EUROPE INCREASES TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS vs.
The UK has a two-tier system for international travel: a “red list” of countries and territories and a “rest of the world” list. If you have to follow the “red list” rules, you should do so whether you are fully vaccinated or not.
In order for you to enjoy your stay as much as possible, we recommend that you organize your next trip ahead of time and check all the important services and places. In order to ensure that we all do our bit to travel responsibly and take care of the environment, we have prepared some general points to help you organize your trip when you are allowed to travel again:
Accident and Emergency (A&E) departments in British hospitals deal with serious emergencies. If you need help or medical attention in a non-life-threatening situation, you can call 111 to access the NHS 111 service.
Foreign travelers may have to pay for hospital care. We strongly recommend that you make sure you have an adequate insurance policy before traveling. There will be no charge for coronavirus testing and treatment.
U.S. restrictions for variant return
Five weeks after the establishment of force majeure reasons for travel outside the European area, this regime is being modified to take into account the evolution of the international epidemic and to add a series of emergency situations that constitute force majeure reasons.
In a decree to be published on Friday, March 12, it will no longer be necessary to justify a force majeure reason for travel to or from Australia, South Korea, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Singapore, due to the very wide distribution of the British variant in France and the specific health situation in these countries.
For travel to and from these countries, the other traffic restrictions remain in force: the presentation of a negative PCR test less than 72 hours before departure in particular remains of course necessary. It is particularly recommended to consult the Travel Advice website and it is strongly recommended to limit international travel as much as possible.
Restrictions deal blow to european tourism
Surveys show a drastic decrease in precautions by Britons. Only 31% avoid meeting people from other homes behind closed doors and 12% now work from home. Some analysts are questioning the importance given to the impact of government measures, emphasizing more the effect of the transmission capacity of the different variants.
The elimination of restrictions on the eve of Easter has been greeted with jubilation by the tourism sector. Although travel agencies and the Government recommend to find out about the rules required by other countries, 57% of Britons have booked a trip abroad in the next 12 months. In October 2021 it was 44%.
Scientists quoted by the Financial Times consider it unlikely that there will be new epidemic peaks that will create critical situations in hospital care, but predict that the evolution in the United Kingdom and in other European countries will be towards plateaus in the infection curve, which will maintain constant pressure on health services.
