Fully-vaccinated non-Australian and non-resident holidaymakers and business travellers with eligible visas will be able to enter Australia from Monday 21 February. Once in France, fully vaccinated travellers qualify for the Pass Vaccinal to get full access to leisure facilities across ski resorts including Courchevel, Chamonix and Val d’Isere. France is only an option for fully vaccinated skiers, as non-vaccinated travellers require an essential reason to visit the country. For inward travel, all under-18s regardless of their individual vaccination status will continue to be considered as fully vaccinated.

As of Monday 22 November, over 30 countries will be added to the government’s inbound vaccination policy, meaning travellers with approved vaccines from those countries will be on the same footing at those with domestic NHS vaccinations. Passengers arriving from these countries in England from 4am on Sunday 28 November who have been in these countries within the last 10 days will be required to book and pay for a government-approved hotel quarantine facility for 10 days . Previously, Ireland did not require travellers with documentary evidence of full vaccination or recovery from infection to produce negative test results. If you are travelling with a printed PDF proof of vaccination status, it must date from 1 November to ensure the certificate can be scanned successfully. NHS appointment cards from vaccination centres are not intended to be used as proof of vaccination and should not be used to demonstrate vaccine status in this circumstance. These testing rules apply to all travellers, whatever their vaccination status, and regardless of whether they have recovered from coronavirus.

Anyone from the UK who is travelling to another country via transiting in France will only be allowed to stay within the international area of an airport for a maximum of 24 hours. The change follows the imposition of a similar set of restrictions on UK travellers by France on Saturday . However, they will need to quarantine for five days on arrival unless they are visiting a parent or full sibling in Germany and have spent less than 72 hours in a high risk area such as the UK or will spend less than 72 hours in Germany. It will not be permissible to use a lateral flow test until after 4am, Sunday 9 January.

Free NHS lateral flow tests cannot be used for international travel to protect NHS capacity. Lateral flow tests for international travel must be purchased from a private provider. Passengers who have already bought a PCR to use for travel do not need to buy another test as PCRs can still be used.

Those arriving from Red list countries are required to enter managed quarantine for 10 days/11 nights and undergo testing on days two and eight. The change has triggered a surge in international travel bookings by holidaymakers who no longer have to worry about the prospect of testing positive and thus being marooned abroad and forced into quarantine at their own expense. All passengers travelling to France may be asked to take a Covid test on arrival.

According to the Australian government, almost 600,000 people have been allowed entry to the country since this date. Once in resort, everyone aged 6 and over must wear face masks in queues and on ski lifts, and everyone over 16 must provide proof they are fully vaccinated or have recently recovered from Covid to access indoor venues and ski lifts. All children under 12, travelling with an adult, will continue to be treated as fully-vaccinated after 14 February. Travellers arriving in the country by public road, railway, water or air only need follow the protocols in place before the pandemic, such as carrying a valid passport.

The rules on quarantining apply to passengers arriving by air, road, rail or sea. When this is the case, the will be free to choose between taking a rapid antigen test at a public test centre or a rapid antigen test as a self-test. If the rapid antigen test returns a positive result, regardless of whether it was taken at a test centre or as a self-test, the person will have a statutory duty to take a PCR test as soon as possible, and no later than within 24 hours. The result of a negative PCR or antigen test carried out less than 48h hours prior to departure.

Today sees eight countries removed from the UK’s red list of destinations deemed high risk because of their Covid-19 status. This is being viewed as another positive step because most travel insurance policies are invalid in countries where FCDO advice against travel is in place. It will also eliminate any conflicts between the red list and the FCDO advice list.
