If you’re a fully-vaccinated Brit, there are a range of holidays abroad that don’t require Covid tests. Spain, Portugal, Greece and Germany welcome double-jabbed Brits without any testing requirements. After the UK removed its Covid travel restrictions, double-jabbed Brits can travel freely in these countries without any restrictions. Those wishing to travel to any of these countries should still fill in a passenger locator form. Other options for Covid-free holidays include Costa Rica and Mexico.
Proof of recovery is accepted for holidays without a Covid test
The German government is now accepting proof of recovery from the COVID vaccine in some areas. Although not legally required, wearing a medical-grade mask is still required in certain areas. For example, it is mandatory to wear a mask when shopping in shops or traveling by public transport. Also, for those who do not have a Covid test, proof of recovery can be in the form of a Covid Status Pass or the NHS Covid Pass. It is also acceptable to present the COVIDCert NI app in digital form. It must be valid after 1 November 2020. However, additional local rules may apply.
If you have recently undergone a Covid vaccination and have a positive Covid test, you can use your NHS Covid Pass as proof of recovery for certain countries. This is available through the NHS App. You will need to access the ‘Travel’ section, which contains a series of QR codes. Look for the final one that says you’ve recovered from COVID-19. Then, print this out and keep it with your vaccination records.
Travelers must be medically supervised for a Covid test
The regulations on whether a traveler must be medically supervised for a COVID test vary from country to country. Most require a negative COVID-19 test for travelers to be permitted to leave the quarantine. A few countries may offer special lodging for those who have to stay in quarantine for several days. A positive COVID test will result in a traveler’s quarantine being extended to several weeks.
CDC guidelines recommend getting a COVID test within three days of travel and within three to five days after flying. This is because some countries do not require the test to be administered on the same day. However, most countries do allow for same-day testing. The test is important for travelers for several reasons. It may be necessary to get medical supervision if you have traveled to a country with a high rate of Covid infection.
Testing sites in Spain
It is important for citizens of Spain to have a negative Coronavirus test before traveling abroad, even if they do not plan to travel to another country. The government has provided several test sites for Spanish citizens and most will accept these tests up to 72 hours prior to departure. They must also take a Coronavirus test once they reach their destination country. Although free Coronavirus tests are available in Spain, these are not acceptable for travel purposes. In Spain, you can book an appointment at an airport terminal, drive-through testing sites, or get a COVID test kit through the mail.
Travelers from the U.S. must also show a positive recovery certificate or a negative diagnostic test result. These documents must be obtained 72 hours before departure. Minors under 12 years old do not need a recovery certificate or a negative COVID test. However, if you have a history of Covid, it is still recommended that you get vaccinated before traveling to Spain. In addition, you should wear a face mask while in Spain.
Testing in Portugal
The CDC has approved at-home COVID tests for entry to the U.S., but a number of pharmacies in Portugal also offer COVID test services. These test centers can be used for a walk-in price of 25 to 50 euros. However, in case you have an infection from a previous trip to Portugal or you don’t know if you have been infected, you should book a rapid test as soon as possible. Afterward, you can self-isolate until you know your results.
The European Union has already implemented new measures to combat the COVID virus, and Portugal has done the same. As the westernmost nation on the European continent, Portugal took the lead and implemented strict border controls and lockdowns. This was done in an effort to limit the disease’s spread in the country. It also introduced stricter rules for preventing the transmission of the disease to new people. Despite the new restrictions, Portugal is still the most western country in mainland Europe.
Testing in Tunisia
You should be aware that the health authorities in Tunisia do not require you to have a COVID test, unless you have been completely vaccinated. You can travel to Tunisia without the test if you are aged 18 and over. If you have not yet received a vaccination, you will need to show proof of a negative rapid lateral flow test or PCR. This proof must be in the form of a QR code and the date of the test. If you are under the age of 17, you need not worry about any specific requirements, but you should have a positive test from the UK. The only exception to this rule is for travellers who have contracted COVID-19 in the last year.
The results of these tests are not representative of the overall situation in Tunisia, as there is a large difference in population density and testing capacity in different regions. In Tunisia, the disease is most prevalent in Sfax, which is the second largest city in the country, and hosts 9% of the total population. On March 29th, there were fourteen cases of Covid-19 in Sfax, resulting in a mortality rate of 21%. By contrast, mortality rates in Sousse are only 4%.
