THE UK is enforcing a 14-day quarantine for anyone entering the country, along with other destinations in Europe.

This means anyone trying to enter Britain from June 8, be it tourists or citizens, will need to self-isolate for a two week period.

France has warned they will follow the UK's example of the 14-day quarantine, while Greece are offering checks but still enforcing seven to 14 days of self-isolation.

While the UK isn't the only country introducing the strict measures other countries are looking at alternative methods to allow people to continue travelling.

Temperature checks and coronavirus checks are all being offered instead to passengers arriving at the airport.

It is worth noting, however, that a positive result of the coronavirus is likely to result in an enforced quarantine.

While you will have to quarantine when returning to the UK from next week, here are some of the countries you won't need to quarantine in when visiting.


Portugal's PM Antonio Costa has said Brits planning to go holiday to areas like the Algarve will not be quarantined.

Mr Costa said no parts of mainland Portugal had made people self-isolate when they entered the country and that policy would continue.

This also includes Madeira, who allow tourists to enter who have a negative coronavirus test within 72 hours.


While Spain is currently enforcing a compulsory two-week quarantine, this is to be lifted from June 21 onwards.

Anyone then entering the country will not be forced to self-isolate for two weeks.

This might not include Brits however – Spanish Transport Minister Jose Abalos said the quarantine requirements will only be lifted earlier than the planned July 1 date so test runs can take place involving holidaymakers from countries with low coronavirus contagion rates.


Italy is lifting their quarantine restrictions from June 3, which includes the UK.

Travellers won't be required to self-isolate for weeks when entering the country "providing that for the 14 days prior to their arrival in Italy, they were physically located in their country of departure".


Keflavík Airport in Iceland is checking anyone that enters the country with a free coronavirus test from June 15

Working with the National University Hospital of Iceland, passengers who test negative can then enter the country straight away.

Travellers can also prove they do not have the virus with a medical certificate and a tracking app will need to be used during the duration of the stay.


Vienna Airport is offering passengers coronavirus tests upon landing, which take three to six hours.

The test costs £166 per person which, if negative, negates the need to quarantine for two weeks.

If not, the person will need to self-isolate for two weeks.
