As the Omicron situation evolves, the UK is once again on some countries’ ‘naughty lists’. Here is our guide to where you can go, now, and what hoops you might have to jump through to get there.

Recently, the UK government announced a change for inbound travellers to the UK; fully vaccinated travellers no longer need to provide a Day 2 PCR test result upon arrival or a pre-departure test. All that’s needed is a home Day 2 LFT which can cost from as little as £12. Furthermore, the government also removed all countries from the UK’s red list on the 15th December, meaning no visitors or returning travellers need to quarantine in a government facility upon arrival to the UK. 

Our ‘hoop rating’, ranging from one hoop (easy) to three hoops (difficult) will let you easily decide which destinations may be the best option for your next trip. 

As always, this list is up to date when originally published, and we will try to keep it updated as often as possible. However, be aware that this information is constantly changing, and we advise to look at the official FCDO website here for the most up-to-date information, and always triple check before booking or undertaking travel. 

 

Recent changes

UK visitors will find it difficult to travel (except for essential reasons and/or have to quarantine) to the following:

  • France (allowed for residents and citizens – expected to ease for tourists soon)     
  • The Netherlands (10 days quarantine)
  • Qatar (pre-departure PCR test within 72 hours of their arrival in Qatar, with a negative result. 2 day hotel quarantine (including unvaccinated children aged 11 or under), where a PCR test will be conducted until negative result received). Those looking to transit in Qatar need to check the requirements with their carrier. 
  • Morocco (all flights suspended until 31 January)
  • Singapore
  • Hong Kong
  • Japan
  • Thailand (except Phuket Sandbox scheme and those with a Thailand Pass QR code)

That being said, it seems that most countries are reluctant to re-impose travel restrictions despite the increase in Omicron cases across the globe. Already restrictions have been relaxed in several instances (such as France). Keep an eye on this list, as it is likely to change quite rapidly and you may find that some of these countries further relax their restrictions in the near future.

Read onwards to find out which countries you can visit now, and what you need to know before you go.

Cancun beach, Mexico

Our hoop rating: 1 hoop

Entry requirements: Those wishing to travel to Mexico must register on the Mexico Vuela Seguro Platform before boarding your flight and show the QR code upon arrival at the airport.

* This has been confirmed by recent traveller and reader Nigel, who stated that ‘nothing was asked for on arrival except for the regular immigration form. The health declaration is pretty simple!’. Cheers Nigel!

Antigua & Barbuda

Antigua

Our hoop rating: 2 hoops

The BIMSafe app can also be used. Visitors also need to provide a negative PCR test, taken at any time during the 3 days prior to arrival. 

If you have recovered from recently diagnosed COVID-19 and your pre-flight PCR test is still positive, you should bring a letter from your medical practitioner with lab test results showing the date of diagnosis and recovery. You may be obliged on arrival to complete an assessment at one of the government isolation facilities for up to 48 hours before being released from quarantine.

Notes: Barbados have strict COVID protocols and testing facility requirements: check here before travelling to ensure a smooth arrival.  If you test positive for COVID-19 at any point during your stay in Barbados you will be required to self-isolate. You will first be assessed by a member of staff from the government isolation facilities for 24 hours. You may be transferred to the Government’s quarantine facility, Harrison’s Point, for further assessment and treatment. You can stay there for no cost until you have recovered. Conditions at the government quarantine facilities are generally very basic – shared rooms and bathrooms! (It’s like military barracks).

Asia

The Maldives

The Hilton, Maldives

Our hoop rating: 1 hoop

Temperature checks and screening procedures will also be in place on arrival.

Notes: All visitors to Maldives are encouraged to install the contact tracing application ‘Trace Ekee’ upon or before arrival into the country. A reader has let us know that the Maldives still may enforce quarantine for those who are deemed ‘close contacts’, even if a negative test result is received. 

 

Thailand 

Railay beach in Krabi, Thailand

Our hoop rating: 3 hoops

The previous Thailand Pass system is closed for new registrations but those who have already applied and get approved should be able to travel if their pass is approved. Registration for the Thailand Pass under the Phuket Sandbox and Alternative Quarantine programs remains open.

Entry requirements: The Sandbox program allows fully vaccinated travellers to enter Thailand without extensive quarantine. It’s not without its hoops to jump through because as well as applying for the Thailand pass, departure and post-arrival testing, travellers are required to stay at specific hotels SHA Extra Plus for the first seven days in Phuket. These are government-approved hotels that meet enhanced health and safety standards. These can make them more pricey than normal. 

