​As of Monday, April 26, 2021, India is considered a high-risk country. The virus variant discovered there seems to spread much faster than local mutations. ​ Switzerland continues to be severely affected by COVID-19 despite declining case numbers. The number of new infections exceeds 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in seven days which is why Switzerland is classified as a risk area. Last week,​ 119.5 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants were reported in Switzerland ("7-day incidence").​ ​ ​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. Under most circumstances, only citizens and residents of EEA countries, in addition to Australia, New Zealand, Rwanda, Singapore, South Korea, and Thailand, may enter Switzerland. ​​ ​​​​In response to the COVID-19 pandemic there are special rules for people entering Switzerland. Depending on the type of travel, you might have to fill out an entry form, show proof of a negative test and/or go into quarantine.​ ​ Non-essential tourist travel to Switzerland is warned against due to high infection rates. Air travelers can enter the country via the airports of Zurich, Geneva and Basel, as well as some regional airports. The flight schedule is thinned out. ​ 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. It is not possible to enter Switzerland 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 Switzerland to that country. ​ 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.​ 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.

Effective April 20, 2021 people fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are exempt from quarantine for six months. The quarantine exemption takes effect 14 days after vaccination.​ The mandatory quarantine requirement is governed by the list valid at the moment of entry into Switzerland. The mandatory quarantine requirement also applies to children. If you are checked at the border and cannot show a negative PCR test result, you must be tested immediately in Switzerland. Do a rapid PCR or antigen test as soon as possible. If this test is positive, you must immediately put yourself in isolation. ​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. Exemptions from the quarantine requirement are in place and include: i) People traveling on business for an important reason that cannot be postponed, ii) People travelling for an important medical reason that cannot be postponed, iii) transit passengers who have spent less than 24 hours in a state or area with an increased risk of infection, iv) People who in the course of their professional activities transport passengers or goods across borders.​ ​ 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. ​Children under are 12 are not subject to the testing requirement.​

Violations of these measures are explicitly listed as criminal offenses and can be punished with fines of up to 200 CHF. Persons aged 12 and over are also not required to wear a mask if they can prove that they are unable to wear a mask for a specific reason. Such reasons include, for example, facial injuries, acute shortness of breath, conditions such as dementia and Alzheimer’s, anxiety when wearing a mask and disabilities that make wearing a mask intolerable or impossible. All medical grounds must be substantiated with a certificate from a doctor or psychotherapist. In some cases, the contact details of travelers will be collected upon their arrival in Switzerland. This will affect all airline passengers as well as coach passengers from countries with an increased risk of infection. Food service establishments are closed until at least April 15, 2021, with the exception of hotel restaurants and pick-up and delivery services. Museums, outdoor areas of zoos and botanical gardens, outdoor recreational and sports facilities are open.

Ski areas may only be opened if authorized by the canton. The criteria for a canton to grant authorization include, in particular, the availability of the necessary capacity in healthcare facilities and an epidemiological situation that permits the opening of the ski areas. Operators of ski areas must implement stringent precautionary measures, including the mandatory wearing of masks in both the transport installations and the waiting areas for these installations. The closure of restaurant businesses also applies in ski areas. Airline and travel companies are instructed not to transport sick passengers. Bus operators in international travel are obliged to provide the competent Swiss authorities with contact cards (questionnaires) to be filled out by passengers from risk countries/areas upon entry into Switzerland and to inform their passengers in writing about the duty to provide information and possible quarantine before departure.

