An expert panel in the UK has lowered the alert level in the COVID-19 pandemic from the highest level 5 to level 4, as announced by the Ministry of Health on February 25, 2021, who stated that the danger of a collapse in the health system within weeks is no longer anticipated in view of steadily falling indicators. Lockdown measures in the country remain unchanged despite a lower warning level. In the UK, public life has been largely at a standstill since the beginning of January. On February 22, 2021 for the largest part of the country, England, Prime Minister Boris Johnson presented a roadmap for the gradual lifting of the measures. Schools are to reopen there on March 8, 2021. The government wants to lift all lockdown measures by June 21, 2021. The following rules apply to England: People are not allowed to leave the house. Meetings with people who do not belong to one's own household are generally prohibited, with a few exceptions. This rule applies indoors as well as outdoors. All schools, universities and non-essential businesses are closed. Travel within the country and abroad is prohibited, except for legal reasons. Leaving the house without a legal reason is punishable (200 GBP, in case of repetition doubled up to 6,400 GBP). Legitimate reasons to leave the house that could justify a trip include work, care or even shared custody. Generally, there is a requirement to wear mouth to nose protection on public transport, cabs, supermarkets. The highest lockdown warning level is now valid in London and parts of the regions South East and East of England as well as the whole of Wales. A lockdown is in place in Scotland, with significant restrictions on movement that exceed the level of recommendations and have the force of law. Entry into Scotland is now only permitted in urgent cases. Isle of Man has ended its second lockdown. Mask wearing is no longer required.

Non-essential tourist travel to Switzerland is warned against due to high infection rates. The entry ban and flight ban for persons from the UK has been lifted on February 8, 2021, however the UK and South Africa will be considered risk countries with entry restrictions. As of February 8, 2021 travelers entering Switzerland by air will only be able to board the plane if they can present the airline with a negative result of a molecular biology test for SARS-CoV-2 (PCR test) carried out within the last 72 hours.​ Entry from EU Member States and Schengen associated countries is allowed without restrictions, unless a country or region is defined as COVID-19 risk area. The Federal Office of Public Health keeps a list of countries concerned (https://www.bag.admin.ch/bag/en/home/krankheiten/ausbrueche-epidemien-pandemien/aktuelle-ausbrueche-epidemien/novel-cov/empfehlungen-fuer-reisende/quarantaene-einreisende.html#1918240392) that is updated regularly.​ As of January 12, 2021, Ireland is new on this list of countries with an increased risk of infection. Transit for travelers from high-risk countries is possible by direct route, provided that entry into the next transit or destination country is assured. Exceptions currently apply to travelers from Great Britain and South Africa. It is possible to stopover at Swiss airports, as long as you do not leave the transit zone of the airport, and you can prove that you can continue your journey to your destination country.

​On arrival, travelers arriving in Switzerland from a country or region with a high risk of infection must present a valid proof of a negative PCR test result that is no more than 72 hours old. They then have to quarantine for ten days; they can leave quarantine after seven days if they again test negative (antigen rapid test or PCR test). All travelers arriving by air even from a country that is not considered high risk must be able to show a negative PCR test result before boarding the plane.​ Without a negative PCR test, airlines will no longer be permitted to allow passengers to board the plane from February 8, 2021. Children under age 12 are not subject to the testing requirement.​ Currently, a negative test result neither lifts the quarantine obligation nor shortens the duration of the quarantine. As of February 8, 2021, the quarantine for travelers from risk areas can be shortened with the approval of the cantonal health authority by a negative PCR test as of the seventh quarantine day.

The rapid antigen test will be performed at a dedicated space in the baggage area of the airport and costs €10. You will have to wait approximately 15-20 minutes for your test result. If you test positive for COVID-19, a member of the health directorate will inform you about the next steps. On October 13, 2020, EU Member States passed a Council Recommendation regarding a coordinated approach to restrictions on movement in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to reduce the spread of the coronavirus outbreak, the 27 EU Member States have taken several measures, some of which have affected the right of citizens to move freely within the European Union (e.g. such as the requirement to undergo quarantine or coronavirus testing). The Recommendation identifies the following four key areas where Member States will coordinate their efforts: i) Member States shall take into account the notification rate, the test positivity rate and the testing rate when considering restriction measures as a response to the prevention of the coronavirus spread. ii) The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control shall publish a map of all EU Member States including Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland reflecting the risk levels within the regions in Europe by way of using a traffic light system. Areas will be classified with green, orange, red and grey colors (e.g. if not sufficient information is available). iii) On this basis, Member States shall decide on their own whether, and which specific restrictions are to be implemented towards travelers coming to their territory. However, the Member States have agreed on the same approach regarding areas marked as green, i.e. no restrictions like testing or quarantine will be implemented to travelers coming from green areas. Further, travelers in relevant functions or need shall not be subject to quarantine measures (e.g. patients traveling for medical reasons, diplomats, journalists etc.). iv) The Member States shall provide details of any upcoming restrictions regarding the right to free movement or the cancellation of any travel restrictions to Member States and Commission. Third country nationals with residence in Australia, China (PRC), Hong Kong, Japan, Macao, New Zealand, Rwanda, South Korea, Singapore and Thailand are allowed to enter Luxembourg with the obligation to hold official docments (i.e. permanent place of residence, residence permit, work permit) with them.

