Domestic Restrictions

Mandatory requirements to check temperatures and use health apps or scan QR codes to prove travel history are in place at transport hubs, hotels, commercial buildings including restaurants, residential compounds and other locations – such locations are also increasingly needing the use of ‘health kit code’ apps to demonstrate health condition and travel history.
Restrictions on movement and quarantine arrangements remain for travel between different parts of the country. Some cities and provinces need travellers from high to medium risk areas to undergo 14 days of isolation in their place of residence or in centralised observation. Quarantine is enforced at the neighbourhood level and procedures vary, so check in advance.
The possibility that local authorities impose mandatory quarantine in response to fresh outbreaks is high.
China locks down part of Guangzhou amid outbreak of Indian Covid variant.

International Tourists

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

Testing Information

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

Domestic Restrictions

From 6 May, there is further re-opening of society in Denmark.
The Danish Government regularly monitors the risks of COVID-19, and adjusts measures in line with the levels of infection to contain the spread of Coronavirus.
Large gatherings risk increasing the spread of COVID-19. The police therefore regularly take stock of areas where the risk of large gatherings is high.
These areas may be parks and squares. Areas are categorised as either hotspots, warning zones or zones with a ban on loitering depending on the likelihood that many people will gather there. You should currently avoid all of these areas.
The Danish authorities have issued recommendations for travellers using public transport. You must wear a facemask on all public transport, including taxis and ferries and in all public spaces to avoid a fine.

Entry to Denmark is assessed by risk level of the particular country/region you are travelling from. This is categorised by yellow, orange and red ratings. The risk level and whether you are fully vaccinated will determine whether you need to test, self-isolate on entry and whether you need a worthy purpose to enter. Danish authorities will review the risk level weekly.
From 11 June, the UK has an orange rating except for four areas (Blackburn with Darwen, Bolton, Rossendale, Bedford). These four areas in the UK are now rated red due to increased infections from a COVID-19 variant. UK residents in these regions, regardless of vaccination status, will need a worthy purpose to enter Denmark, a PCR test 48 hours prior to entry, a test on arrival and will be required to self-isolate for 10-days, with the option to test to release after four days.

From 7 June 2021, all passengers arriving in, departing from or transiting Ethiopia must validate their COVID-19 RT PCR test via the Africa Union Trusted Travel or UNDP Global Haven systems (you will need to register an account on one of these sites).

Please note: Due to the health and safety requirements placed on government-designated transport providers, there is limited seating capacity and Penguin Travel has a maximum capacity of 40 passengers.

If you are travelling via ferry, you will need to complete a health questionnaire and hand it to the ferry operator before boarding.
The necessary forms will be provided by the operator: you should contact them directly if you need further information. Temperature checks may also be carried out before boarding.

International Tourists

UK nationals are permitted to enter Greece if they are a permanent resident in the UK, Greece, another EU/EFTA state, or in one of the following countries; Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Thailand, Rwanda, Singapore, United Arab Emirates, Russian Federation, United States, Serbia, Israel, North Macedonia, Canada, Belarus, Bahrain, Qatar, China, Kuwait, Ukraine, Saudi Arabia or Bosnia-Herzegovina. If you’re a British national who resides in another country, not listed above, you may be refused entry to Greece due to measures put in place by the Greek authorities to combat the spread of COVID-19.
Anyone travelling to Greece must comply with the Greek authorities’ requirements, including completion of a Passenger Locator Form (PLF) before you travel (both into and out of Greece). Read this section of the travel advice in full and check Greek authorities’ advice to understand how these requirements apply to you.
You must complete an online Passenger Locator Form (PLF) at least 24 hours before your arrival in Greece. The form is in English, and is required whichever way you travel to Greece (including by ferry, road, rail or air). Failure to do so in advance may result in your carrier not allowing you to travel, a 500 Euro fine on arrival or the Greek authorities not allowing you to enter or re-enter the country.
Every traveller, including children, must have their details included on a PLF. If you’re travelling with others outside of your household, you should all complete your own form. If you’re travelling together as a household, the Greek authorities ask for you to complete one form with all adults and children included. You can add additional members of your household at the top of the form before you submit.
Some airlines may require individual PLFs for every traveller over the age of 18 within the same household. Check directly with your airline what you will need to show to be allowed boarding. Remember that you will need to complete PLFs at least 24 hours before your flight.

