Will holidays resume on May 17th with Vaccine Passports

Will holidays resume on May 17th with Vaccine Passports?

The news that we’ve all been waiting for appears to be almost upon us – there’s hope that international travel can resume from May 17.

Holidays are being booked up by UK citizens now the green light for the end of lockdown has been given, but what is the latest travel advice from the Foreign Office?

The big news this week comes from Greece. The beautiful Mediterranean country has updated its entry requirements for testing on arrival. It comes following hints the nation may be open to the use of vaccine passports in the future. Greece is in talks with the UK over allowing Britons carrying a vaccine passport to travel to its tourist hotspots from May despite concerns in Brussels and other EU capitals.

Although non-essential travel including holidays are not permissible at the moment, it’s speculated that Boris Johnson’s roadmap out of lockdown could see international travel return as soon as May 17 using vaccine passports. Greece’s tourism minister, said he hoped to dovetail with Boris Johnson’s roadmap for allowing Britons to travel but refused to be drawn on whether Greece would break with Brussels to establish the scheme.

The Foreign Office is yet to make a statement on this, but with covid cases significantly falling throughout the UK and across Europe, its a fair assumption that holidays will finally be available this summer.
