India is considered a particular high-risk country due to the virus variant discovered there which seems to spread much faster than the formerly known mutations. Any person, regardless of nationality and age, who stayed in India during the last 14 days must undergo a PCR-test upon arrival and contact the medical analysis laboratory. If the person arrives in Luxembourg by air, the test will be carried out free of charge at the COVID-19 test centre at the airport. Until July 15, 2021 inclusive, additional sanitary measures including a quarantine requirement are applicable to all travel originating from India. By exemption, the quarantine may be lifted early for persons on duty in the transport sector, provided that these persons leave the national territory as soon as possible in the course of their professional activities. Effective June 7, 2021, any arriving travelers who have stayed in the UK in the preceding 14 days must submit to a COVID-19 test on arrival and quarantine for seven days before taking a second COVID-19 test. EU citizens and those of Schengen area countries, as well as citizens of (e.g.) San Marino, Andorra, Monaco and the Vatican/Holy See are free to enter the territory of Luxembourg, regardless of the purpose of the stay and not only to return to their homes. Travelers arriving by air from the Frankfurt-Hahn or Cologne airports in Germany who are traveling on to Luxembourg by car must present a negative PCR or antigen test not older than 48 hours. There are no border controls between Luxembourg and Germany. 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. Except for some third countries (e.g. Australia, subject to reciprocity at EU level: China, Hong-Kong, Macao, New Zealand, Rwanda, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand ), third-country nationals also may not enter the territory of the Grand Duchy until June 30, 2021. It should be noted that from January 1, 2021, restrictions also apply to third-country nationals residing in the UK including British nationals who are not covered by the provisions of the Withdrawal Agreement. Some other exemptions of third-country nationals are also allowed to enter the Grand Duchy, i.e. third-country nationals who have the status of long-term resident in accordance with European Directive 2003/109/EC on long-term residents, as well as any other person entitled to stay in the country in accordance with the corresponding European Directives and with the national law of a European Union member State or a Schengen Area associated country, and anyone who holds a national long-term visa issued by any of these States; cross-border workers; passengers in transit; passengers travelling for duly justified urgent family reasons and/or highly-qualified workers from third countries if their employment is necessary in economic terms and their work cannot be postponed or carried out from abroad.

​In Luxembourg, one distinguishes between isolation, quarantine and self-monitoring measures. Isolation applies to people who have been confirmed as being infected by COVID-19. They must self-isolate at home and the people living in the same house and their close contacts should quarantine themselves for 7 days.​ ​ Quarantine applies to people who have had high-risk contact with a person with a confirmed infection, i.e. face-to-face contact for more than 15 minutes, unprotected physical contact, etc. These people must stay at home for 7 days counting from the day of the last contact with the infected person.​ Self-monitoring lasts 14 days and applies to people who have had low-risk contact with a person who has been confirmed as being infected. Luxembourg has no quarantine ​obligation for travelers​​, except ​for those with a positive COVID-19 test result​. In this case, a 10 day isolation is mandatory. ​​

The Federal Office of Public Health provides a regularly updated list of countries defined as COVID-19 risk area. If a country is on the list, this includes all of its areas, islands and overseas territories – even if they are not listed separately. From June 3, 2021, Turkey as well as regions in Germany, France and Italy are no longer on the list. Travelers from the EU member states and the Schengen area may enter Liechtenstein without any restrictions, unless a region or country is defined as COVID-19 risk area on the list of the Federal Office of Public Health: https://www.bag.admin.ch/bag/en/home/krankheiten/ausbrueche-epidemien-pandemien/aktuelle ausbrueche-epidemien/novel-cov/empfehlungen-fuer-reisende/quarantaene-einreisende.html#1918240392). This also applies to travelers from non-Schengen countries, e.g. Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia and Cyprus, who are entitled to free movement. Travelers entering Liechtenstein 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.

