LISBON, April 29 (Reuters) – The land border between Portugal and Spain will reopen for all travel on Saturday after more than three months of restrictions and border checks to reduce the risk of COVID-19 contagion, Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Costa said on Thursday.

Only citizens and residents returning to the country have been allowed to cross, as well as vehicles transporting goods.