After arriving you will need to:

  • PCR test twice – once at  SHA Extra Plus hotel 
  • On days 5-6, you will need to have paid for a second test at government-designated facilities. This needs to be paid for before applying for your Thailand Pass. 

The pre-departure hoops include a vaccination certificate, a pre-arrival negative PCR test result, prepaid 7-night’s accommodation in an approved hotel, and an insurance policy with coverage no less than US$50,000.

You can then continue onward throughout Thailand without quarantine after those first 7 days.

Notes: Thailand has agreed to the reopening of three more Sandbox destinations from 11 January — Krabi, Phang-Nga and Surat Thani (Ko Samui, Ko Pha-ngan and Ko Tao)—in addition to the original Phuket Sandbox. 

You can read one readers experience of the Phuket Sandbox here.

There’s more official information here

 

Cambodia (coming soon)

Our hoop rating: 2 hoops

Entry requirements: All visitors to Cambodia must provide a negative PCR test result no older than 72 hours prior to departure/boarding. You must also demonstrate your full vaccination status to avoid quarantine.  

All foreigners arriving in Cambodia will also be subject to a COVID-19 test on arrival (as well as requiring a COVID negative test before flying) depending on their vaccination status. Vaccinated travellers will be required to do a lateral flow test at the port of entry and wait for 15 to 20 minutes for the result.

Notes: All visitors from the UK to Cambodia do need to get a Visa before travelling – you can apply for one online. Health insurance is no longer mandatory but all foreign travellers are encouraged to purchase COVID-19 health insurance that includes a minimum of US$50,000 for medical cover through the Forte Insurance website. This evidence should be printed in colour.

 

Sri Lanka (coming soon)

  1. Where do you get a Day 2 LFT for £12?? Not by following the link!

  2. Traveller 69 | 12 January 2022 at 6:11 am |

    Switzerland please?

  3. Thailand now has additional sandbox schemes effective 11th Jan . Eg) Samui sandbox is back

  4. Cambodia please

    • Hey Pete, thanks for the suggestion! Stay tuned and we shall add it in over the next 24 hours. Cheers

  5. Nicholas Bradshaw | 12 January 2022 at 6:51 am |

    Hi there. Can you clarify the testing requirement for Portugal. Their website says a Supervised lateral flow test within 48 hours of departure not arrival. Which is correct?

    • Stay tuned, we shall look deeper and update. It can be quite confusing, lots of websites saying different things!

  6. Mark Collins | 12 January 2022 at 7:00 am |

    Colombia never seems to get a mention. No tests to get in just double vax and fill in a form. Great beaches on Caribbean coast and interesting islands, great parks and culture. Off there on the 29th Jan after cancelling Phuket as it is a total faff doing the sandbox thing.
    Don’t be put off by its past reputation you won’t get shot/kidnapped by the cartel!

    • Columbia is literally right at the top of my list! We just kept it simple to start – it’s quite a long article – but we shall add it in. Thanks for the tip 😉

  7. Suzanne Tait | 12 January 2022 at 7:07 am |

    Canada are now saying they will PCR test everyone on arrival and you must quarantine until you get the result.

  8. Janice Clark | 12 January 2022 at 7:07 am |

    Antigua? Popular at this time of year we are due to go in 18 days and not sure whether to go or not??

    • Oooh, lucky duck! Stay tuned, we will check it all out for you and add it in within the next 24 hours.

  9. The Germany rating should be 3 hoops for families with young children.
    Unvaccinated kids must quarantine for 5 days, even if parents are fully vaccinated.

    • Thanks so much for that, we have added that info in. Definitely worth considering when travelling with kids!

  10. I love the hoop ratings! So easy to follow.

  11. No mention of South Africa? After the damage the UK government caused in December, the least Brits can do is go and spend some money there enjoying the sunshine!

    • Haha yes! Poor buggers. Do you have plans to visit? Stay tuned, we will be adding that one in over the next 24 hours. Thanks so much for the suggestion.

  12. I am keen to know where the £12 LFT tests are from as the cheapest I have seen is £17. Also do Switzerland accept a home test LFT 24 hrs pre departure or does it have to be supervised. Thanks

  13. Sarah Heynen | 12 January 2022 at 7:54 am |

    Like the hoop rating. What about Dubai?

  14. Toby Stanbrook | 12 January 2022 at 8:15 am |

    Please include Sri Lanka. Should be two hoops, I think, as despite being fully vaccinated, you still need a supervised PCR before departure.

