Porto Airport Arrivals
The arrivals hall is located on the ground floor of the terminal building. If you are collecting someone from the airport it's recommended to park your car in the car park P0 or P1, and then make your way to the Meeting Point. The meeting point is located in front of the doors where an arriving passenger enters the terminal on the ground floor. If you would like more information on parking, you can visit our parking page here.
Passengers who are arriving at the airport will first have to pass security and collect their luggage before exiting. If you are coming from outside of Europe or a flight from a non-Schengen country, you first have to go through passport control, but this process is usually very quick at with minimal queue required. Passengers from a Schengen country can proceed directly to the baggage reclaim area.
Baggage Reclaim & Customs
In the terminal, there are only 4 baggage carousels. Each carousel has an overhead monitor which indicate the flight number of the baggage on each belt. You can proceed to the correct carousels and collect your luggage.
After you have collected your baggage, it is mandatory that all passengers pass through customs. A certain amount of money and value of goods are permitted by law and these good don't have to be declared, but you must declare anything to customs that exceed the amounts permitted by laws.
Passengers who don't have to declare anything are the following:
- Passengers with no baggage, or with cash or monetary assets that are under €10,000 or equivalent in other currencies.
- Passengers who carry goods for personal use and are not intended for commercial sale.
Passengers must declare items if:
- They carry cash or have monetary assets equal to or above €10,000, or equivalent in other currencies.
- They carry tradable goods in the quantities greater than what is permitted by law.
The most common limits allowed by law are 200 cigarettes or alcohol units if you are travelling from a non-EU country, or 800 cigarettes or alcohol units if you are travelling from an EU country.
If you don't declare items that must be declared, you can get a heavy fine or your goods/money confiscated.