Non-essential tourist travel to Sweden is currently warned against due to high infection rates. Until May 31, 2021, there is an entry ban for non-essential travel to Sweden from countries outside the EU. The general entry ban for foreign citizens who cannot present a negative COVID-19 test result on arrival in Sweden has been extended until 31 May 2021. Entry to Sweden from the UK is subject to the same rules that apply to other third countries outside the EU/EEA area. In practice, this means that an entry ban and the requirement of a negative COVID-19 test result for people arriving from the UK will remain in effect, with certain exemptions. British citizens and their family members who have applied for residence status are exempt from the entry ban and test requirement on entry to Sweden from countries outside the EU/EEA. The entry ban does not apply to: i) EU and Schengen Associated Countries citizens and their family members, ii) permanent residents or holders of a residence permit in Sweden or another EU Member State or Schengen Associated country, iii) People who have a national visa in Sweden or a national visa valid longer than three months in another EU Member State or Schengen Associated country, iv) People who have family ties as specified under the Aliens Act (2005:716). Entry in Sweden is allowed for foreigners who reside in the following countries: Australia, Japan, Canada, New Zealand, Rwanda, South Korea and Thailand. Sweden is very severely affected by COVID-19. Nationwide, the number of new infections exceeds 300 cases per 100,000 inhabitants per seven days, which is why Sweden is classified as an area at particularly high risk of infection (high-incidence area). A negative COVID-19 test result must be presented upon entry. The maximum time between sample collection and border crossing is 48 hours. PCR, LAMP and antigen test results are accepted. Effective from January 24, 2021, the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises against unnecessary travel to Norway. Travelers from EU Member States (with the exception of Denmark) and Schengen Associated countries, and their family members, as well as people with Swedish residence permits, are allowed to enter Sweden without restrictions. Transit through Sweden is only possible to a very limited extent for entries by ferry from Germany to Sweden in the direction of Finland and Norway, whereby the entry regulations of the destination country and the only limited return travel options must be observed. For information on entering, transiting and returning by land, air and sea via Denmark, see the Travel and Safety Information for Denmark. Independent of the COVID-19 pandemic, Sweden has temporarily introduced border controls. Random checks are carried out at all border crossing points.

Nationwide, the number of new infections exceeds 300 cases per 100,000 population on seven days. Last week, 338.5 new infections per 100,000 population were reported in Sweden ("7-day incidence"). From February 6, 2021 foreign nationals have to present a negative test result for COVID-19 infection upon entry into Sweden, regardless of where they are arriving from. Results of PCR tests, LAMP tests and antigen tests are accepted. Children aged 17 and under are exempted. The documentation should be in Swedish, English, Norwegian or Danish, and contain the following: Your name, date and time the test was taken, type of test (PRC, LAMP or antigen), test result, who issued the certificate. The test result must not be older than 48 hours. Foreign nationals aged 18 and older are subject to the test requirement. Exemptions are available for cross-border workers. Appropriate grounds for exemption from the requirement to present a negative COVID-19 test must be able to be supported with meaningful documentation at the border. The health authority also recommends that this group of persons covered by an exemption rule be tested upon entry and segregated for seven days. As of January 2021, travelers from the UK and South Africa are required to test negatively for COVID-19 before entering Sweden. Swedish citizens are exempt from the requirement but all travelers from the UK and South Africa are encouraged to test for COVID-19 upon arrival to Sweden, stay at home and test again after five days. Airlines may require passengers to present a health statement. This is, however, not a general requirement for coming to Sweden. Travelers who show symptoms that do not disappear within 24 hours or that do not have some other explanation, e.g. allergy, migraine or similar, should get tested. If you have been tested without symptoms and received a positive test result, you must stay home for at least seven days after testing.

