Boost for half term breaks as tests cut and teens to get Covid passes

Double boost for half term breaks: Teenagers will be able to get Covid passes for holidays and dreaded tests for fully-vaccinated travellers are to come to an end

  • Teenagers to be allowed Covid passes for foreign travel over half-term break
  • ‘Fully vaccinated’ 12 to 15-year-olds will be eligible to download digital jab proof
  • And Covid tests are set to be axed for inoculated passengers flying into Britain
  • Teenagers will be able to get Covid passes for holidays abroad and testing requirements for fully jabbed travellers will be dropped early next month.

    In a double-boost for half-term holidays expected to be announced tomorrow, 12- to-15-year-olds will be able to download the digital proof of vaccination, making travel in countries that require Covid certification easier. The changes will come in early February.

    There will no longer be any requirement for a Covid test for passengers flying into Britain, provided they have had their jabs.

    While under-18s remain exempt from showing Covid passes in the UK, venues in フランス, スイス, ギリシャ, ドイツ, Austria and Cyprus require children over 12 to show proof of vaccination, a recent negative COVID-19 test or proof of recovery from the virus.

    Teenagers will now be able to download their pass either through the NHS app or website.

    A Government source said it will save families an ‘administrative nightmare’, while dropping the testing requirement will ‘make holiday admin much more manageable’.

    現在のところ, fully jabbed travellers have to book and pay for a Covid latest flow test which they take on arrival. Unvaccinated travellers will still need to take a test after arriving in Britain.

    今月上旬, testing rules introduced as a result of the Omicron variant that required a PCR test on arrival were scrapped, as well as self-isolation requirements for fully jabbed travellers.

    In an additional boost for half-term and Easter breaks, Ministers are pushing to safeguard those with pre-booked holidays from being required to show proof of a booster vaccine in order to avoid the restrictions on the unvaccinated.
