Full list of Covid restrictions and travel rules for holiday hotspots including Spain, Greece and France

BRITS will be eager to get away this month, with the half term holidays just around the corner.

And while the UK has eased most of their own travel restrictions, other countries have rules in place.

Currently, anyone returning to the UK only needs to have a Covid test taken after they arrive.

From February 11, this will be lifted and all vaccinated arrivals only need to fill in a Passenger Locator Form.

We've rounded up the rest of the travel rules you need to be aware of at some of the popular holiday hotspots.


Brits must be fully vaccinated and cannot now use a negative Covid test or proof of recovery to enter.

Anyone aged 12 and over who received their second dose more than nine months ago must have had a third booster jab to be allowed in.

The booster must have been given more than 14 days before travelling.

Many of the holiday islands have the highest Covid restrictions in place, but the country is to lift mandatory face masks in outdoor areas from next week.
