If you’re planning an Easter break, why not keep things simple by visiting a country with no COVID travel restrictions.
These are the European countries that have waved goodbye to their travel rules this Spring:
Iceland dropped all of its COVID-19 restrictions in February, meaning travel here is as simple as in pre-pandemic times.
No COVID-19 prevention measures are in place at the border, regardless of whether individuals are vaccinated or unvaccinated. This means there’s no need to carry a vaccination certificate or provide a negative covid test when you visit Iceland. The country has also scrapped covid restrictions within its borders too. Masks are no longer mandatory and social distancing has been abolished.
Highlighting their wish for the country to “return to normal everyday life,” Norway’s government have dropped face mask laws, scrapped the need to isolate and removed the one metre social distancing requirement.
Tourists are no longer required to provide proof of a negative test or their vaccination status when entering the country.
Testing requirements for visitors to Svalbard were also scrapped at the beginning of March, meaning you no longer have to test negative to visit the remote Norwegian archipelago.
The Emerald Isle removed remaining rules on Sunday 6th March. The moves means travellers will no longer have to fill in a passenger locator form, show proof of vaccination or recovery, or provide a negative covid test.
The island nation has also scrapped the requirement to wear face mask indoors, although people with COVID-19 symptoms are still asked to self-isolate.
There are no post-arrival testing or quarantine requirements for travellers to Ireland.
