When can I travel to Europe? The latest travel rules

"Оптимизм - это доктрина, утверждающая, что все прекрасно, включая безобразное, все хорошо, особенно плохое, и все правильно, в том числе неправильное… Доктрина эта передается по наследству, однако, к счастью, не заразна." Амброз Бирс ©

Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, countries have clamped down on border control and introduced strict travel measures. But as the rate of infection slows down in Europe, governments are gradually preparing to loosen restrictions as plans for when we can travel again are put in place.

The Foreign Office gave the go ahead for non-essential trips on 4 July. A list of more than 50 countries was also released that were exempt from the current quarantine rules from 10 July. This means travellers visiting the select list of countries won’t need to self-isolate for 14-days upon return to the UK.