Starting May 31, 2021, authorities will allow permitted individuals who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have recovered from the disease in the past six months to enter without restrictions. This does not apply to travelers from countries of high concern (Brazil, Canada, India, Nepal, South Africa and the UK). With effect from May 17, 2021 travelers entering Liechtenstein from a state or area where a Sars-CoV-2 variant of concern is prevalent, the exemptions from the testing and quarantine requirements will be limited.

Passengers who in the last 10 days prior to their entry to Liechtenstein have been to a country of high infection risk are generally required to quarantine for 10 days. They must also register their entry to the Health Office of Liechtenstein. Quarantine for travelers from high-risk areas may be shortened with the approval of the health authority if a negative PCR test on the seventh day of quarantine can be evidenced. The list of risk countries is updated regulalrly by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health. It is not possible to enter Liechtenstein from a high-risk country in order to travel on to another Schengen country for a short stay of up to 90 days that does not require a residence document. However, third-country citizens holding a residence document for their destination country in the Schengen area are allowed to travel through Liechtenstein to that country.

Children ​under 6 years are also exempt from the testing requirement, although they are advised to restrict movements for 14 days. ​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 colours (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 needs 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 Stat​es and Commission. ​Transit across Irish airports is possible as long as the travelers stay within the airport area.​​

Fully vaccinated people who have the documents to prove that do not have to complete mandatory hotel quarantine. Also, children will be exempted from the requirement to complete mandatory hotel quarantine. Nevertheless, even vaccinated persons still have to take a negative PCR-test taken 72 hours before departure and complete a period of self-quarantine at home or in a place specified in the passenger locator form. All passengers arriving into Ireland from designated states after 4 am on the morning of Friday, March 26, 2021 are required to pre-book accommodation in a designated quarantine facility and to pre-pay for their stay. All passengers must undergo a 14 day quarantine period at the address specified on a Passenger Locator Form. Passengers coming to Ireland from countries not classified as high risk are required to quarantine at home if they can provide a negative or "not detected" PCR test result. The quanrantine can end if a (second) negative or "not detected" PCR test result is given no less than 5 days after the arrival. The Irish Defence Forces have been designated as the State Liaison Officer (SLO) to support Ireland’s mandatory hotel quarantine policy. Upon arrival into Ireland, regardless of whether passengers arrive by sea or by air, after immigration and customs processing every person will be met by members of the Defence Forces who will ensure travelers are safely and securely transported from the port of entry to the location in which travelers will complete the pre-booked mandatory hotel quarantine. The place of residence may only be left during the quarantine period for unavoidable reasons of an emergency nature: to protect a person’s health or welfare, to leave the State, or to avail of a test when requested to do so in writing by the HSE. A free COVID-19 test must be arranged. The test should be done 5 days after you arrived in Ireland or as soon as possible after those 5 days. This test will be provided by the HSE. Travelers may leave their quarantine to take this test. Whatever the result of the test, everyone must complete the 14 day period of quarantine. Due to the classification of Ireland as a virus variant area, when traveling from Ireland to Germany, in addition to the existing registration obligation and basic quarantine obligation, proof of negative COVID-19-tests are carried out in German or English; airlines carriers are otherwise not allowed to take people over the age of six with them.

