Full list of countries to accept vaccinated travellers – from Cyprus to Iceland

Thanks to the coronavirus vaccine, it has given fresh hope for travellers who want to get away this summer.

Now a number of countries have revealed they will welcome vaccinated tourists and even exempt them from quarantine and testing.

Iceland, Cyprus and Greece are some who have unveiled plans to welcome back tourists with certain criteria to meet.

The current travel advice states it is illegal for Brits to go on holidays abroad with people required to provide a valid reason.

Either way the news of allowing vaccinated travellers will provide fresh hope for those who want to go abroad this year.

Here are a number of countries who have said vaccinated travellers will be welcomed back and whether Brits are included.


Iceland said it won't require travellers to quarantine if they've had the coronavirus vaccine.

But travellers must undergo a PCR test upon arrival followed by a 5-6 day quarantine, and then a second screening.

Now the new policy means travellers with a Covid-19 vaccination certificate won't need to undergo screenings or self-isolation.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Iceland said UK vaccine certificates are currently being validated by the WHO.

The Seychelles

The tourism authorities in Seychelles said the country will be welcoming vaccinated visitors from "any part of the world".

Anyone who receives the vaccination will need to wait for two weeks before they're allowed onto the island.

There will be entry requirements for vaccinated visitors, like proof of the two doses and a negative Covid-19 test result.

Borders will remain closed to visitors who haven't received the jab or who aren't travelling from the list of approved countries.

It is believed the Seychelles has closed its borders to anyone travelling from the UK.


The country's Minister of Tourism Harry Theoharis said Greece hopes to welcome back tourists from May 14.

There is no need to show proof of a Covid-19 vaccine to enter, but you'll need to have a negative test before travel.

Brits will be able to travel to Greece from May, but only if it's permitted to leave the UK then.

The country hopes to introduce a new policy where vaccinated travellers will not need to undergo testing and quarantine rules.

From May 1, this includes fully vaccinated Brits with cases of showing proof you've received your second dose at least a week before.

Deputy Tourism Minister Savvas Perdios said: "We have informed the British government from May 1 we will facilitate the arrival of British nationals who have been vaccinated… so they can visit Cyprus without a negative test or needing to quarantine."


Romania has announced travellers who have been vaccinated will be exempt from quarantine measures.

But they will need to have received both doses of the vaccine and arrive in Romania more than 10 days after the second.


Poland has lifted a mandatory 10-day self-isolation for travellers who have taken the jab if they can provide proof of their vaccination.

Quarantine is also lifted for visitors who have proof of a negative test taken within 48 hours before crossing the Polish border.

Brits will be allowed to fly to Poland once the UK's ban on international travel has been lifted.
