Additionally, the official Gibraltar Tourist Board website lists the countries which are included in the red list, and provides comprehensive information about the requirements in respect of COVID-19 for travelling to Gibraltar, including information on how to book your COVID-19 tests before you arrive. The website also provides information for travellers entering by sea, and crossing the land border into Gibraltar. If you are a fully vaccinated traveler and have not been in a country or territory on the red list in the 10 days preceding your arrival in Gibraltar by air, you must upload your vaccination certificate on the Passenger Locator Form. You must book a COVID-19 lateral flow test before arriving in Gibraltar. This test must take place in Gibraltar within 24 hours of arrival. If you are an unvaccinated traveler and have not been in a country or territory on the red list in the 10 days before arrival, you must have a pre-departure COVID-19 lateral flow test taken no more than 48 hours before your flight to Gibraltar.

Currently, Iceland has classified all countries except Greenland as high-risk areas.​​​​​ With effect from October 1​, 2021 all travelers who do not have proof of a completed vaccination against COVID-19 or a recovery certificate are generally required to present a negative PCR test upon arrival, which was carried out a m​aximum of 72 hours before departure. This does not apply to children born in 2005 or later. All travelers who have been vaccinated and those who have recovered (illness was more than six months ago) must also have a negative COVID-19 test upon entry to Iceland carried out no more than 72 hours before departure. Airline can refuse a passenger to board if they do not present a negative test that is required. ​All passengers born before 2005 are required to complete a pre-registration form prior to their departure to Iceland, in which they provide personal and contact details, flight information, travel dates, address (es) during their stay in Iceland and information about countries they will travel. In addition, they have to go through two more PCR tests: one on arrival and another 5-6 days later. All travelers undergoing border control must remain in isolation until they receive a negative result from the second PCR test. Those who test negative in the second PCR test are no longer subject to special precautions. Those who test positive need to self-isolate. 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 ​nationals from or passengers with a residence permit from ​Albania, ​​Australia,​ Hong Kong,​​ ​​Israel, Japan, Rep. of Korea, ​​​Lebanon, Macao, ​New Zealand, ​​North Macedonia, ​​​Rwanda, ​Serbia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and USA​ are allowed to enter Iceland.​​​​ Transit travel via Iceland (without a stay in the country) is ​possible and is not subject to quarantine ​regulations​ nor to health examinations.

In order to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 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 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.​

Denmark carries out a risk assessment differentiated by country and region into the categories "green", "yellow", "orange" and "red", which is updated weekly. The applicable entry rules and the classification of the risk areas are published on the Danish authorities' portal. This also provides a summary in German of the information on the Danish corona regulations that is of particular relevance to tourists. For persons residing in "green" or "yellow" classified countries or regions, the following entry requirements currently apply: i) Valid reason for entry​: Foreigners residing in countries or regions classified as "green" or "yellow" are allowed to enter without proving a valid reason. Foreigners residing in other countries, even if they have resided in Germany prior to entering Denmark, are generally only allowed to enter Denmark upon proof of good cause. Entry for tourist purposes is not permitted in this case. ii) Test obligation: For those entering Denmark by air, land and sea, there is a general obligation to present a negative COVID-19 test upon entry. A PCR test may be performed up to 72 hours and an antigen test up to 48 hours before entry. In our experience, non-compliance with these requirements leads to rejection at the border. The presentation of a falsified test result is prosecuted as forgery and can be punished with imprisonment and an entry ban. For foreigners residing in a country classified as "yellow", there is an obligation to perform a second -free of charge- COVID-19 test no later than 24 hours after entry. If entering by air, this test must be done before leaving the airport. Testing centers have been established at airports, border crossings, and numerous other locations throughout the country for those entering the country. As of October 10, 2021, public Corona rapid testing centers are closed. Individual PCR testing centers still offer rapid antigen testing. In addition, rapid antigen testing can be performed by commercial providers at their own expense. Foreigners residing in a country or region classified as "green" (currently Schleswig-Holstein) are no longer required to have a second test after entry. ​

Airports are open and entries from certain countries are allowed, regardless of nationality. Depending on the infection situation, the Cypriot government classifies states into colored categories. The current classification is regularly adjusted and published in a list. Persons entering Germany who have been fully vaccinated with a vaccine approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) or with the vaccines Sputnik V, Sinopharm or Sinovac are exempt from the testing requirement. For the Johnson & Johnson single-use vaccine, this does not apply until 14 days after vaccination. The same applies to convalescents. Complete vaccination and recovery can only be proven in Cyprus by the European Vaccination or Convalescent Certificate (EUDCC). The yellow vaccination certificate is not accepted. Passengers of select flights will be tested upon arrival in Cyprus. This also applies to vaccinated or recovered persons. All travelers must register online prior to departure to obtain a "Cyprus Flight Pass". For this purpose, a questionnaire must be completed online and a broad waiver of liability to the Republic of Cyprus in relation to COVID-19 disease must be declared. Proof of vaccination must be attached to the online application. The "Cyprus Flight Pass" must be printed out and carried on the flight as well as the vaccination certificate. If this cannot be presented upon arrival in Cyprus, entry will be refused or a fine of 300 EUR will be imposed. If a traveler tests positive upon arrival or later, the Cypriot government is obligated to take care of them during their stay and to take care of their close contacts. This means establishing contact, accommodation in a quarantine hotel and assumption of the costs for accommodation, food and medication. In practice, however, it has become apparent that due to the very high numbers of infections since the end of June, the care of those who have tested positive and the passing on of information about the procedure is not ensured in all cases. Information is provided on telephone numbers 1474 (in Cyprus) or +357 22 285 75 (from abroad). A negative PCR test or rapid antigen test in Greek, Turkish or English must be provided and must include the traveler's name and ID/passport number. Travelers who have been fully vaccinated with a vaccine approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) or with the Sputnik V-, Sinopharm or Sinovac vaccines may enter the country 14 days after the last vaccination with a rapid antigen test or PCR test not older than seven days.

Travelers who have recovered from an infection may alternatively present a certificate of recovery in digital or written form, issued by an authority or a certified laboratory. The certificate may be issued no earlier than 30 days after the first positive test, performed by a public authority or certified laboratory, and is valid for up to 180 days thereafter.

Passengers must undergo COVID-19 testing upon arrival in China and self-isolate at designated facilities until their results are available. Singapore travelers must also adhere to a preplanned itinerary, refrain from using public transport - except for private hire vehicles - for the first 14 days, and download and use a health pass while in mainland China. Arriving passengers testing positive for COVID-19 will undergo treatment at their own expense. 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). Authorities have extended a ban on foreign nationals traveling from specific countries to include arrivals from Belgium, Canada, France, Russia, the Philippines, India, Italy, Bangladesh, the UK, Ukraine, and Ethiopia. The restrictions do not apply to Chinese nationals, foreign holders of diplomatic passports, and individuals with C visas, which are issued to flight and shipping crew members. Chinese authorities may expand the ban on inbound travel by foreign nationals arriving from additional countries at short notice in the coming days.
