Domestic Restrictions

Bahrain employs a COVID-19 Alert Level Traffic Light System, which stipulates differing levels of domestic restrictions based on the rolling average COVID-19 positivity rate.

International Tourists

Authorities in Bahrain will modify the country's COVID-19-related international travel restrictions effective Aug. 29. Under the new directives, vaccinated travelers arriving from Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries or countries with which Bahrain has signed a mutual vaccination recognition agreement will not be required to present a negative result from a pre-departure COVID-19 PCR test or quarantine upon arrival. However, these travelers must still take a PCR test upon arrival in Bahrain, as well as on the fifth and 10th days after arrival.
Vaccinated passengers aged six and older with an approved vaccination certificate from a country whose citizens are eligible to obtain an on-arrival visa must present a negative result from a COVID-19 PCR test taken no more than 72 hours before departure. They must also take a PCR test upon arrival, as well as on the fifth and 10th days after arrival. These travelers will not be required to undertake a quarantine period upon arrival.
Passengers who are not fully vaccinated and those without vaccine certificates recognized by Bahrain must present a negative result from a PCR test taken no more than 72 hours before departure, take a PCR test upon arrival, quarantine for 10 days at their residence or at a government-approved quarantine center, and take additional PCR tests on days five and 10 after arrival. From Aug. 29, those under the age of 12 arriving from non-red-listed countries are permitted to quarantine for only five days after arrival.
Many countries remain on Bahrain's red list, which is updated once per month. Nonresident foreign nationals arriving from red-listed countries, including those who have transited through any such locations in the previous 14 days, are prohibited from entering Bahrain, with few exceptions. Generally, only Bahraini citizens and residents will be permitted to enter from these countries.

Testing Information

All arriving travelers above the age of seven must provide a negative result from a PCR test conducted no more than 48 hours before their departure; they must also undergo a PCR test on arrival and the 10th day of their stay. All arrivals must quarantine for at least 10 days at their residence or a government-approved hotel.
Incoming travelers who have not been in a red-listed country within the 14 days before arriving in Bahrain and can prove that they have received a COVID-19 vaccination in the UK, any EU member state, the US, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, or Canada are exempt from quarantine and the need to present a pre-departure PCR test. Nevertheless, such travelers must still undergo a PCR test on arrival and self-quarantine until the test results have been received.
Arrivals who can prove they have been vaccinated or recovered from COVID-19 in Bahrain or a Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) country will be exempt from quarantine measures and a PCR test on arrival. This also applies to those who can prove their vaccination in a country with a reciprocal recognition agreement with Bahrain.

Hotels, Bars & Restaurants

Bahraini authorities will open cafes, restaurants, sports centers, malls, and shops for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals from July 23. Only fully vaccinated people and those under the age of 12 will be allowed in cinemas and indoor sporting events.

International Tourists

On 29 October, the government of Belarus closed the land borders between Belarus and Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Ukraine for all foreign citizens. Arrivals from certain countries affected by coronavirus must self-isolate for 10 days, regardless of whether they show symptoms.
Belavia has announced that, from 11 May, all passengers travelling on Belavia airlines will be required to provide and wear protective face masks on all flights. Face masks must also be worn at Minsk airport during check-in, security checks, and when travelling on airport buses. It is still possible to enter Belarus by land, however, given the current situation, checks at the border may take longer than usual. From midnight on 20 December, the government of Belarus will introduce additional exit controls at its land borders. No one can leave Belarus by a land border unless they have a valid exemption as set out by the Council of Ministers. Belarusian officials are considering introducing an exit tax next year, ostensibly to shore up the country’s budget battered by the coronavirus

Testing Information

Domestic Restrictions

As of Oct. 14, officials in Bermuda have extended a 00:30-05:00 daily curfew for at least a further two weeks until Oct. 29. Authorities imposed the measure in September in response to an increase in COVID-19 cases. All other public health measures have also been extended for the same time period.
Retail and grocery stores are allowed to operate without capacity limitations. Bars, restaurants, and clubs may open for both indoor and outdoor service. Most such establishments require customers to present a SafeKey QR code, indicating that the customer is either fully vaccinated or had received a negative COVID-19 PCR test result within the previous 72-hour period.
Religious services (other than funerals and weddings) are exempt from capacity restrictions but must adhere to social distancing guidelines. Gyms may open so long as masks are worn indoors while not exercising. Personal care businesses may also resume services, including those that require facemasks to be removed. Facemasks are required to be worn in most indoor public settings, except when all individuals present are fully vaccinated. Gatherings are limited to 20 people; religious services are exempted.

International Tourists

As of Oct.15, requirements for travelers entering from international destinations are as follows:
All individuals - including residents - wishing to travel to Bermuda must apply for government authorization by completing an online form one to three days before departure.
All nonresident travelers aged two years and older must produce a negative result from a COVID-19 PCR test taken no more than four days before their arrival in Bermuda. Authorities encourage pre-arrival PCR tests for residents but do not require them.
All fully vaccinated individuals (i.e., those who received the final dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccine more than 14 days before arriving) must take an additional COVID-19 test upon arrival and will receive a red wristband. Individuals will then need to quarantine at their accommodations while awaiting the test result and can only remove their wristband and end quarantine upon receiving a negative result. They must also take a COVID-19 test on days four and 10 of their stay.
All fully vaccinated residents aged two years and older without a pre-arrival negative PCR test result will spend their first four days in quarantine at their accommodations. These individuals will need to wear their wristbands until the receipt of a negative result from their day four COVID-19 test, at which point the quarantine period will end, although an additional test is required on day 10.
All unvaccinated travelers - including residents - must take a test upon arrival and quarantine for 14 days at their accommodations. Travelers may have to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet during their quarantine and will need to take a PCR test on day 14.
Visitors should also have insurance that covers COVID-19 treatment and hospitalization or be responsible for all health and accommodation costs.