Sweden is extending restrictions in the COVID-19 crisis due to high and rising numbers of new infections. Facilities such as libraries, swimming pools, museums and amusement parks have closed or restricted opening hours and access restrictions. Binding distance regulations apply in public spaces, such as restaurants. Hotel and camping businesses and mountain huts are open with restrictions. Gatherings of more than eight people are prohibited. Most shops and stores are open, but may have reduced opening hours and limits to the number of customers allowed. In Stockholm, a comprehensive mask recommendation applies in all public spaces regardless of the time of day. There is no obligation to wear masks or gloves, but the population is urged to observe distance and hygiene rules, especially when traveling. Crowds of people should be avoided. If you have cold symptoms, you should isolate yourself until two days after the symptoms have subsided. You can get help by telephone from the nearest health center (vård central) or from the medical information center at 1177. In case of emergency, call 112 for an ambulance. During the Covid-19 pandemic, there may be reductions in healthcare services because of the handling of Covid-19. Do not visit a health center (“vårdcentral”) if you have any symptoms associated with Covid-19. Instead call 1177 where you will get medical advice from a registered nurse. The Swedish authorities urge people to avoid unnecessary travel. Symptom-free people are generally allowed to move freely around the country, but when traveling they should choose low-contact means of travel, avoid public transport and avoid making new acquantainces during their journey and at their destination. Capacity restrictions apply to buses and trains on routes of more than 150 kilometers. The maximum number of passengers on buses and trains traveling more than 150 kilometers within Sweden is limited to half the number of seats. Ski resorts are open, however ski resort operators have been called upon to ensure low-contact and safe operations. As of January 7, 2021, the recommendation to wear mouth and nose protection will apply during peak hours on public transportation. Beginning December 19, 2020 all non-essential public services run by the state, regions and municipalities are closed (this includes swimming pools, sports centers and museums). There are no curfews in place. Persons without symptoms may move freely in the country. However, unnecessary travel should be avoided if possible. There is a ban on assemblies of eight people or more, including spectators at sporting events and church services. As of January 27, 2021, fines of up to SEK 2,000 (about €200) can be imposed for exceeding the permitted number of participants at gatherings or violating the ban on staying in certain places.

Unnecessary tourist trips to the autonomous communities of Andalusia, Aragon, Asturias, Extremadura, Cantabria, Castile-Léon, Castile-La Mancha, Catalonia, Madrid, Navarre, La Rioja, the Basque Country, the exclaves of Ceuta and Melilla, and the Canary Islands are warned against. Travel in mainland Spain between the Autonomous Communities is only allowed for valid reasons. These include, for example, returning to a residence or travel for professional reasons. Tourist travel is not considered a valid reason. Until further notice, entry from Portugal by land is only possible at certain border crossings and at certain times. Temporary border controls will be introduced. Entry for the purpose of returning to the place of residence (in Spain or other EU states or Schengen-associated states) and e.g. for commercial and professional purposes (border commuters) is still permitted. Spanish ports are closed to internationally operating cruise ships until further notice. For Andalusia, the ban on entering and leaving the country and the nighttime curfew were lifted.

