Re: Covid vaccine and travel

Which are the new "danger" places? As far as I know according to the Swiss gov, countries with a "worrying variant" were India, Nepal and United Kingdom.

oh, the IATA website seems to have different data, neither India nor UK is marked as "totally restrictive". I guess it's the other way then, the "totally restrictive" countries ban all inbound traffic. I got the link to the website from online booking app. Since it's COVID-19 map I thought it shows the places with the dangerous variants.

Re: Covid vaccine and travel

Interestingly enough, Americans can travel to Europe and, if vaccinated, will be able to travel to Canada in a two weeks. However, foreign tourists will be continued to be banned from entering the US for at least another month.

For those desperate to enter, I have spoken to a Swiss who came in after spending two weeks in Mexico so there seems to be a loophole.

There is, and it's one which has been commented on Z list UK celebs. During the first 2 lockdowns, loads of 'celebs' moved over to Dubai for a few months. Midway through the 2nd lockdown, this got pretty much shut down, so they all shipped over to Mexico.

This needs to be cancelled. Switzerland is over 90% delta now. Only a couple of weeks away from the UK being at lower numbers than Switzerland

I wonder if it's due to the fact that Basel airport is in France? Maybe they check everyone who lands in Zürich?
Nope , I came back from Spain about a week ago and landed in Zurich . No checks whatsoever on the Swiss side .

The checks in Alicante basically consisted of making everybody stand in a queue in a space that was too small for social distancing and then waving them through when they realized they didn’t have time to check everybody

It is a legitimate way to enter the US. You could also go cheaper and stay two weeks in Croatia before flying to the US.
