most places I’ve seen exempt Children from the requirements. The exact ages vary. In some places Children over 12-13 need to have a negative PCR test if not vaccinated.

If they fly into the Algarve and drive over to Malaga they will have a stamp entering Portugal only. Similarly if they fly into Lisbon and book a self connected flight they could fly on to a range of countries.

Hi,

Is there a 24hr "grace" period when entering the UK? I go for my medical revalidation at LGW, and return to Spain, rarely stay more than 10 hrs in the UK.
Last year the quarentine conditions used to apply AFTER the first 24hrs, thus allowing passengers to transfer on UK stopovers, and folks like me to visit the doctor.

Thanks

Never seen any mention of that I'm afraid.

I don’t believe so. As far as I’m aware you can leave isolation for medical appointments but you are not exempt from testing requirements so you’ll still need the pre-departure test and to book the day 2 and day 8 tests even if you won’t use them.

Yes, aware of that. My only points were with regard to the GIB situation as the border is so close to the Airport Terminal. Flights to LGW, LTN, MAN, BHX, EDI, SOU and LCY all due to start during the next month or so.

Jersey

Just looked at a short trip trip to Jersey and on UK gov web site we are allowed to travel within the UK without restrictions, but then look on Jersey gov web site and it states that upon arrival you must take a test which is free and self isolate for approx 12 hrs until result is provided, then you are not allowed to leave the island for 72 hrs
It's all a total shambles, and UK mainland is on traffic light system so goes by your postcode you can live in a green area but work in amber or red, but that doesn't matter you can still travel but the opposite way round and it's the same as international travel into UK

Jersey is a crown dependancy,

it isnt part of the UK (or Great Britian), its only part of the Britsh Isles.

Its therefore free to set its own rules for entry..

What’s so shambolic? Jersey is not part of the U.K. and is self-governed. They can set the rules as they please.

The aim of this thread was to discuss new routes that might be opened up to comply with the UK green list
Could I encourage those who wish to discuss devolution and whether Govt should act at a local or national level to pick an appropriate thread instead ?

I believe that the Scottish list will be announced tomorrow but will come into force from the 24th.

Scratch Israel off the list as war breaks out in Jerusalem again.

From 28th May, Jersey will move all of England, Wales and Scotland to their green list meaning you just need a free test on arrival and no quarantine.

ECDC have published their weekly data for the EU
Malta continues to improve Covid case levels... perhaps time for airlines to create plans to significantly increase UK-Malta capacity in 2 weeks time ?

Finland is also showing good data, but Finnish Govt seems really quite reluctant to admit those who are neither citizens or residents. Plus, the weather isn't exactly Mediterranean

I would suggest routes to Albania might be opened (they have some appealing beaches) but not sure about how reliable data is, nor how extensive testing or genomic sequencing is. Seven nights in Albania might be a bit of a hard sell for Fred and Dawn who live in Bedford

I suspect the Govt will stick to its dates as for announcements - so roughly at 3 week intervals with perhaps a couple of countries announced around month-end for opening up a week or so later etc etc

I think Finland and Norway are good bets for being added but neither want outsiders in at the moment. Finland is difficult even for EU citizens to visit.

Otherwise I think this farce will continue until the gov realises everyone is going anyway.

The airlines obviously expect people to travel to Amber countries given the increase in routes.

Atlantic Airways to restart their route from Vagar in the Faroe Islands to Edinburgh on 1 July.
The Faroe Islands (on the UK's green list) have made very clear that tourists are not welcome right now. I'm wondering if that might change by July

Admittedly Vagar-Edinburgh is never going to be a major route but better it be open than closed

Spain has announced that Brits won’t require a test to travel to Spain (even if not vaccinated) from 20th May. This might help some traveling there. Even though it is an Amber country I expect many with second homes or family will still go there.

Some parts of Norway are experiencing a significant upswing in COVID cases at the moment. I work with clients in Skien and they are now in a regional lockdown, with non-essential retail, bars, schools etc. all presently closed.

Seems Portugal might be extending its restrictions for U.K. holidaymakers until the end of the month.