Testing Information

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, all visitors from a country classified by the WHO as having community transmission of COVID-19 (including the UK) will need to apply for a Bermuda COVID-19 Travel Authorisation 1 to 3 days before departure.

Travellers are also required to have a pre-departure PCR test. They will need to receive a negative COVID-19 PCR test no more than 5 days before travel. This applies to adults and children aged 10 and up. Those without a negative pre-departure test will not be able to obtain Travel Authorisation.

Domestic Restrictions

Nationwide Restrictions
A system of varying curfews based on regional vaccination and infection rates is in effect. In regions with more than 80 percent of the target population vaccinated and where there are fewer than 150 active COVID-19 cases, curfew hours are 00:01-05:00. In regions that do not meet these criteria, curfew hours are 22:00-05:00. During curfew hours, all persons must remain in their homes. Persons over the age of 75 must stay in their homes at all times; exceptions are in place for limited outings and depending on COVID-19 activity levels in the area.
Individuals diagnosed with COVID-19 must quarantine for 14 days or until they no longer present symptoms, whichever is longer. Anyone who has had at least 15 minutes of face-to-face contact or prolonged exposure (two or more hours in a shared home, hotel, or office) with a person confirmed to have COVID-19 must quarantine for at least 14 days.
All persons must wear facemasks while in public, including at parks, on mass transit vehicles, and in elevators. Health officials recommend medical-grade masks, but improvised or homemade coverings are permitted as long as they cover both the nose and mouth. All persons must also adhere to social distancing standards by keeping at least one meter (three feet) away from others. Exceptions are in place for individuals sharing vehicles and residences or engaged in work or other activities where maintaining such a distance is impossible.
Local MeasuresThe government continues to employ a multiphase quarantine system under which each of Chile's municipalities is designated as being in a specific phase based on local disease activity. In areas under Phase-1 quarantines, all individuals must remain in their homes every day unless they possess a safe-conduct pass. Residents of locations under Phase-2 quarantines must stay in their homes during weekends and holidays unless they have a safe-conduct pass. Some locations have advanced to Phase 3 or 4; in these areas, no quarantine orders are in effect and only nationwide restrictions, such as school closures and capacity limits on business operations, are in place.
Additionally, persons in areas under Phase-1 quarantine orders cannot travel to other regions of the country. Residents of areas under Phase-2 quarantine orders are permitted one trip to another location provided the destination is not under a Phase-1 quarantine order; the traveler must have his/her public health passport during the travel. Those in areas not under quarantine orders may not enter areas that are subject to quarantines.
Authorities could reimpose, extend, further ease, or otherwise amend any restrictions with little-to-no notice depending on disease activity over the coming weeks.

International Tourists

The quarantine rule for vaccinated international travellers will be relaxed from November 1 if a PCR test performed on arrival in the South American country is negative.
Visitors must be fully vaccinated, and vaccines must be recognised in Chile. Proof of a negative PCR test taken 72 hours before travel is still required. A PCR test is carried out again at the airport in Chile. People entering the country must travel by private transport and directly to their specified accommodation and wait there for the result of the PCR test, which can take up to 24 hours.
An electronic form must also be completed up to 48 hours before arrival and tourists entering the country need travel health insurance with minimum cover of $30,000.
As a result of the reopening of the country to non-resident foreigners, the Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport (SCL) in Santiago, the Diego Aracena International Airport (IQQ) in Iquique, and the Andres Sabella Galvez International Airport (ANF) in Antofagasta will reopen to international commercial flights Oct. 1.

Testing Information

Most nonresident foreigners are prohibited from entering Chile without special authorization from the Chilean diplomatic mission in their home country. Permitted arrivals must present negative results from a PCR COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours prior to arrival and then quarantine for 10 days at a transit hotel approved by the Ministry of Health. If a second negative PCR test result is returned by day five of quarantine, travelers may complete the final five days of quarantine at a hotel of their choice or at a private residence.

Domestic Restrictions

As of Sept.8th, authorities in mainland China are maintaining restrictions nationwide due to COVID-19 concerns. Officials have largely curbed an outbreak in the country, and the central government has permitted interprovincial travel to resume. However, local officials continue to impose travel, business, and gathering controls in multiple areas. Local governments in most locations require health checks at airports, train stations, and subway stations, regardless of risk level. Public transport operators in most major cities also require passengers to share health code information before boarding mass transit. Officials also require facemasks on public transport.
The central government implements localized restrictions based on the level of disease activity, with the following risk designations in effect:
Low risk: Locations with no new confirmed COVID-19 cases and no confirmed cases within 14 consecutive days
Medium risk: Areas where COVID-19 activity does not exceed 50 cases within 14 days, or more than 50 cases have occurred but not within 14 days; no clusters reported within two weeks
High risk: Places where new confirmed COVID-19 cases surpass 50, and a cluster has emerged within 14 days
Individuals residing in or with recent travel history to high- and medium-risk areas face travel, movement, and gathering restrictions. Authorities have locked down specific communities in these locations, requiring residents to remain in their homes and undergo multiple rounds of COVID-19 testing. Officials may permit some people to depart affected communities with a negative COVID-19 test result. Officials will continue to erect roadblocks and checkpoints on routes into high- and medium-risk areas in response to further outbreaks; localized transport and business disruptions are almost certain in affected areas. Depending on the severity of COVID-19 activity, authorities could halt public transport, including air travel, and restrict residents from departing cities where outbreaks occur.