Currently, Iceland has classified all countries except Greenland as high-risk areas. From the beginning of June 2021, holders of the EU digital COVID certificates containing proof of complete vaccination, recovery from COVID-19 or a negative result of a COVID-19 test are allowed to enter Iceland without further restrictions, examinations or quarantine. As of May 31, 2021 a new list of regions and countries that are considered to be special high-risk areas for COVID-19 comes into effect (https://www.stjornartidindi.is/Advert.aspx?RecordID=19ed2aef-d651-45af-8dc6-f746065d40bd). All arriving passengers must undergo/provide at least one COVID-19 test, wherever they are coming from and at any age, including those with a vaccination certificate or a certificate of previous infections upon arrival in Iceland., which must be taken at least 72 hours prior to departure. Nationals from or passengers with a residence permit for Andorra, Monaco, San Marino, Switzerland, Vatican City and other EEA member states as well as British nationals with a residence certificate may enter Iceland. Also travellers from Australia, Israel, Japan, Rep. of Korea, New Zealand, Rwanda, Singapore and Thailand are allowed to enter Iceland. Generally, all foreign nationals may not travel to Iceland if they are arriving from a country classified as a high-risk area. Exempt from this are only Islandic nationals and i.e. passengers travelling for essential reasons (i.e. work, study or medical reasons), as well as holders of the EU digital COVID certificates. Travelers who do not have proof of a negative COVID-19 test, a completed vaccination against COVID-19 or over a survived COVID-19-infection, must be quarantined for five days after the PCR test on entry and undergo another PCR test at the end of the quarantine period. Quarantine may only be ended after a negative test result has been received, and in the event of a positive test result, isolation will be ordered. Transit travel via Iceland (without a stay in the country) is possible and is not subject to quarantine regulations. Transit stays in the country for less than 48 hours are possible without a PCR test, but only in a quarantine accommodation.

The German government approved an exception to the COVID-19 quarantine requirement for certain travelers May 12, 2021. Authorities designate countries and regions as "high incidence", "risk" or "virus variant" locations depending on local disease activity. Travelers from high-incidence and risk areas who have either received the full course of a COVID-19 vaccine approved by the European Medicines Agency no less than 14 days before arrival or have recovered from COVID-19 within the previous six months are exempt from quarantine requirements. Authorities require a positive result from a COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test administered between six months and 28 days prior to arrival as evidence that a traveler has recovered from COVID-19. Upon entry to Germany following a stay in a risk area, high incidence area or virus variant area within the last ten days, travlers must register at www.einreiseanmeldung.de before entering the country and carry proof of having done so, be tested for infection with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus before or immediately after entering the country, and proceed directly to their destination following entry to self-isolate there for ten days in quarantine. In Germany, the individual Länder are responsible for quarantine regulations. The Länder have put in place their own regulations on the basis of a specimen regulation. Because the new specimen regulation contains significant changes, we ask that prior to entering a Land people read the regulations on quarantine and testing carefully that apply to their specific destination. By entering the post code of thei​​r destination they can find the contact information of the competent local health office using the following website: https://tools.rki.de/PLZTool/en-GB

Denmark makes a risk assessment differentiated by countries and regions into the categories "yellow", "orange" and "red", which is updated weekly. With effect from Ju​​ne 5, 2021​ at 4:00 pm, the whole of Germany will be classified as "yellow". This means that from this date onwards, persons residing in Germany will no longer be obliged to go into domestic quarantine (self-isolation) after entering the country. However, the obligation to present a negative COVID-19 test upon entry and to retest after entry remains. Foreigners residing in EU and Schengen countries classified as "yellow" or "orange" may enter the country without providing proof of an important reason. Foreigners residing in other countries (countries outside the EU/Schengen area classified as "orange" or "red" and EU/Schengen countries classified as "red") may in principle only enter Denmark upon proof of an important reason. Entry for tourist purposes is not permitted in this case. Persons who have recovered from a previous COVID-19 infection may also present a positive COVID-19 test if that test was taken between 14-180 days and eight weeks before the flight. Further, all entrants must undergo a 10-day domestic quarantine (self-isolation), which can be shortened by another negative PCR test no earlier than four days after entry. In addition, all entrants are required to undergo a COVID-19 test no later than 24 hours after entry. If entering by air, this test must be done before leaving the airport. Children under the age of 15 are exempt from this rule. Restrictions due to the pandemic apply nationwide, possibly with regional differences. An opening plan has been drawn up for the period up to August 1, 2021, which provides for gradual relaxation depending on the incidence of infection and, where applicable, with local differences. The opening is accompanied by the use of a "corona passport" (document on test or vaccination status) or the obligation to carry proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result no more than 72 hours old, which must be presented on request, e.g. to gain access to cultural and leisure facilities or services close to the body.

