The complete list of Europe travel restrictions – a key guide to every UK tourist hotspot’s restrictions.

The milder nature of the Omicron variant has resulted in a major reorganization of travel restrictions across Europe.

What do you need to know before traveling abroad now that new rules have been implemented in major tourist hotspots?

For vaccinated travelers, travel restrictions have been eased in a number of European countries.

As the coronavirus pandemic continues, the new guidelines are country-specific, making some destinations more accessible than others.

This is your complete guide to the most recent restrictions in Europe’s most popular tourist destinations.

As a result of vaccination efforts across Europe, travel restrictions have been relaxed as Omicron symptoms have remained mild.

Vaccinated travelers will benefit from new rules that will allow them to travel abroad without having to take any tests.

Less stringent guidelines are thought to be part of a global effort to encourage the unvaccinated population to get their vaccines or face costly testing measures when traveling.

Visitors who have been fully vaccinated can now travel freely within the European Union, though some destinations may require additional paperwork.

Despite imposing stricter restrictions for British tourists over the holidays, France is now allowing British business travelers to visit the country.

Visitors from the EU will be able to enter the country freely if they are fully vaccinated, but residents from England, Scotland, and Wales will need to show proof of employment.

While France’s more relaxed rules are still harsh on non-EU visitors, they are a welcome change after the UK lifted pre-departure testing restrictions earlier this week.

Travel to Italy is permitted for non-EU citizens, though testing requirements remain in place.

Visitors from the United Kingdom must present a negative test result obtained no more than 48 hours before their arrival.

Travelers to Italy must also show proof of vaccination in order to avoid a mandatory five-day quarantine.

A negative test is also required for unvaccinated British citizens at the end of the quarantine period before they are allowed to travel freely.

Proof of vaccination or recovery from the virus will be required to enter bars, restaurants, hotels, gyms, nightclubs, ski lifts, and stadiums while in Italy; a negative test will no longer be accepted.

Travelers who have received their third dose of the coronavirus vaccine and have a digital COVID-19 certificate can visit Portugal two weeks (14 days) after receiving it.

Travelers who have been vaccinated must still present a negative RT-PCR test.
