These EU countries are completely open

In time for peak booking and travel season, many EU countries (and the UK) have removed Covid-19 travel restrictions entirely for non-EU travelers (many are unrestricted for residents of the EU for some time). Others, however, still have European travel restrictions in place.

Here is a list of EU countries (plus the UK) that are free of travel restrictions in April 2022.

Denmark – restrictions removed in March

As announced on the government’s website, there are “no Covid-19 related restrictions on entry to Denmark” in public areas or at borders.

However, private facilities are free to set their own certification requirements – and face masks are still mandatory in medical facilities.

Hungary – travel is unlimited again

Since Monday March 7, “travel to Hungary is unlimited again”, which means that there is no longer any need for vaccination or immunity certificates, or any kind of test or obligation to quarantine.

Iceland – the borders are open

There are no longer travel restrictions at the Icelandic border, whether travelers have been vaccinated or not. Since Friday February 25, it is no longer necessary to pre-register before arriving, to take pre-departure or arrival tests, nor to self-quarantine.

Ireland-restrictions stopped in March

As of March 6, there are no longer any travel restrictions for travelers arriving in Ireland, so travelers to Ireland are not required to show proof of vaccination, proof of recovery or a PCR test result negative upon arrival.

There are no more post-departure tests to take or quarantine for anyone and no one to complete a passenger locator form.

As reported in Politics, Prime Minister Micheál Martin announced earlier in January that public places such as stadiums, cinemas and pubs could – for the first time in almost 2 years – operate at full capacity, without the use of vaccine certificates and without the need for social distancing. St. Patrick’s Day was held on March 17 this year without any restrictions, for the first time since 2019.

Netherlands – travel restrictions lifted in March

As reported by euro newsthe Dutch government has announced that from March 23, anyone can enter the country without showing proof of a negative Covid-19 test result, a vaccination certificate or a recovery document.

Norway – travel restrictions removed in February

The Norwegian government has lifted the Covid-19 travel requirement of having to have a negative Covid-19 test result before entry and registering trips via online forms. This has been the case since Saturday February 12, 2022 where visitors “can travel to Norway without having to worry about anything but having a good time!”

Poland – all restrictions lifted in March

Since March 25, the Polish government has lifted travel restrictions to enter the country, which means that there is no longer a requirement to show certificates or test results at the border and that quarantine is no longer necessary.

Romania – all restrictions removed

Since March 9, the Romanian government has allowed unrestricted entry into the country without any documentation regarding vaccination or otherwise.

Interior Minister Nicolae Lucian Bode said “I thank the Romanians for the responsibility they have shown because they have understood to respect the rules of health protection and have chosen to be vaccinated, thus limiting the spread of the Covid pandemic”.

Slovenia – travel restrictions lifted in February

As of February 19, 2022, Slovenia had no Covid-19 travel restrictions to enter. This means that “the RVT (recovered/vaccinated/tested) condition no longer has to be met at the border and travelers will no longer be required to quarantine at home”.

Sweden: lifting of the entry ban in April

Since April 1, Sweden has not banned third countries (from outside the EU) from entering the country for non-essential travel, meaning there are currently no restrictions Covid-19 travel kits in place.

Since February 9, EU residents/citizens can travel to Sweden without restriction, but now that it has been extended, no one has to quarantine or test themselves before entering the country, regardless of their vaccination status.

UK–fully open for Easter

The UK has removed all Covid-19 travel restrictions on entering the country, so now anyone can enter England whether vaccinated or not. And there is no need to complete a passenger locator form or test before or on arrival and there is no quarantine. While countries are still divided into red and green, there are currently no countries on the red list.
