UK TO CH Travel possibilities in Corona times

Doing some research covering the period of around 1 year, since July 2020-June 2021 and travel between CH and UK/Wales during this period for the purposes of reunitinig with children (for any length of time) and whether this was at any point possible as have opposite assertions that it was not, without the quarantine at either end.

Anyone knows first hand or knows if there is such data publicly available?

All advice greatfully received.

Re: UK TO CH Travel possibilities in Corona times

I don't know if there is any UK "Quarantine list history", the Swiss publish all previous lists https://www.bag.admin.ch/bag/en/home...nde/liste.html.

I went to the UK for a weekend early August 2020, no tests or quarantine were required.

Re: UK TO CH Travel possibilities in Corona times

There was a window in July/August last year (maybe as early as June) where it was possible to visit the UK without quarantine or tests at either end.

Yep... quarantine restrictions were lifted on 10th June 2020 for people arriving from Europe.

We were also on holiday in Wales for the first two weeks of August, and did not have to take tests or quarantine in either direction. I think things tightened up again in September.

They tightened up on August 27th, the day our grandsons were born which put paid to our planned trip over.

Re: UK TO CH Travel possibilities in Corona times

I haven't visited my 96 year old father since the beginning of August last year, which was pretty much the last window when both the UK and CH were mutually open.
I'm now dual-vaccinated, which gives me hassle-free travel to some neighbouring countries, but the UK doesn't recognize vaccines yet. Hopefully sometime this summer the UK will come out of its BREXIT huff and let people back into the country again.

Not letting vaccinated people in Europe in is mad. They've got herd immunity already from the variants here already (or at least they are very close) - over 80% of British adults have antibodies.