Non-essential tourist travel to Slovenia is currently warned against due to high infection rates. Germany is listed by Slovenia as a risk area ("red list"). For entry from Hungary to Slovenia by land, the border crossing points Dolga vas/Redics and Pince/Torniyszentmiklos are available to all travelers without restrictions. The border crossing points on the Slovenian-Italian, Slovenian-Croatian and Slovenian-Austrian borders are not subject to any special corona-related closures on the Slovenian side. Nationwide, the incidence is currently over 200 cases per 100,000 inhabitants per seven days, which is why Slovenia is classified as an area at particularly high risk of infection (high incidence area). Last week, 209.2 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants were reported in Slovenia ("7-day incidence"). The spread of COVID-19 continues to cause restrictions on international travel and disruptions to public life. The international airports in Slovenia (Ljubljana; Maribor; Portorož) are open. Air traffic is gradually resuming. Buses and trains are operating on a limited basis. Cross-border bus traffic is permitted only for the purpose of transit through Slovenia. Short stops in urgent cases are allowed. Bus drivers must carry a list of all passengers. Based on the assessment of the epidemiological situation, the Slovenian government determines which countries are classified as risk areas. Countries that are classified as risk areas are included in a red list. The list of these countries can be found on the English-language website of the Slovenian government. Cross-border bus traffic is only allowed for the purpose of transit through Slovenia. For the most recent information on changes, please go to the government website Border Crossing: https://www.policija.si/eng/newsroom/news-archive/103470-crossing-the-state-border-during-the-coronavirus-epidemic Entry to Slovenia is permitted with no restrictions and quarantine from countries that are on the green or orange list have no border crossing limitations. Persons entering Slovenia from outside the Schengen area (entry by land from Croatia and entry by air) and entering Slovenia from one of the red-listed countries are subject to testing upon entry (rapid antigen test). Depending on their epidemiological situation, Slovenia divides countries into three categories. For each category, a different set of entry rules applies: ii) People with permanent or temporary residence in a country that has been listed as epidemiologically safe (the green list), and those arriving from such countries, can enter Slovenia without restrictions or quarantine, ii) People entering Slovenia, who are a resident of a country listed as having an unstable epidemiological situation (red list) or who arrive from such a country, shall be required to stay in quarantine for a period of ten days, iii) If a country is not on epidemiologically safe country list, nor on the list of countries with an unstable epidemiological situation, it shall be considered that it has been included on the orange list. People arriving in Slovenia from an EU Member state or member of the Schengen Area that has been included on the orange list can enter Slovenia without restrictions or quarantine. Passengers traveling from a non-EU country to another non-EU country may transit through the international transit area of airports located in the Schengen area. Rules regarding airport transit visa requirements continue to apply. "Transit through" means that a person must leave Slovenia within 6 hours and their travel must be without unnecessary and redundant stops, all without leaving the transit route. Persons entering Slovenia in transit must have valid travel documents (including a visa or a residence permit when required), including a document stating the purpose of travel and the destination (as of July 14, 2020 this document is not required for travelers with a permanent or temporary residence in EU member states).

Quarantine:
This may include a quarantine period or a medical clearance

Travelers from countries that are NOT explicitly named on the "red" list can enter Slovenia without quarantine or negative test result requirement. A person is considered to be coming from a country if he/she has stayed in that country continuously for 14 days before entering Slovenia (which can be proven by a proper certificate). Travelers from Germany are subject to a 10-day quarantine obligation upon entry into Slovenia and the duration of the quarantine cannot be shortened. There are exceptions to the above quarantine obligation. Among others, travelers are exempt from the quarantine obligation if they can present a negative PCR test, which is not older than 48 hours, when crossing the border. The test is recognized if it was performed in an EU member state or in Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Switzerland. An antigen test is not sufficient. Travelers who can present a proof of vaccination against COVID-19 or who have been infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the past are exempt from quarantine. It is required that the vaccination took place in a EU+ country and that the second dose has been administered at least: 7 days before arrival for Biontech/Pfizer, 14 days before arrival for Moderna, 21 days before arrival for AstraZeneca. A 10-day quarantine rule applies to all travelers arriving in Slovenia from countries with an unstable epidemiological situation (red list), irrespective of their citizenship or residence. Travelers arriving from Croatia will be required to quarantine for ten days due to a possible SARS-CoV-2 infection. Quarantine shall not be ordered for persons who can submit a medical certificate proving that they have tested negative for COVID-19, which is not older than 48 hours and was performed in an EU member state, in a member of the Schengen Area, i.e. with an organization or individual recognized as suitable and credible and published on the National Laboratory of Health, Environment and Food website. A rapid antigen test is not sufficient. A rapid antigen test is only sufficient if it was performed in an EU Member State or in Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Switzerland and is not older than 24 hours. Passengers without a medical certificate with a negative COVID-19 test result taken at most 48 hours before arrival could be subject to a 10-day quarantine. The quarantine lasts 10 days from the last high-risk contact, or from entering Slovenia. The purpose of the quarantine at home is to prevent the spread of infection. An epidemiologist will instruct the person who tested positive in the coronavirus test to inform all those with whom the person has been in close contact. If the person has installed the mobile application #OstaniZdrav, then the person shall enter the TAN code received from the epidemiologist, after which all the other contacts who have the application installed will be informed about the contact risk. All those who have been informed that they have been in close contact with an infected person (both directly from the infected person, as well as via the mobile application #OstaniZdrav), must stay home. A person who has been in close contact with another person who tested positive for COVID-19, or who came from abroad (from a red listed country), must limit their contact with other people. This means that the healthy person must quarantine themselves at home, i.e. self-isolate at their permanent, temporary, or other address of residence. The quarantine lasts 10 days from the last high-risk contact, or 10 days from the day of entry into Slovenia. The purpose of quarantining at home is to prevent the spread of infection. The red list of epidemiologically unstable countries includes countries who registered more than 40 cases per 100,000 inhabitants over two weeks. Persons who intend to work in Slovenia shall be ordered to quarantine at the address stated in the employer’s certificate, submitted at the entry to Slovenia at the time of crossing the state border.

