Update! France drops required negative Covid test for vaccinated travelers.

Things are definitely turning more positive for travelers. France has now dropped all Covid test requirements for travelers entering their country from the UK and USA as long as they are “fully vaccinated.” This means boosted too, if the original vaccination was completed more than nine months prior to the intended travel. Many other European countries have dropped restrictions as well. Start planning that amazing vacation while airfares and hotels are still discounted. Europe is back!

UK is No Longer Requiring Covid Testing for Visitors!

Great news out of the UK – February 2022

“Vaccinated travelers can now enter Britain without taking any Covid tests.  Visitors who have had at least two doses of an approved Covid vaccine need only  fill out a passenger locator form before traveling to to Britain and Scotland.  This means the U.K. now has one of the most free-flowing borders in the world — hopefully sending a clear message that we are open for business.”

(Note: Unvaccinated people still must take tests before and after arriving, but no longer need to self-isolate until they get a negative result.)

In addition, London’s Gatwick airport has announced that it plans to reopen the second of its two terminals in March 2022.  Face masks are no longer mandatory in most indoor spaces in England, and those vaccine passports for gaining entry into nightclubs and large events have been scrapped.

Prime Minister Johnson announced this week that he hopes to also lift the mandatory self-isolation for people who test positive by the end of this month as part of a plan to “live long-term with Covid.”
