Quarantine or no quarantine – Confirmed countries
The government has now released a list of 59 ‘safe’ countries that you can visit without having to quarantine on return
I have compiled a list of the most popular tourist destinations from the list and checked if they will allow UK visitors and if we would need to quarantine on arrival.
Details are based on current FCO guidelines and can change rapidly and there will be various changes as the UK’s quarantine restrictions are lifted on 10th July. For up to date details check the governments FCO website for each country.
Only travel to countries without severe restrictions in place and always have accommodation confirmed in writing before travelling. Ensure you check entry requirements and fill out any online forms needed in plenty of time. Of course if you have any symptoms at all do not travel and ensure when you get to your destination that you adhere to their social distancing rules as all countries still have this in place.
Remember – If the FCO still has Travel Advice warning against all but essential travel to a country and you go there, your travel insurance will be invalid.
There are health screening procedures on arrival and if necessary Covid19 test which if asked to take you pay for ($100). You will have to quarantine if you fail the test.
You need a negative Covid19 test certificate no older than 4days – Or take a Covid test on arrival (190 euros per person) – Or quarantine for 14 days
There is currently a mandatory 14 day quarantine for UK visitors
No quarantine although you will need a negative Covid19 certificate
Currently 14day quarantine in a government facility – this is due to change when flights begin again

14 day quarantine currently in place but should be removed on 10th July as a reciprocal agreement with the UK
No quarantine measures for UK visitors
UK visitors not allowed until 15th July at the earliest. Quarantine should be waived but there will be health screening on arrival
No quarantine if you pass rapid Covid19 test that you take on arrival

Spain has been taken off the exempt list as of 26th July to a spike in Covid19 cases.
The borders are currently closed – this could change soon though
International visitors currently banned from entry – except in very limited circumstances (not tourism)
No Quarantine but you have to undergo health screening at the airport and if you show symptoms then a full Covid test.

You will see that the U.S is not on the list and there are no countries from South America, the Middle East, South Asia or Africa (apart from Reunion)
