Destination entry requirements

Eurocamp information

Updated 8th October | 12:30

The FCDO currently approves travel to all Eurocamp destinations, but your destination country may have entry requirements in place, or you may be required to demonstrate your COVID-19 status to access hospitality venues or public spaces. If you have booked a holiday, or are planning one soon, please follow the link for the country you’re travelling to below.

We’re keeping a close eye on requirements in all countries, but rules can change at any time, so we recommend visiting the FCDO website for the latest information on your destination. You can also sign up for FCDO travel advice email alerts, so you automatically receive the latest travel advice updates.


Entry requirements by country


FRANCE |  SPAIN  |  ITALY  |  NETHERLANDS  |  CROATIA  |  GERMANY  |  SWITZERLAND  |  AUSTRIA

FRANCE

The FCDO no longer advises against all but essential travel to France. Fully vaccinated UK travellers do not have to self-isolate on arrival in France. You’ll need to:

  • Complete the sworn statement, found on the French government website.
  • Show proof of your vaccination status (via the NHS app or an NHS letter).
  • Children aged 12 years old or over who are travelling with a fully vaccinated adult are required to present a negative test result (PCR or antigen). However, they do not need to provide an essential reason for travel, nor do they need to self-isolate on arrival.

France will accept travellers who have received the Covishield Astra Zeneca vaccine that was manufactured by the Serum Institute of India.

“Pass Sanitaire” – demonstrating your COVID status in France

From 1st August, anyone aged 18 and over will need this to access a range of leisure facilities (bars, restaurants, museums, cinemas), hospitals, and modes of transport such as long distance train and bus journeys and planes. From 30th September, young people aged between 12 and 17 years will also need to present this pass. You can therefore also expect to have your COVID status checked when you arrive at your parc.

The pass sanitaire can be acquired by fulfilling one of the following three criteria:

  1. Vaccination certificate, illustrating that you are fully vaccinated with a vaccine authorised by the European Medical Authority. This means:
    -  One week after a second dose of Oxford/AstraZeneca, Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna.
    -  28 days after a single dose of Johnson & Johnson.
  2. Negative PCR or antigen test result from the last 48 hours.
  3. A document (dated more than 11 days ago and less than six months ago) proving you have recently recovered from COVID.

The French government has confirmed that anyone visiting France after being vaccinated in the UK will be able to demonstrate that you are fully vaccinated either by presenting your NHS certificate through the NHS App, by downloading or printing the document, or by presenting your NHS letter.

The COVID-19 Green Certification - demonstrating your COVID status in Italy

From the 6th August, a green certificate will be required to access many public spaces in Italy including, but not limited to, indoor seating in bars and restaurants, museums, exhibitions, well-being centres, swimming pools, fairs and large events. It is not required to enter campsites.

The green certificate shows proof via a scannable QR code that the holder has either:

  1. Been vaccinated (anyone who has had their first of two vaccine doses are able to access it from the 15th day after it was administered until the date of the second dose).
  2. Recovered from COVID-19 within the previous six months.
  3. Recently tested negative for the virus.

The EU COVID Certificate will also be accepted by venues where you are required to show a green certificate. The Italian Government has confirmed that the NHS app/certificate will also be accepted by venues for anyone travelling from the UK.
