Two European countries scrap all Covid restrictions for Brits ahead of the Easter holidays
POLAND and Sweden are the latest countries to scrap all their Covid restrictions, in a boost to Brits heading abroad for the Easter holidays.
There are now no Covid entry requirements for any tourists visiting either country, regardless of their vaccination status.
Brits no longer need to show any proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test, or quarantine on arrival.
On Poland, the Foreign Office website states: "The obligation to undergo quarantine on arrival in Poland has been lifted. There is also no longer a requirement to demonstrate your vaccination status on arrival.
"A pre-departure test is no longer required for travellers arriving from non-Schengen countries, which includes the UK."
On Sweden, the Foreign Office website states: "As of April 1, 2022, people travelling to Sweden from the UK or other countries outside the EU/EEA will no longer be required to present a negative Covid test or proof of vaccination."