International Tourists

The FCDO no longer advises against all but essential travel to China, based on the current assessment of COVID-19 risks
The Chinese authorities have suspended all direct flights from the UK. This measure will be subject to review but no date has been announced. Restrictions on travel to China from other countries, and the necessary requirements, may be different. British nationals travelling to China from a third country should follow the directions on the website of the local Chinese Embassy or consulate for requirements from that country.
A limited number of international flights from other countries are flying into Beijing. Other international passenger flights to Beijing continue to be diverted to 16 designated airports in Chengdu, Changsha, Hefei, Lanzhou, Tianjin, Shijiazhuang, Taiyuan, Hohhot, Jinan, Qingdao, Nanjing, Shenyang, Dalian, Zhengzhou, Xi’an and Wuhan. A small number of international flights are also operating direct between European cities and Shanghai, Guangzhou and Qingdao.
All overseas passenger arrivals are subject to health checks on arrival (likely involving nucleic acid or swab tests).
Those failing health checks may be sent to a designated hospital for treatment.
Health regulations surrounding passengers arriving from overseas are continuously changing.
You should contact the Chinese Embassy before you travel if you have any questions regarding these entry requirements, quarantine rules or the requirements for individual cities.
Following health checks on arrival, you will then need to enter quarantine for at least 14 days. Quarantine is usually spent at either a centralised government hotel (with costs covered by the traveller) or your home. Quarantine requirements can change at short notice and may differ from province to province.
Every city in China has slightly different requirements for foreign travelers, but our travel advisors will tell you the documents you need according to your specific destinations. Here are some items you may be required to provide:
14-day record of travel itinerary
Health inquiry form provided by hotels
Passport and most recent China entry stamps
Nucleic acid test results
Entry and exit certificate
Accommodation registration form for foreign nationals
Certificate of employment

Testing Information

You must provide a negative ‘nucleic acid’ test for COVID 19 and evidence of having taken an ‘IgM’ antibody test. Both of these tests must be taken no more than 48 hours before you travel These rules may be subject to change.
Reports of both your nucleic acid (COVID-19) and IgM (antibody) tests must come from the same service provider. This does not mean the provider must carry out both tests, but that the provider must guarantee both test reports. You should not use the NHS testing service to get a test in order to facilitate your travel to another country. You should arrange to take a private test.
Following health checks on arrival, you will then need to enter quarantine for at least 14 days. At some points of entry children 14 and over will be required to quarantine alone irrespective of whether they test positive or negative for COVID.
You will be separated from your child if one of you tests positive for coronavirus. If this happens to you, you can call +86 (0)10 8529 6600 for 24/7 urgent consular assistance. Non-residents may be charged for their care.

Hotels, Bars & Restaurants

Some are open but need to follow the instruction: Social distance keeping 1m, wearing mask in closed areas. Those entering bars and clubs are asked to present a government-developed app on their phone, which displays an overview of their health. They then have a temperature check, you may be required to fill out a form with their name, phone number and passport number.

Events/Mass Gatherings

Need to follow instructions of 1m social distance.
Government does not encourage gatherings. Indoor sporting and entertainment venues across Beijing have been ordered to close. Cinemas that reopen will be subject to a strict set of rules, including screenings being limited to 30% capacity and the number of movies shown at a venue capped at 50% of its previous volume. Customers' temperatures will be taken, and masks will have to be worn at all times by both cinema goers and staff.China bans Italians temporarily from entry for citizens residing in Italy in possession of Chinese visas and residence permits “for work, private business and family reunification

Domestic Restrictions

Domestic Measures
Most provinces have regressed to the strictest level of restrictions amid increasing COVID-19 case numbers. Under these circumstances, heightened restrictions are placed on nonessential commercial activity and public transport, which may only be used by essential workers. Following this stage, commercial and recreational activities may resume gradually under phases 1 and 2 of recovery. Stricter capacity limits and rules around operating hours are enforced under Phase 1. Under Phase 2, authorities may lift restrictions on intercity passenger transport and further ease restrictions on tourism. Generally, under Phase 3 (one step behind New Normal), all economic and production activities may continue and interprovincial travel may resume.
Local authorities could enforce tighter restrictions on business, public transport, and recreational and group activities. Officials are enforcing some of the strictest measures in Havana, where all public and private transportation traffic is prohibited nightly between 21:00-05:00.

Domestic Restrictions

Starting from 1 September, the restriction on the freedom of movement can be replaced by a COVID-19 test, except in cases where the traveller arrives in Estonia for work or studies from a third country that is not included on the common EU list. In case of a negative test result, the restriction on the freedom of movement still applies for the first seven days. All restrictions are removed after a second test, performed not earlier than 7 days after the first one, also provides a negative result.Availability of services in Estonia is good, with grocery stores, shopping centers, schools, universities, restaurants, and leisure/athletic facilities open. Beginning November 16, mask use will be required in public indoor places, with exceptions for eateries and schools.

