European Countries Tighten Travelling Measures over Omicron Variant

France, Switzerland, and Greece have tightened travelling restrictions in the hope of curbing the spread of the Omicron variant.

All travelers visiting France for non-essential reasons must be vaccinated and provide a negative PCR test. Unvaccinated adults can only enter the country for essential reasons, and in addition to a negative PRC test, they must also self-isolate for seven days upon entering France.

Meanwhile, Greece has temporarily banned non-essential travel from a number of countries, although Albanian citizens and residents are exempt. They can enter Greece provided they have filled an online application and have been vaccinated, or can show a negative PCR test.

Switzerland has made negative PCR tests mandatory for all travelers, even if they have been vaccinated. In addition, visitors must submit to a second COVID-19 test within four to seven days from entering the country.
