In addition to the UK government requirements for international travel set out in the traffic light system, your destination country may also have entry requirements in place that may affect you. 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 arrival restrictions in all countries, but rules can change at any time, so we recommend visiting the FCDO website for the latest information on your destination.

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 21st July, people attending spaces in France with over 50 people will be asked to demonstrate their COVID-19 status through the “pass sanitaire”. 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. 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 FCDO no longer advises against all but essential travel to Italy. Fully vaccinated UK travellers do not have to self-isolate on arrival in Italy. You’ll need to:

  • Present either proof that you’re fully vaccinated (via the NHS app or an NHS letter), or a negative PCR test result issued within 48 hours of arriving in Italy. Children under 6 and accompanied by a parent/guardian providing any of the above are exempt from the requirement to present a negative test result.
  • Complete a Digital Passenger Locator form. This will generate a QR code, which should be presented to your travel provider and Border Police if requested. A paper form can be completed if you do not have an electronic device
  • Call a COVID-19 helpline for the region you're travelling to within 48 hrs of arrival to inform of your visit.
  • In addition to the above measures, all travellers to Italy should consult the Italian Government’s online questionnaire (in English) for more advice on entry requirements and travel to Italy.

Please note that currently Italy will not accept travellers who have received the Covishield Astra Zeneca vaccine that was manufactured by the Serum Institute of India.

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.