International Tourists

In Estonia, people who can prove that they have been vaccinated no longer have to quarantine upon arrival.

If the infection rate is between 25 and 50, but not higher than that of Estonia, the person is not required to self-isolate. If the infection rate is between 25 and 50 and also higher than that of Estonia, mandatory 10-days isolation applies or, alternatively, a double testing procedure is applied. This means that it is required to be tested for COVID-19 upon arrival and to remain in auto-isolation until the test result is ready. In case of a negative test result, a 7-days limited self-isolation applies, i.e. the person can do the necessary activities such as work-related ones, but unnecessary contacts have to be avoided. A second test must be performed not earlier than 7 days after the result of the first test and in case of a negative result, the auto-isolation period expires.

International Tourists

German authorities have updated COVID-19-related international entry restrictions for certain travelers. Effective Aug. 23 Brazil and Uruguay are no longer considered virus variant areas. At the same time Brazil, North Macedonia, Kosovo, Dominica, and Ireland (Border and West regions) have moved to the high-risk category, while Greece (Crete, and South Aegean) will move to this category starting Aug. 24. In addition, Andorra and Spain (the autonomous communities of Asturias, Castile-La Mancha, Catalonia, Valencia, and the Canary Islands) are no longer considered risk areas. Germany classifies countries of concern as “high risk” or “virus variant” areas.
Travellers arriving in Germany who have spent any time in a designated high-risk area in the previous 10 days must self-isolate for 10 days. Such travelers may end quarantine early by presenting a negative test result no earlier than five days after the beginning of self-isolation. Travelers who have either received the full course of a COVID-19 vaccine no less than 14 days before arrival or have recovered from COVID-19 within the previous six months are exempt from quarantine requirements. Different restrictions are in place for individuals in transit, transport workers, and cross-border commuters.
Authorities generally maintain tighter restrictions for arrivals from virus-variant areas. As of Aug. 23, there are however no virus-variant areas.
Generally, Germany prohibits entry by non-vaccinated individuals from outside the EEA, except for those from Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Australia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brunei, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, Jordan, Lebanon, Moldova, New Zealand, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and Ukraine. Fully vaccinated travelers from outside the EEA and associated countries are allowed to enter Germany for nonessential purposes, provided at least 14 days have passed since they received a full dosage of an approved vaccine. Only travelers inoculated with vaccines approved by German authorities are allowed entry.
All travellers over the age of 12 arriving by land must possess evidence of full vaccination against COVID-19, recovery from COVID-19, or a negative result from a PCR or antigen test taken within 72 hours or 48 hours before arrival, respectively; the requirement will not apply to cross-border commuters or travelers transiting Germany. Authorities are likely to conduct random spot checks on arrivals entering by land rather than institute blanket border checks. All arrivals must complete a digital entry registration formbefore entry; exceptions apply for transit passengers and cross-border commuters.

Testing Information

UK and many of the EU countries are now on Germany's 'high-risk' list, thereofre it is mandatory that you have a PCR test and self-isolate for 5 days.

3. take a test after your return to your place of residence in Germany, where you are required to report to the local health office. The test is free of charge if taken within 72 hours of arrival.
Antigen tests are accepted so long as they meet the minimum criteria by the WHO.
From 12-May: New entry regulationVaccinated and convalescent people no longer need a test when entering the country and no longer have to be in quarantine if they do not come from a virus variant area.

Domestic Restrictions

As of Aug. 26, authorities in Guatemala continue to employ a four-tier color-coded system for classifying individual municipalities based on the local level of COVID-19 activity and imposing restrictions accordingly. The government declared a state of calamity due to COVID-19 earlier in August implementing a nationwide 22:00-04:00 curfew; however, Congress voted against the decree, and no nightly curfew is in effect as of Aug. 26. Guatemala's system ranges from the red level, indicating the highest risk, to the green level, which indicates the lowest. As of Aug. 26, 289 of the nation's 340 municipalities are at the red level. The risk level descriptions are as follows:
Red Alert: Public transport is limited to 50 percent capacity. Markets, malls, and restaurants can operate with capacity limitations; hotels must close common areas and cannot hold events. National and recreational parks must close; bars, event venues, gyms, cinemas, and theaters cannot operate. Festivals, fairs, and concerts are not allowed. Municipalities under the Red Alert level include Guatemala City, Mixco, Villa Nueva, San Juan Sacatepequez, San Miguel Petapa, Chinautla, Chimaltenango, Solola, and Retalhuleu.
Orange Alert: Public transport is limited to 50 percent capacity. Markets, malls, and restaurants can operate with capacity limitations. National and recreational parks, gyms, and entertainment businesses can operate with capacity limits. Bars, cinemas, theaters, and event venues must remain closed. Huehuetenango and other municipalities, such as Quetzaltenango, Santa Catarina Ixtahuacan, Totonicapan, and Fraijanes are under the Orange Alert level.
Yellow Alert: Public transport is limited to 75 percent capacity. Most businesses can operate with capacity limitations and social distancing in place. Cinemas and theaters may reopen; bars and event venues must remain closed. San Pedro Soloma and Purulha are among the municipalities under the Yellow Alert level.
Green Level: Most restrictions lifted; no municipalities are under this alert level.
Nationwide, individuals must wear facemasks in public settings. All businesses must follow industry-specific restrictions, which include restrictions on opening times and capacity limits.

