Fewer obstacles to foreign travel, an easier ride for tourists

The government have finally relaxed the rules for re-entry into the UK which had been complicating arrangements for British holidaymakers returning home this summer from countries like Spain and Portugal.

Simpler rules apply which are now free of cost for almost everyone and much easier to comply with.

The UK moved to scale back all Coronavirus travel restrictions from 18th March 2022. Passenger locator forms and the requirement for vaccinated travellers to take a test are no longer necessary and several travel companies, including British Airways, have abandoned the requirement for passengers to wear a mask for the duration of their journey (please check with your travel provider).

For adults travelling to Spain and Portugal, only proof of double vaccination (with booster) is required at the border. These are very positive steps towards facilitating overseas travel at last!

This minimises the amount of paperwork and expense required for people travelling to Spain and Portugal.

N.B. For those travelling with children, we would advise you to keep an eye on the rules such as for children aged between 12 – 15 who are not double-vaccinated.

This rebalancing of our protocols for foreign travel has been long awaited and, for many of us, the government’s heavy-handed approach to international travel has held us back from enjoying the benefits of heading off to warmer and drier climates and different cultures, with all the attractions of diverse food, landscapes, architecture and lifestyle.

Our reservations team will be more than happy to discuss the current restrictions if you have any concerns, as well as any travel plans you would like to make.