Testing Information

Arrivals from the UK must provide either; proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test, undertaken within the 72 hour period before arrival into Greece, or proof of two COVID-19 vaccinations completed at least 14 days before travel (see Demonstrating your COVID-19 vaccination status). Travellers with proof of either are exempted from the need to self-isolate on arrival to Greece.
Failure to provide proof of either may result in your carrier not allowing you to travel and will likely result in the Greek authorities refusing you permission to enter Greece.
The exemption from self-isolation detailed above also applies to arrivals from the EU/EFTA states, or one of the following countries; Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Thailand, Rwanda, Singapore, United Arab Emirates, Russian Federation, United States, Serbia, Israel, North Macedonia, Canada, Belarus, Bahrain, Qatar, China, Kuwait, Ukraine, Saudi Arabia, Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The expenses of the accommodation in quarantine hotels are covered by the Greek state. Local authorities will be able to offer further advice on self-isolation requirements.

Hotels, Bars & Restaurants

All hotels are permitted to open, and other types of accommodation, including e.g. Airbnb, private rentals and hostels, are also available. However, you should note that many operators are likely to reduce their offer and close some accommodation during the winter months, particularly in light of measures put in place by the Greek authorities to fight the spread of COVID-19. You should check directly with your accommodation provider in case of related concerns.

However, boarding, quarantine, and testing arrangements for inbound travellers – including fully vaccinated persons (unless they are coming from 'Group B' specified places like Belgium, Canada, Ecuador, Egypt, France, Germany, Indonesia, Russia, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates, the United States of America, among others) – from high-risk countries will remain unchanged.
The government requires mandatory mask-wearing when entering terminals, boarding and while onboard public transport, as well as indoor and outdoor public places. If you are caught violating the mask-wearing regulations, you will get a maximum fine of $10,000.
Since April 20, Hong Kong has banned flights from India, Pakistan, and the Philippines

Local health authorities may use passenger data to carry out contact tracing for passengers arriving from high-risk (orange) countries.

Testing Information

If you are travelling to the Netherlands from a country not on the safe list, you have to present a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of arrival. This applies to passengers arriving directly into the Netherlands from the UK, by all means of transport, including private transportation such as car and motorcycle. The additional rapid test requirement is no longer required for travellers from the UK. If you are travelling via France or Belgium, check FCDO Travel Advice for those countries, as testing requirements and validity differ.
The Dutch government will not accept the results of self-administered tests. This applies to both PCR and the rapid (antigen/LAMP) test requirements. Travellers, including transit passengers, should check the Dutch Government’s website for comprehensive information on testing requirements and exemptions.
Travellers to the Netherlands should self-isolate for 10 days upon arrival with the option of a test to release after 5 days. Quarantine requirements are also applicable to travellers who have been vaccinated. Travellers from countries on the Dutch government’s safe list are exempt from quarantine requirements. The UK is currently not on the safe list; travellers from the UK are therefore strongly recommended to self-quarantine upon arrival.
Extra requirements, including mandatory self-quarantine and a rapid test within 24 hours, are in place for travellers arriving from countries classified as very high-risk. Travellers arriving from these countries not adhering to the self-quarantine requirements, may be fined €435. If you travel to the Netherlands from a country that is on the very high-risk list, you need a completed quarantine declaration form in addition to the required test result(s) and health declaration in case of travel by aeroplane. Not having this form may result in a €95 fine. Upon arrival at your home address or accommodation, you must stay there in quarantine for 10 days. You must also be reachable on the phone number you provided: officials will check. If you do not open the door or answer the phone you may be fined €339. The mandatory guidance applies to travellers arriving by all means of transportation. All information on mandatory quarantine, including exemptions, can be found here.
You may leave quarantine to take a PCR test on day 5 after arriving in the Netherlands. If the result is negative, you can end your self-quarantine that day. If the test result is positive, you need to continue quarantining and you will receive further instructions from the local health authorities. If you do not choose to take a test on day 5, you need to complete 10 days of self-quarantine. See the Dutch government’s website for full details of quarantine requirements.
Testing to end quarantine early is only possible if your stay in the Netherlands is longer than 5 days. If your stay is 5 days or shorter, you should self-isolate for the entire duration of your stay. Even if your test on day 5 is negative, the Dutch government advises you to take extra care and avoid people in higher-risk groups until after day 10.