International Tourists

As of Oct. 14, authorities in Guatemala have eased travel restrictions for travelers arriving from Brazil, South Africa, and the U.K. While passengers who had been in these countries in the 14 days prior to their travel were previously banned from entering Guatemala unless they were citizens, as of Oct. 14, they can enter the country following the same COVID-19 protocols as other passengers.
All arriving passengers must complete an online Health Pass before arrival. Individuals must meet at least one of the following requirements to be permitted entry:
Travelers aged 10 and over must present a negative result from a COVID-19 PCR or antigen test taken up to 72 hours before travel.
Travelers who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the previous three months must provide proof of treatment confirming both the date of diagnosis and that recovery occurred at least 10 days after being diagnosed.
Travelers who have been administered a COVID-19 vaccine may present proof that they have received two doses, the last of which must have been administered a minimum of two weeks before departure.
Travelers who do not have proof of a negative COVID-19 test result may be permitted entry only if they have proof of having taken a test before travel but that they were not able to receive their results in time for their trip or demonstrate that their travel to Guatemala is urgent. Upon arrival at La Aurora International Airport (GUA), these travelers will be tested at their own expense and must remain in the airport while awaiting results. Guatemalan citizens or residents who do not present the negative test result, as well as those who have COVID-19-related symptoms, will be taken to an isolation center for further screenings. Nonresident foreign nationals under the same circumstances may be denied entry into Guatemala.
The requirements to enter Guatemala through its land borders are the same as those for entry by air.

Testing Information

To be eligible for entry, you must comply with one of the following options:
a. You must provide a negative COVID-19 PCR or antigen test, dated no more than 3 days before the date of your arrival in Guatemala. The 3 days commence from the date and time the test is conducted to the moment you check-in with the airline, or arrival at land border.
b. If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 3 months, you must present a medical certificate from the health clinic where you were treated, that states the date you were diagnosed with COVID-19 (including the copy of the test) and confirmation of your recovery.

Domestic Restrictions

Domestic Measures as of Sept 8th: Authorities are maintaining some domestic countermeasures. All indoor and outdoor gatherings are limited to 200 people. Facemasks should be worn on all public transport, including flights and taxis, as well as in stores and medical facilities. All retail stores should observe capacity limits and sanitation measures. Catering facilities and entertainment venues must close by 23:00. Officials continue to encourage regular cleaning and disinfecting of commonly touched surfaces as a precaution.

International Tourists

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, non-essential travel by British citizens from the UK/other non EU/EEA country to Iceland is only permitted if you:
Are resident in Iceland, or
Can adequately demonstrate you have either been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or previously recovered from COVID-19 infection
International Restrictions: *From within the EU:
If travellers don’t have any vaccination certificate or a certification that proves a previous COVID-19 infection or have a certificate that is not valid, they need to present a negative PCR test certificate against COVID-19. Rapid antigen tests are in this case not considered valid. The test must have been taken within 72 hours before departure. A fine for not presenting a negative PCR-test is at the border is 100.000 ISK.
The result of the test must be pre-recorded. The certificate must be submitted in either Icelandic, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, or English. Certificates in other languages are not considered valid.
Additionally, passengers arriving in Iceland without proof of vaccination or prior infection, must undergo two more PCR tests: one upon arrival, and another one 6 days later. Between the two tests, a quarantine of 5 days is mandatory. People may quarantine at home provided that their accommodation meets certain conditions.
The second testing is done at health centres around Iceland. A bar code is sent to a mobile phone the night before testing. Those people who test negative in the second PCR test are no longer submitted to special precautions. Those who test positive must continue self-isolation.
Testing and quarantine of children
Children born in 2005 or later do not have to be tested on the border. They are exempt from the obligation to present a negative PCR certificate upon arrival. If a child travels with a person required to be quarantined, the child stays with that person and is released from quarantine if the second test from the companion is negative. If the companion is exempt from double screening and quarantine, also the child is exempt. A child travelling alone is neither tested nor needs to present a negative PCR certificate upon arrival.
Children born in or before 2004 need to undergo testing at the border, quarantine for 5 days and then have a second test unless they have a certificate of full vaccination. Children who have not reached the age of 18 are permitted to travel to Iceland with their parents, given the parents are exempt from travel restrictions to Iceland.
A tourist is obliged to pre-register a departure date from Iceland if it is available. If the length of stay is shorter than the required time in quarantine, it will be examined separately, as there is a risk that the person in question will not follow the rules on quarantine.

Testing Information

If you have had a full course of the COVID-19 vaccine the certificate will only be valid for travel to Iceland on or after the 15th day since your second vaccination (or from the single dose of the Janssen / Johnson and Johnson vaccine).
If Border Officials have doubts over your certificate, you will be tested and face quarantine. You may be put in to a managed quarantine facility if infected with a virus strain classed as particularly high risk for contagion or morbidity.
You will be asked to provide proof of vaccination which must contain the specific COVID information Iceland requires.
If you live in England, Iceland will accept the NHS COVID Pass or your NHS letter to demonstrate your COVID-19 vaccination status. If you live in Scotland or Wales, Iceland will accept your respective NHS letter to demonstrate your COVID-19 vaccination status. Your NHS appointment card from vaccination centres is not designed to be used as proof of vaccination and should not be used to demonstrate your vaccine status.
Children born in 2005 or later and travelling with those who are fully vaccinated or exempt from testing and quarantine will also be exempt.
Certificates of previous infection must be a PCR test or antibody test by ELISA blood serum test and meet Iceland’s criteria.
Entry without a certificate of vaccination or previous infection
If you do not have an acceptable certificate of vaccination or of previous infection, and are not a resident of Iceland, there are only a very limited number of essential reasons for which you will be given permission to travel.
When flying into Iceland without a certificate of vaccination or previous infection you must follow these steps: present a negative PCR taken within 72 hours of your time of departure to Iceland (or get a ISK 100,000 fine for residents or a refusal of entry for visitors)
take 2 COVID-19 tests, one on arrival and another 5 to 6 days later, quarantine between tests, until you have the results.