    • Sure, sounds good! We shall add it in 🙂

      • Toby Stanbrook | 13 January 2022 at 5:19 pm |

        Thanks for that. We were in SL for Xmas and New Year. We (funnily enough) flew to SL from Bangkok on 20 Dec and at the time, had to take a supervised pre-departure PCR. It seems the need for a supervised PCR has been removed, but all passengers now need to fill out a Health Declaration Form and prove insurance coverage. That may make SL a single hoop destination.
        Local people glad to see tourists. They all wore face masks – properly – at all moments, but social distancing is not observed, especially in queues!

  15. I have been trying to find out if a Covid Recovery Certificate would be an acceptable alternative to a negative PCR test result to enter South Africa from the UK. Any ideas? Thanks

    • Hey Val, we will be adding South Africa into the article over the next 24 hours so make sure to check back! Thanks so much for the comment 🙂

  16. Turkey?

  17. Hi, anyone know about Langkawi? I know they have a travel bubble but the current setup is that you have to book through an agent in Malaysia approved by the Malaysia Tourism Authority. I have a holiday booked in March – postponed twice since 2020 – the flights are booked direct with Qatar and the accommodation booked via a UK agent (I can’t get a refund but can only keep changing the dates). I had heard that this requirement might change in Jan – but doesn’t look to have happened yet.

  18. wing It one world | 12 January 2022 at 10:02 am |

    On the Ireland piece you have links to Gibraltar tourist board???

    Simply test me.co.uk do lateral flow for 12 quid, great customer service too.

    However government own website now offers for 9.89. I’m sure they will keep coming down in price.

    • Whoops…typo! Thanks for that. And thanks heaps for the info about testing – will be fantastic if they keep dropping in price!

  19. David Jenkins | 12 January 2022 at 10:08 am |

    Is transit through Qatar hoop free?

    • We shall check for you – stay tuned! Will update the article shortly

    • Hey David, have just checked for you – this is what the foreign office has to say:
      Transit passengers travelling on to another destination can still transfer through Qatar, and many flights continue to operate.
      We take that to mean that you are not subject to QATAR entry requirements, and rather those implemented by your carrier. Does that help?

  20. Could you clarify The Maldives please? We are due to go in 9 days, the guidance on the PCR test reads to me that’s it’s 96 hours before DEPARTURE, not arrival as you’ve stated. Thanks.

    • Sure thing Jack, you are correct and it is 96 hours prior to departure. We have updated the article. Also – LUCKY DUCK! Have an amazing time – where are you staying over there? Would love to hear about it when you get back.

  21. Just got back from Cancun, Mexico and can report that nothing was asked for on arrival except for the regular immigration form. The health declaration is pretty simple (certainly compared to ours in the UK) anyway.

    • Thanks so much for that confirmation! We have added your comment into our article, hope that is ok. Mexico has been incredibly relaxed the whole time, haven’t they. Did you have a great trip, and were there any other issues visitors might need to know about?

      • Yes, the trip was great (BA from LGW)! Mask wearing everywhere and regular temperature checks entering hotels and shops were the only impositions to enjoy the sunshine.

  22. Can you tell me the hoop rating for Dubai please. Travelling beginning of March.. Thank you

    • Yes, Dubai will be added shortly – stay tuned! Thanks for the suggestion, hope you have a fantastic trip 🙂

  23. Rex I Leyland | 12 January 2022 at 11:39 am |

    Do you have any relevant entry [hoops] info re. Uruguay??
    Thanks

    • We can definitely check it out for you! Stay tuned, we will get back to you/update the article within the next 24 hours. Thanks for the suggestion 🙂

  24. Whilst I know you’re focusing on entry requirements the quarantine situation in these countries is useful. For example the Maldives still quarantines for close contacts (even if you test negative!!) so that could be an expensive 10 day room bill…

  25. Dante labs were excellent last autumn for day 2 LFT for arriving back in the UK. Sadly they seem to have stopped selling those kits.

    We need some decent TP run destinations and offers! Fares ex EU are still v expensive

  26. India! It’s three hoops for sure…

  27. gordon chalker | 12 January 2022 at 7:46 pm |

    Hi,
    I am due to fly to Mumbai in 3 weeks and atm it is a no go area and still waiting for BA to contact me. I’ve been trying to call them for 4 days without luck. Very frustrating.

    • It’s easiest to try Twitter or phone at 8am when they open or try another country’s BA office.