Until​ May 15, 2021 inclusive, additional sanitary measures including a quarantine requirement are applicable to all travel originating from India EU​​​ citizens and those of Schengen area cou​​​ntries, 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. ​ Trave​lers arriving by air from the Frankfurt-Hahn or Cologne airports in Germany who are traveli​ng 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. Any person aged ​​​​6 years and up, regardless of nationality and wishi​ng to travel by air transport to the Grand ​Duchy of Luxembourg, must present a negative ​COVID-19-test result upon boarding. ​The test must have been taken less than 72 hours prior to departure.​ The negative test result must be presented, if necessary accompanied by a translation, in one of the administrative languages ​​of Luxembourg or in English.

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.​​ There are restrictions on international air, train and bus traffic. There are several intra-European flight connections. Buses, intercity buses and trains run to a reduced extent.​​​

​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. ​​

However, small shops with a sales area of less than 20 square meters​ can accommodate a maximum of two customers at the same time. The aim is not to penalize small businesses and to allow them to continue working. Shopping centers with a sales area equal to or greater than 400 square metres must provide a health protocol, which has to be accepted by the National Health Directorate. ​ ​ The health authority can be contacted by those with COVID-19 symptoms or who have had contact with infected persons: tel.: +352 4977 1 9200 (from abroad) or tel.: 8002 8080​

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. As of May 6th, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Greece, Kosovo and regions in Italy and Austria will no longer be on the list of COVID-19 risk areas. Nevertheless, travel from the aforementioned countries is not recommended. India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nepal are new on the list of the risk countries due to the virus variant discovered there. Entry from the United Kingdom is banned except for returning citizens and residents. At the border evidence of a negative PCR test result has to be shown.Upon entry to Liechtenstein without the appropriate evidence, travelers must be tested immediately in Liechtenstein (rapid PCR or antigen test). In cases where the test is positive, travelers must immediately isolate themself and quarantine for ten days. Liechtenstein continues to be severely affected by COVID-19 despite declining case numbers. The number of new infections exceeds 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in seven days, which is why Germany has classified Liechtenstein as a risk area. Passengers have to fill out an entry form prior to their entry to Liechtenstein. Passengers entering Liechtenstein by airplane or passengers who in the last 10 days prior to their entry to Liechtenstein have been to a country of high infection risk must show proof of a negative PCR-test taken no longer than 72 hours prior to their entry. 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.