Hotels, Bars & Restaurants

Outdoor dining at restaurants and cafés is permitted between 6am and 8pm (10pm as of 5 June 2021). Non-essential shops are now open without the need to make a prior appointment.
The Dutch government continues to advise people to avoid busy places. Public venues, including museums, theatres and cinemas, but excluding nightclubs, are open again as of 5 June 2021. Mandatory reservations, health checks and maximum capacity limits are in place for public venues.
Wearing a face mask is compulsory for everyone aged 13 and over in all indoor public spaces.
This includes shops, museums, cafes and theatres. You risk having to pay a €95 fine if you do not wear a face mask as directed.
Foreign tourists are not obliged to reserve their holiday accommodation before travelling to the Netherlands.
More information on visiting the Netherlands as a tourist can be found here and more information on Dutch coronavirus measures can be found here.
Hotels remain open, but room service is unavailable and meals can only be served outdoors between 6am and 8pm if the hotel restaurant has an outdoor seating area.

Events/Mass Gatherings

As of 5 June, up to four people from different households may meet outdoors.
Children under the age of 13 do not count towards this limit.

Domestic Restrictions

As of midday local time on Friday 12 March, the Auckland region has been put under COVID-19 Alert Level 1 restrictions. The whole of New Zealand is now under COVID-19 Alert Level 1 restrictions. Delays and cancellations to transport may still occur, and you should check with your travel provider.
Wearing a face mask on all public transport and domestic flights in New Zealand is legally required at COVID Levels 1 and 2. Physical distancing is recommended in public places. The government also encourages people to keep track of their movements and who they have seen to help with contact tracing. The NZ COVID Tracer app is available to download for this purpose with all shops and businesses displaying their QR codes for scanning.

International Tourists

Quarantine-free travel from Greater Melbourne to New Zealand has been paused. Visa applications and NZeTA requests can still be submitted and will continue to be processed.
The New Zealand border is currently closed to almost all arrivals.
From 11:59pm on 28 April 2021, travellers to New Zealand from very high risk countries are temporarily restricted to New Zealand citizens, their partners, dependent children, the parent of a dependent child who is a New Zealand citizen, and those with significant humanitarian reasons. All non-New Zealand citizens must hold a valid visa to enter New Zealand. Other travellers, including New Zealand residents, can enter only if they spend 14 days outside a very high risk country before their arrival here. Transit through a very high risk country is excluded from the 14-day requirement. See New Zealand Immigration’s (INZ) website for further details.
The following countries currently meet the threshold of being very high risk: Brazil
India
Pakistan
Papua New Guinea
From 19 April 2021 travellers who have been in Australia for 14 days can travel by air to New Zealand without having to enter a managed isolation facility. See the New Zealand government COVID-19 website for details.
To enter New Zealand from a safe zone in Australia travellers must hold a visa or NZeTA, normal immigration rules apply.
Travellers to New Zealand will need to register on the Managed Isolation Allocation System as the first step to securing their place in a managed isolation facility. Before you book your flights, you need to register for a voucher for managed isolation. Your voucher allocates you a place in a managed isolation facility.
Quarantine free travel
For New Zealand, quarantine-free travel is available on commercial aircraft only. It is currently with Australia and the Cook Islands only.
Quarantine-free travel between New Zealand and the Cook Islands does not include those travelling from Australia to New Zealand.
When entering New Zealand from a quarantine free travel zone, normal visa conditions remain. If you are a temporary visa holder in New Zealand, you should be aware that you need to meet New Zealand immigration requirements in order to return to New Zealand.
This means you need to have a ‘multiple entry’ visa that gives permission to leave New Zealand and return, provided all entry requirements are met.
Border rules including eligibility criteria can change quickly.
Travellers must prepare for disruption to their plans.
Between New Zealand and Australia
From midnight on 31 May 2021, if you are flying to New Zealand from Australia you must return a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of departure if you have been in the State of Victoria on or after 20 May 2021.
If you have been in the State of Victoria since 7:59pm on 25 May 2021 you cannot fly to New Zealand at all due to the travel pause currently in place.