Hotels, Bars & Restaurants

Domestic Restrictions

Israeli authorities have tightened domestic restrictions as of Aug. 19 amid a surge in COVID-19 disease activity nationwide. The "Green Pass" - which demonstrates that an individual is vaccinated, has recovered from, or has tested negative for COVID-19 within the past 72 hours – has been expanded to most sectors and now applies to all individuals aged three and above. Proof of the Green Pass is required to enter conferences, exhibitions, hotels, gyms, swimming pools, event halls and venues, festivals, restaurants and cafes, museums, libraries, tourist attractions, and institutions of higher education. Malls and large stores, however, are not subject to Green Pass restrictions.
Additionally, authorities have reimposed caps on all gatherings. Private gatherings are limited to 50 people indoors and 100 outdoors, while gatherings at event venues are capped at 400 people indoors and 500 outdoors. Mass events are allowed to accommodate 1,000 people indoors and 5,000 outdoors. Facemasks remain mandatory in all indoor spaces and at outdoor events with more than 100 people.

International Tourists

*Entry and borders: As of 31 August 2021, the UK has been added to Israel’s list of COVID-19 “at risk” countries. See the Ministry of Health website for restrictions and exemptions.
Israeli officials have amended international travel restrictions as of Aug. 17, prohibiting citizens from traveling to Brazil, Bulgaria, Georgia, Mexico, Spain, and Turkey until further notice due to concerns over increased COVID-19 activity in those countries. Only individuals who have obtained special permission from authorities can travel to these locations; officials only grant permission in exceptional cases, such as for humanitarian purposes. Israelis can take connecting flights through the affected countries, provided the layover is less than 12 hours. All Israelis, including those who have been inoculated against COVID-19, returning from these locations may be subject to a fine and must self-isolate for at least seven days under the Health Ministry's quarantine requirements.
Individuals arriving from low-risk countries (Australia, Austria, China, Czech Republic, Hong Kong, Hungary, Moldova, New Zealand, Singapore, and Taiwan), including those inoculated against COVID-19, must self-isolate for up to 24 hours upon arrival in Israel or until they receive a negative COVID-19 test result. Arrivals from all other countries have to quarantine for seven days contingent upon receiving a negative result from a COVID-19 test taken on the seventh day of self-isolation.
All persons traveling to Israel must produce a negative result from a COVID-19 PCR test taken no more than 72 hours before departure. Moreover, all incoming international travelers must undergo a second COVID-19 test upon arrival at their own expense; this test will occur at the border crossing or a government-designated quarantine facility. Violations may be punishable by fines.
Individual tourists remain barred from entering Israel due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19 variants. Currently, only limited groups of vaccinated foreign tourists can enter Israel as part of organized tours. Arriving tourists must take a serological test to prove the existence of COVID-19 antibodies; the presence of antibodies from such tests allows international travelers to forgo the quarantine requirement. The serological test requirement remains in effect until further notice. Israel is negotiating with other countries regarding mutual recognition of vaccination certificates to remove the need for serological tests.
Foreigners who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have recovered from the disease and have first-degree relatives in Israel are permitted to enter the country. These individuals must submit an entry request to Israel's Population and Immigration Authority and receive approval before their flight; they must also show proof of vaccination or recovery and proof of relation to an Israeli citizen or resident. Authorities will allow foreigners who have not been vaccinated against or have not recovered from COVID-19 to enter in exceptional circumstances, such as marriage to an Israeli citizen. Foreigners must have valid health insurance that covers treatment for COVID-19 for the duration of their visit.

Testing Information

All passengers who stayed in Israel for over 72 hours must present a negative COVID-19 PCR test, or a valid Israeli vaccination or recovery certificate to leave Israel. All travellers must also complete an online outbound passenger statement form.
From 30 July, travel to the UK for British nationals who also hold Israeli passports or residence permits, will be prohibited. All travel by Israeli citizens or residents to a destination with the highest COVID-19 risk, including the UK, is banned.
All travellers of all ages arriving in Israel, including those who have been vaccinated or recovered, must take a COVID-19 (PCR) tests on arrival in Israel, at their own expense. You can make the payment after you submit the entry statement form prior to traveling to Israel. Payment in advance is at a reduced price. Only PCR tests are admissible.
Quarantine requirements
All passengers who have visited the UK, Brazil, South Africa, India, Mexico, Russia, Argentina, Belarus, Uzbekistan, Spain, Kyrgyzstan, Georgia, Cyprus, or Turkey within 14 days of arrival in Israel must enter isolation for a minimum of 14 days.