In Ireland there are increasing cases of the new, more contagious variant of COVID-19. Ireland is classified as a risk area with a particularly high risk of infection. There are currently warnings against unnecessary tourist trips to Ireland, with the exception of the South-West, Mid-West and South-East regions. Unnecessary tourist trips to the South-West, Mid-West and South-East regions are still not recommended. As of Monday, April 26, 2021, India is considered a high-risk country due to the virus variant discovered there which seems to spread much faster than the formerly known mutations. All passengers arriving into Ireland (except those arriving from Northern Ireland) are required to have a negative/‘not detected’ result from a pre-departure COVID-19 PCR test carried out no more than 72 hours prior to arrival in Ireland. Evidence of this negative/'not detected' result must be shown before boarding the airplane or ferry from the country passengers are traveling from. Travelers will be denied boarding if they cannot produce such evidence and this evidence must be shown to the Irish immigration office by arrival into Ireland. All travelers from overseas, including if they are traveling onwards to Northern Ireland, must complete a COVID-19 Passenger Locator Form which is available online. The e-receipt must be saved for 14 days after arrival and produced upon request to a Member of An Garda Síochána. Travel to Ireland from specific designated states is subject to mandatory hotel quarantine of 14 days. This must be pre-booked in advance of travel. These arrangements apply to any passenger who has been in any of the risk countries in the previous 14 days, even if only transiting through. The list of the designated states will be subject to change at short notice and all passengers are required to check the list before traveling. Currently many African, North- and South American, Asian and European countries are affected by this regulation. Travelers who are fully vaccinated and have the documents to prove that do not have complete a hotel quarantine. But vaccinated travelers are obliged to have a negative/’not detected’ result from a PCR test taken in the 72 hours before arrival and complete a period of self-quarantine (e.g. at home). The updated list of designated states currently includes the following countries: Andorra, Angola, Argentina, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Belgium, Bermuda, Bolivia, Botswana, Brazil, Burundi, Canada, Cape Verde, Chile, Colombia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Eswatini, Ethiopia, France, French Guiana, Georgia, Guyana, India, Iran, Kenya,Kuwait, Lesotho, Luxembourg, Malawi, Maldives, Montenegro, Mongolia, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Oman, Palestine, Pakistan, Paraguay, Panama, Peru, The Philippines, Puerto Rico, Qatar, Rwanda, Serbia, Seychelles, Somalia, South Africa, Suriname, Tanzania, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United States of America, Uruguay, Venezuela, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Passengers who arrive in an Irish Airport or Sea Port without evidence of a negative/'not detected' test result will commit an offence and may be subject to prosecution, punishable by a fine not exceeding €2,500 or imprisonment for a term not exceeding 6 months or both. International Transport Workers, including workers in aviation, maritime and road haulage sectors are exempt from this requirement where they are traveling in the course of performing their duties. Passengers who arrive in Ireland solely for the purpose of traveling onwards to another state and do not leave the airport are also not required to provide evidence of a test. Children under 6 years are also exempt from the testing requirement, although they are advised to restrict movements for 14 days.

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.

Failure to complete the form could result in the issuing of penalties, including a fine of up to €2,500 or imprisonment for up to 6 months. An exemption from completing the form is in place for providers of essential supply chain services such as hauliers, pilots and maritime staff. A negative result from a COVID-19 Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) test is currently the only test type considered acceptable by Ireland’s public health authorities in relation to international travel. Everyone who has received the second dose of the vaccine more than two weeks prior can meet with other fully vaccinated people from one other household, indoors, without wearing masks or staying two meters apart. Public transport capacity has resumed once again to 50%. Wearing face masks is mandatory in- and outdoors. The recommendation against COVID-19 indicated by the health authorities must be observed all the times. All construction can restart and workers who work outdoors (for example: window cleaning, maintenance work) can return to work. Maximum attendance at funerals will increase to 50 people. In private gardens a maximum of 3 households or 6 people from any number of households can meet again.