Travelers aged six years or older who have been in a high incidence area or in a virus variant area in the past ten days prior to entry into Germany must carry proof that they have been tested for infection with SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus with them upon entry and present it to the competent authorities upon request and, if necessary, to the transport company prior to traveling. The following applies to anyone entering Germany from a risk area: You must undergo a coronavirus test within 48 hours prior to entry or undergo a test immediately after, self-quarantine (for 10 days; if a negative test was conducted at the earliest from the 5th day after entry, the quarantine can be ended prematurely), may not receive gu​​ests and must report to the local health authority. Fines will be imposed for violating the obligation to quarantine.​​ ​The lists of high incidence areas, virus variant areas and other risk areas are published on the website of the Robert Koch Institute.​​​ The test must have been performed no more than 48 hours prior to entry (time of swabbing). Proof of the test result must be on paper or in an electronic document in English, French or German. Travelers can find details regarding the test requirements on the website of the Robert Koch Institute. The test result must be kept for at least ten days after entry. No exceptions can be made for entry from virus variant areas.

All flights connecting with the United Kingdom are suspended. Touristic journeys into the remaining parts of the country are not advised at this time. The means of entry into Finland depend on the level of infection in the country of origin: the country of origin must not exceed the epidemiological threshold of 25 new infections per 100,000 persons within a period of 14 days. The entry of residents of Australia, Japan, New Zealand, Rwanda, Singapore, South Korea, and Thailand, when arriving from the above mentioned countries, is unrestricted. On January 22, 2021, the government tightened the restrictions on entry into Finland. The new restrictions will enter into force on January 27, 2021, and will remain in force until February 25, 2021. The new restrictions aim to reduce cross-border traffic in order to prevent the spread of the new COVID-19 variants. The epidemiological situation in Finland differs considerably from that in other Schengen countries. As of January 27, 2021, Finland will restrict entry from all Schengen countries. Only essential travel for work will be permitted across internal borders. People themselves cannot determine whether their commuting is deemed essential. Entry is still permitted for healthcare and rescue service personnel (including emergency medical care) and for professionals who take care of the elderly in their duties; freight transport and logistics personnel in their duties, as well as for authorities in essential duties, diplomats, staff of international organizations, military personnel, and personnel of aid organizations in their duties, as well as for representatives of states participating in international negotiations, and for persons participating in the work of international organizations. The entry of foreign nationals is also permitted for essential and justified reasons. These include the entry of foreign media representatives; transit of regular, scheduled flights at an airport, travel to a property, private residence or holiday residence in Finland, asset arrangements in Finland, and the entry into the country of a family member of a Finnish citizen residing abroad. The entry of foreign nationals from Schengen countries subject to restrictions and certain other countries (restriction category 1) is permitted for family reasons. In restriction category 1, spouses (including cohabitant and close personal relationship), children and parents are considered relatives. This also includes parents-in-law and grandparents. This means that it is no longer possible to visit, for example siblings or cousins on the basis of a family relationship. Entry from other third countries subject to the restrictions (restriction category 2) is only possible for imperative family reasons (e.g. the birth of one's own child, a serious illness of an immediate family member, one’s own wedding, a close personal relationship). Studying in Finland is a permitted reason for entry from the Schengen countries subject to the restrictions and certain other countries (restriction category 1). People traveling with a Finnish residence permit, those in need of international protection or those traveling for other humanitarian reasons, and for compelling personal reasons are still permitted to enter the country. To cross the international border, travelers shall use border crossing points where border controls have been reinstated. Crossing the border in other places is not permitted without a border crossing permit.

In order to reduce the spread of the coronavirus outbreak, the 27 EU Member States have taken several measures, some of which have affected the right of citizens to move freely within the European Union (e.g. such as the requirement to undergo quarantine or coronavirus testing). The Recommendation identifies the following four key areas where Member States will coordinate their efforts: 1) Member States shall take into account the notification rate, the test positivity rate and the testing rate when considering restriction measures as a response to the prevention of the Coronavirus spread. 2) The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control shall publish a map of all EU Member States including Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland, reflecting the risk levels within the regions in Europe by way of using a traffic light system. Areas will be classified with green, orange, red and grey colours (e.g. if not sufficient information is available). 3) On this basis, Member States shall decide on their own whether, and which specific restrictions are to be implemented​ towards travelers coming to their territory. However, the Member States have agreed on the same approach regarding areas marked as green, i.e. no restrictions like testing or quarantine will be implemented to travelers coming from green areas. Further, travelers in relevant functions or needs shall not be subject to quarantine measures (e.g. patients traveling for medical reasons, diplomats, journalists etc.) 4) The Member States shall provide details of any upcoming restrictions regarding the right to free movement or the cancellation of any travel restrictions to Member States and Commission. ​​In general, entry from EU member states and Schengen member states ​as well as from all non-EU countries/third countries to Hungary, is ​only allowed for residents of Hungary and for travelers with special exemptions​. This does not apply to military con​​voys, business or diplomatic trips. An exemption may be granted by the police if entry is for court, administrative, family, health, education, or other legitimate reasons and if health screening is negative; however, travelers that are exempt must self-quarantine​​ for 10 days.​​ or participate in a double screening measure, including a five day quarantine until the results of the second test are known.