Hotels, Bars & Restaurants

The Green Pass applies to establishments and facilities including gyms, hotels, restaurants, bars, conference venues, tourist sites, and places of worship. Shops, malls, swimming pools, museums, and libraries are not subject to Green Pass restrictions. Facemasks must be worn indoors but are not required outdoors. Most other domestic COVID-19 restrictions, such as capacity limits and social distancing requirements, have been lifted.

Events/Mass Gatherings

Effective July 29 until Aug. 8, the “Green Pass” - which demonstrates that an individual has been vaccinated, recovered from the disease, or tested negative for COVID-19 within the past 72 hours – will be required to enter venues or participate in events with 100 or more people, whether indoors or outdoors. Individuals under the age of 12 are exempt from the Green Pass system.

Domestic Restrictions

Japanese officials will expand a state of emergency declaration to Aichi, Gifu, Hiroshima, Hokkaido, Mie, Miyagi, Okayama, and Shiga prefectures Aug. 27-Sept. 12 due to COVID-19 activity. The order remains in effect for Tokyo, Chiba, Fukuoka, Gunma, Hyogo, Ibaraki, Kanagawa, Kyoto, Okinawa, Osaka, Saitama, Shizuoka, and Tochigi prefectures during the same period. In areas under the state of emergency, restaurants and bars cannot serve alcohol and must close by 20:00. Local officials can also request that residents in the designated areas refrain from nonessential outings. Authorities can close or restrict operating hours of businesses - typically, nonessential entertainment businesses and retail. Venues can only accommodate 50 percent of capacity, up to 5,000 people. Officials have also requested that companies in affected prefectures curb employee travel by 70 percent. Businesses violating the rules may face fines of up to JPY 300,000. Local governments may also reduce the frequency or operating hours of mass transit.
Authorities have also expanded so-called quasi-emergency measures to Kochi, Miyazaki, Nagasaki, and Saga prefectures through Sept. 12. Quasi-emergency restrictions will also continue in Ehime, Fukushima, Ishikawa, Kagawa, Kumamoto, Shiga, Toyama, and Yamanashi prefectures. Under quasi-states of emergency, governors can implement various restrictions in specific municipalities, including limits on capacity and operating hours. The central government has requested that restaurants and bars in prefectures under quasi-emergency measures halt alcohol sales. Violations of government orders carry a fine of up to JPY 200,000.
In other areas of Japan, authorities continue to limit attendance at most sports and entertainment venues to a maximum of 10,000 people. Companies must adhere to social distancing protocols. Some organizations have reduced capacity at facilities, established temperature checks, or encouraged telecommuting for employees. Sporadic rail and flight disruptions remain possible nationwide amid generally reduced demand, especially on routes to and from areas under state of emergency orders. Physical distancing requirements are in place on most long-distance transport services.

International Tourists

The Japanese government is ending the coronavirus state of emergency on Sunday for Tokyo and eight other prefectures. Only Okinawa Prefecture will remain under the measure through July 11.

Domestic Restrictions

South Korean officials have extended restrictions nationwide through at least Oct. 31 due to ongoing COVID-19 activity. While Greater Seoul will remain under the highest Level-4 controls, the rest of the country will remain under Level-3 curbs. A nationwide ban on gatherings involving more than four unvaccinated people continues, except for permitted events. However, effective Oct. 18, officials will allow private gatherings of up to ten people in locations other than Greater Seoul, provided six of the participants are fully vaccinated. Authorities are increasing the capacity limit for indoor sporting, religious, and wedding events; such venues may operate at 20 percent capacity of vaccinated attendees or host an approved number of people with up to 20 percent unvaccinated attendees. Provincial and city governments can adjust curbs based on local COVID-19 activity.
Officials will maintain Level-4 controls, the highest level, in Greater Seoul, including Incheon and Gyeonggi Province. Effective Oct. 18, authorities will increase the limit for each gathering after 18:00 to eight people, provided four group members are fully vaccinated. The limit for gatherings before 18:00 remains six people, provided two participants are fully vaccinated.
In most parts of the country, individuals who have received at least one vaccine do not need to wear a facemask, except on public transportation, indoor public areas, and large gatherings. Employers with more than 50 workers must facilitate staggered commuting and lunchtimes; officials recommend up to 20 percent of staff telecommute. Most nonessential and entertainment businesses may operate until 22:00 daily, provided they adhere to certain protocols, including capacity limits. The government will allow 24-hour operation of approved venues like cafes, restaurants, and reading rooms from Oct. 18. High-risk businesses nationwide must participate in a contact-tracing system requiring patrons to produce a quick response (QR) code for scanning before entering designated establishments. Companies can manually record contact information if necessary. The government will close non-compliant businesses for 10 days after a first infraction. Fines are also possible. Several major industrial plants and offices have temporarily closed after employees tested positive for COVID-19. Commercial disruptions are possible at any establishment that violates COVID-19-related rules or where outbreaks occur.