As of May 7, 2021, the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) manages international airline flight volume based on COVID-19 testing outcomes for passengers. If a foreign carrier achieves three weeks with no passengers testing positive, officials will permit one more flight on pre-existing routes. If five passengers of an airline test positive, the CAAC will suspend the carrier',s operations for one week, if 10 of the airline',s passengers test positive, the suspension will last four weeks. China and US regulators continue to limit available flights from each other',s countries to eight per week. Authorities also restrict Chinese airlines', international operations and limit capacity on aircraft. Some airlines continue to suspend services to and from mainland China due to significantly decreased demand. All travelers are barred from entering or exiting land border checkpoints. From September 28, 2020, onwards, foreign nationals who currently have valid Chinese residence permits for the purposes of working, visiting family, and personal matters will be allowed to re-enter the country. However, individuals with valid residence permits must undergo COVID-19 tests prior to travel and undergo 14-day quarantine periods upon arrival. Foreign nationals with residence permits that expired after March 28, 2020, are authorized to reapply for entry visas at Chinese diplomatic facilities. As of November 11, 2020, authorities in mainland China are tightening inbound travel restrictions while maintaining localized domestic movement controls amid ongoing efforts to limit the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

The travel warning for Hungary has been lifted with effect from May 30, 2021. However, the Hungarian government still advises​​​ against unnecessary tourist trips. ​​ ​Only Hungarian nationals can enter the country, wi​​​th very few exceptions to this ​​(e.g. passengers traveling on business​, those with a positive COVID-19 test taken at most six months before arrival, who also have a recovery certificate, passengers with an immunity COVID-19 certificate issued by Bahrain, Croatia, Czechia, Georgia, Mongolia, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia or Turkey)​​​. There is a general entry ban for Hungary. ​ Entry from third countries is generally not allowed without a special reason. Flights to and from the UK have been resumed, provided that travelers undergo a mandatory quarantine. People who are subject to the general entry ban can apply for a special permit to enter Hungary, but are still subject to quarantine or testing. Applications for a special permit can only be submitted electronically via the Hungarian police in Hungarian or English ​mainly ​​for: i) the participation​ in judicial or administrative proceedings in Hungary, which can be proven with a Hungarian document issued by a Hungarian court or an authority ii) the use of medical care with a corresponding confirmation, iii) compulsory study and exams with a confirmation from the educational institution, iv) for travel in public transit to perform work with a confirmation from the employer, v) familiy events (e.g. weddings), vi) taking care of relatives, vii) p​​articipating in an international religious event of special significance.​​ Transit through Hungary is only possible on the specific corridor routes. Travelers must complete a health examination. Citizens of neighboring countries and Hungarian citizens who live there can enter the territory of Hungary at a distance of 30 km from the state border for a maximum of 24 hours.​ ​​ The negative result of an initial negative PCR test carried out before entry will be taken into account if it is taken ​in Hungary, ​​from a laboratory in the Schengen area​, USA or was performed in Canada and the negative test res​​ult is presented in English or Hungarian.​ 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 colours (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 needs 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. ​​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​.

Authorities use a color-coded system to track disease activity in each region and impose local restrictions accordingly. Under the system, regions are classified as one of three zones: green, yellow, or red in order of increasing risk of transmission. As of April 22, 2021 the regions of Kyzylorda and Mangystau have been elevated to the red zone. Other areas in the red zone include the cities of Nur-Sultan, Almaty, and Shymkent, as well as the regions of Atyrau, West Kazakhstan, Akmola, Karaganda, Aktobe, Mangistau, and Kyzylorda. Authorities previously eased restrictions that apply in the yellow zone. Areas in the yellow zone include Zhambyl, East Kazakhstan, Pavlodar, and Almaty regions, excluding the city of Almaty. The nation's remaining regions are classified as green zones. Additionally, Kazakh authorities now require residents to obtain a government-provided QR code via the Ashyq mobile application in order to visit government offices and certain public spaces including leisure facilities, cultural venues and entertainment establishments. Residents will have their app scanned at each establishment. Each QR code scan will reveal a resident's color-coded risk rating.