Iceland has defined all countries in the world as ​​high risk areas.​ With effect of May 7, 2021, travelers from ​Andorra, France, Netherlands, Croatia, Cyprus, Lithuania, Poland, Spain (except the Canarian Islands), Sweden and ​​Hungary are not​ permitted to travel to Iceland unless exemptions apply​. Moreover third country nationals from Argentina, Bahrein, Cape Verde, Seychelles islands, Serbia, Turkey and Uruguay are not permitted to travel to Iceland as the incidence rate exceeds 700 per 100.000. Generally, all foreign nationals may not travel to Iceland if they are arriving from or have stayed for more than 24 hours in the last 14 days in regions or countries where the 14-day incidence rate exceeds 700 per 100,000. Exempt from this are only Islandic nationals and i.e. passengers travelling for essential reasons (i.e. work, study or ​​​medical reasons). ​ ​​​ ​ From April 6, 2021 Iceland​​'s border is open to all vaccinated and previously infected t​ravelers. This includes travelers from non-Schengen countries and from outside the EEA area. Proof of vaccination or of a prior COVID-19 infection must be presented upon entry.​ ​Generally, all travelers are required to provide a pre-departure negative PCR test which must be taken 72 hours prior to departure. Furthermore, passengers arriving in Iceland are subject to two more PCR tests, including a quarantine of 5 days. One PCR-test must be taken upon arrival and another PCR-test must be taken 5-6 days later. Individuals who can provide proof of having been vaccinated or who can provide proof of a prior COVID-19 infection ​are not required to provide a PCR-test prior to boarding. The same individuals are not required to undergo screening and quarantine measures. ​ 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. ​​ 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 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.​ ​​From May 1, 2021 travel restrictions will be grounded on the EU Traffic Lights map, i.e. effective May 1, 2021 individuals from green and yellow marked areas will not be subject to quarantine measures provided they can provide a negative PCR result at the border. Unnecessary tourist trips to Iceland are not recommended due to existing quarantine regulations. Travelers must complete a registration form prior to leaving for Iceland, which includes but is not limited to: contact details, flight and stay details, as well as information on health status and previous stays.​​ Persons traveling to Iceland may not be picked up at the airport. This includes family members and friends. ​Arrivals to Iceland must take the flybus, a taxi, a rental car or a private car that has been dropped off at the airport.​​

From April 27, 2021, a traveller who needs to quarantine or isolate and comes from or has stayed in a country where there are areas with a 14-day incidence of infection over 700 per 100,000 inhabitants (high-risk area) must stay in quarantine or isolation in a quarantine facility supervised by the government. This applies equally to citizens and residents of Iceland as well as others. When entering from countries where the 14-day incidence is between 500 and 699, accommodation in a quarantine accommodation supervised by the government is generally ordered, but an exemption can be applied for at least two days before entry via the registration form if suitable home quarantine can be proven. When entering from countries where the 14-day incidence is below 500, accommodation in state quarantine accommodation will only be ordered if there is no adequate home accommodation. From April 6, 2021, travelers who enter Iceland and who are not vaccinated and not previously infected have to undergoe a double COVID-testing procedure along with quarantine for 5 to 6 days specified by the government. Quarantine may only be ended after a negative test result has been received. In the event of a positive test result, isolation is mandatory. Children born in 2005 and later are not required to present a certficate of a negative PCR-test upon arrival, however all children are required to undergo one screening test at the border. In case the parent/guardian has to quarantine, the child must also quarantine, however the child's quarantine lifts at the same time as the adult's quarantine, without a second screening test. If a positive test result is found and no suitable home quarantine accommodation can be proven, lodging in a central quarantine accommodation can be arranged. The same applies if certain virus variants are found. For all information concerning COVID-19, contact the Icelandic health authority: +354-544 4113

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.

Due to the current situation in Hungary, even fully vaccinated travelers may be at risk for getting and spreading COVID-19 variants and should avoid all travel to Hungary. Nationwide, the number of new infections has until recently exceeded 200 cases per 100,000 inhabitants over seven days, which is why Hungary is still classified as an area with a particulary high risk of infection. Only Hungarian nationals can enter the country, with very few exceptions to this (e.g. passengers traveling on business). There is a general entry ban for Hungary. 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) participating 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. International air and train traffic generally takes place, but is limited. Cross-border train traffic between Hungary and Serbia and Ukraine is suspended until further notice. 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 result 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.