International Tourists

"Korean Air and Asiana are running direct flights from London to Seoul. Restrictions based on nationality and visa type have been lifted for regularly scheduled flights, but remain in place for some specially chartered flights.Airline and ticket booking websites do not typically highlight in the booking process which flights have nationality or visa restrictions. You should contact the airline before booking to confirm that you will be eligible to take your desired flight based on your nationality and visa. Passengers who are ineligible to take a flight may be refused check-in even if they have purchased a ticket.
Transiting in South Korea
All transit passengers receive a temperature check on arrival in Korea. Symptomatic individuals will be subject to a COVID-19 test and hospitalisation if found positive. Passengers who do not show symptoms and/or test negative may continue their journey. Transit passengers at Seoul Incheon Airport require a ticket/boarding pass for their onward flight to their final destination. They should confirm with the airline(s) before departure that their bags have been checked through to their final destination (as transit passengers are not able to collect and re-check in baggage on arrival in Incheon Airport).
Transit hotels are available in both Terminals 1 and 2 at Incheon Airport.
As of 1 July, if you are fully vaccinated and travelling for business, academic or humanitarian purposes, you are eligible to receive a quarantine exemption even if you received your vaccination outside South Korea.

The Embassy of the Republic of Korea in London will publish details on how to apply in due course, including details on what evidence of vaccination status will be accepted from the UK
To be eligible, you will need to have been fully vaccinated two weeks before entering Korea, and to have received a vaccine authorised for emergency use by the WHO (all vaccines in use in the UK have been authorised by the WHO)
If you were vaccinated outside the UK, you will need to apply through the Korean Embassy in the country where you received your vaccinationExemptions will not be available if you are travelling from South Africa, Malawi, Botswana, Mozambique, Tanzania, Eswatini, Zimbabwe, Bangladesh, Equatorial Guinea, Brazil, Suriname, Paraguay or Chile Exemptions will be available for unvaccinated children under age 6 who are travelling with their parents, but not for unvaccinated children aged 6-18

Testing Information

All foreign nationals arriving in South Korea are required to provide a negative PCR test declaration, issued within 72 hours of departure. More details can be found on the Embassy of the Republic of Korea in London website.
All arrivals – regardless of nationality and length of stay – are also required to be tested for coronavirus (COVID-19) after entering South Korea. Arrivals will be taken for testing and must remain at the testing facility until a negative result has been secured.
Travellers with a Korean government-approved official vaccination certificate showing that they have received two vaccine doses in South Korea more than 14 days before their departure from the country may be exempted from compulsory quarantine on their return. Those exempted need to comply with active health monitoring through an app, undertake two compulsory COVID tests and limit some activities for a 14 day period. Arrivals from South Africa and Brazil are not eligible for this exemption.
Korean nationals and long-term foreign visitors with an Alien Registration Card and Korean residence, but without an official Korean government-approved vaccination certificate, may self-quarantine at home for 14 days. All other foreign short-term travellers without a Korean government-approved vaccination certificate must quarantine at a government-designated facility for 14 days. Individuals are required to pay a daily charge of 120,000KRW (approximately £81) while in government quarantine facilities. South Korea plans to recognise vaccination certificates from other countries from 1 July as discussed above.

Hotels, Bars & Restaurants

Restaurants, coffee shops, bars and gyms are open. However, Korea has a QR code-based registration system for patrons at restaurants, clubs, and other entertainment facilities across the country that are considered high risk for COVID-19. This system enables the government to conduct contact tracing as COVID cases are identified.

Events/Mass Gatherings

Social gatherings are restricted depending on the provinces. Please check locally as restrictions will vary by province

Domestic Restrictions

As of Oct. 18, Mexican authorities have updated the government's COVID-19 transmission risk assessments for each of the country's states. The changes denote a continued nationwide trend of lowered viral spread following a peak in cases in late August; the majority of states are now at the lowest risk level. Additionally, US authorities have announced that the border with Mexico will reopen Nov. 8 to nonessential travel to the US; travelers must be fully vaccinated, however.
As part of the nationwide epidemiological stoplight system, each state, as well as Mexico City, is assigned one of four color-coded levels based on local COVID-19 transmission, with restrictions being imposed accordingly. These levels range from green to red in order of increasing COVID-19 risk. Following the most recent risk level updated, which will remain in effect through Oct. 31, most states fall under the green level, with 11 being at yellow and one at the orange level; no state is currently at the red level. The recommended restrictions associated with each risk level and the states assigned to each one are as follows:
Green Level: Authorities recommend no capacity limits for businesses and social activities, but still require masks to be worn on all public transportation. Mexico City, Baja California Sur, Sonora, Chiapas, Durango, Nayarit, Guerrero, Sinaloa, Oaxaca, San Luis Potosi, Veracruz, Hidalgo, Tlaxcala, Michoacan, Tamaulipas, Nuevo Leon, Quintana Roo, Mexico State, Puebla, and Zacatecas are at the green level.
Yellow Level: Authorities allow most businesses and social activities to occur with capacity limits of up to 75 percent. The use of protective masks is obligatory in all enclosed public spaces, including when using public transportation. Aguascalientes, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Colima, Guanajuato, Queretaro, Morelos, Tabasco, Campeche, Yucatan, and Jalisco are the states at the yellow level.
Orange Level: Authorities allow most businesses and social activities to occur with capacity limits of up to 50 percent. Protective masks are required in all public spaces. Baja California is at the orange level.
Red Level: Residents are encouraged to remain inside their homes, except to perform essential tasks. Officials allow businesses and social activities to occur with capacity limits set at their discretion. Protective masks are required in all public spaces. No states are currently at the red level.
The capacity limits and closures are a general guide. Local officials are permitted to enforce additional restrictions or refrain from imposing recommended measures despite the guidance associated with a particular color level.

International Tourists

The country's northern border remains closed to nonessential travel to the US through Nov. 8, at which point fully vaccinated travelers will be able to cross for nonessential reasons.
