories) and to carry out a free Covid-19 rapid test by a doctor.
In order to guarantee the safety of all employees in all Portugal branches as well as in Lisbon company apartments, every international newcomer is tested for Covid-19. The test is carried out by a doctor with a small blood sample (a tiny prick on the finger). If the test is negative, you move directly into your company apartment. If the test is positive, the employee is taken to a separate company apartment, where he must spend a 14-day quarantine. Please note that positive cases have been rare, however, in that situation, the Welcome Support Team will explain all relevant aspects to the employee, such as online ordering of food. If necessary, medical support will of course also be arranged. After 14 days, the employee is allowed to enter Lisbon offices and standard company apartment to relocate.
As we like to ensure the best Work and Travel Lissabon experience, the Covid-19 test is essential. It serves to protect existing employees and newcomers. Even if it is mandatory for entering our branches or standard company apartment, every future employee also has the right to refuse the test or to go to the “quarantine apartment”. If that happens, the employee would have to organize private accommodation at own expense to spend the mandatory quarantine. In addition, he could not enter a teleperformance floor for these 2 weeks.
Join a Covid-free office
We are pleased to announce that our big partner in Lisbon is the first company in Digital Integrated Business Services to receive the COVID Clean certificate from the international institute EIC / VERYCER for their eleven office buildings in Portugal.
As part of this certification, the global leader in customer experience management has implemented several measures to contain and combat the Covid-19 virus spread that were evaluated by an independent body. After the external auditory, the company received the COVID Clean Certificate, that offers additional security for the entire community and our international candidates.
The certificate highlights several points like:
– Top Management Leadership to define a clear and actionable plan, ensuring continuous communication with all employees.
– Vision: Timely creation of solutions such as the TP Cloud Campus, in order to be able to switch quickly to the home office and to ensure business continuity
– Stability and retention of employees
– Responsiveness and investment for the implementation of an emergency plan
When you sign the employment contract, you are automatically covered by social and pension insurance in Portugal. With this basic insurance you have access to the Portuguese public health system. From the time you sign your employment contract, you also have the attractive option of free private health insurance, which is currently offered by Allianz.
To avoid unnecessary journeys, since February 2021 you can make online appointments with a company doctor for consultations. This option is also available during the training. If you have any health concerns or emergency at the office, you can visit the company doctor immediately. In case that you feel sick or have been in contact with someone who feels sick, contact the company helpline. Alternatively, you can call the official Portuguese emergency number.
