Latest Travel News 7th February 2022
It’s Monday, the start of another week and the resurgence of the travel industry continues! Here is the latest news from the travel and holiday industry which should be a must read for anyone who wants to one day return to the beaches and get that well overdue tan. 

Australia announces plans to reopen its border 

The Australian government has announced that its borders will reopen to vaccinated international travellers from February 21st. Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said: “If you’re double vaccinated, we look forward to welcoming you back.” However the rules will differ depending on which state you travel to. Vaccinated travellers entering most Australian states will need a negative PCR test three days before their flight – or a supervised rapid test 24 hours before departure – to be exempt from any quarantine. Unvaccinated travellers who have a medical exemption will still need to apply for a travel exemption and will be required to quarantine at a hotel if successful. However Western Australia is expected to keep in place its arrival caps and 14-day quarantine rules. 

Don’t get caught out by Covid travel rules

Travellers need to be aware of Covid vaccination rules ahead of the half term holiday period as countries continue to update their requirements regularly. As reported in The Guardian, France joined Spain and Denmark last week in requiring anyone who had their second dose more than 270 days ago to have a booster to enter the country – or be considered unvaccinated. Likewise, those who had their second dose before May 2021 may find in some other countries that although they should be able to get through border checks, they will face restrictions on entering restaurants and indoor venues. Travellers are urged to check all requirements before they travel to ensure they are not caught out. 

Morocco borders reopen today 

Morocco has reopened to international arrivals from today. Arrivals need to be fully vaccinated including children over the age of 12. It is also required to take a PCR test 48 hours before departure. Children aged six to 11 don’t require proof of vaccination but will need a negative PCR test result. Those under six won’t require either. International arrivals have been banned since November last year so this is welcomed news for both UK travellers and the tourist industry in Morocco, which was the 4th most popular destination for UK travellers in 2019.
