Hopefully all this pre-return testing will be scrapped next week along with all the remaining rules?
For those who are not fully vaccinated?

Well if they are ending 'all' Covid measures, then I'm assuming that includes needing any form of Covid test when returning to England?

Will be great if that's the case. Haven't seen anything on it. I think the requirement (for those that are not fully vaccinated) to test before travel and take a day 2 will continue for a while (is there any strong incentive/rationale or community advocating for change?).

Costa Rica is potentially an option too after they recently relaxed their entry restrictions. Looks like some venues can operate with higher capacity if they only accept vaccinated individuals.

Not sure whether that's everywhere and it's pretty normal (probably not a fun trip if you're not allowed in to bars, restaurants, etc...). Might be that capacity isn't an issue so nowhere checks and you'll be fine.

Having been there a few months ago, my experience was that everything is operating pretty close to "normal" regardless of what official protocols and rules may well be. Same for Mexico.

Costa Rica has, or at least had, more onerous insurance requirements than Mexico did, if that is a factor for the OP.

No you won't & haven't for a while now......
Before you travel to England – not fully vaccinated
Before you travel to England you must:

take a COVID-19 test – to be taken in the 2 days before you travel to England
book and pay for a COVID-19 PCR test – to be taken after you arrive in England
complete a UK passenger locator form – to be completed in the 48 hours before you arrive in England
You will need to enter your PCR test booking reference number in the passenger locator form.

According to this, if you have had omicron this winter, you could be good to go for Spain.

I have a trip booked for end of Jun and recently we had covid sweep through our house with hardly anyone noticing (one childs school did and banned him for a week) so hopefully I can get this squared up.
I wouldn't be surprised if Spain back down even more as the months progress too. The tide has turned, For example once upon a time airlines were rushing to enforce a mask mandate ("to keep us safe" from the sniffles), now Jet2 removed it and the other airlines are rushing to do the same so they don't lose business from weary punters

Go go go antibody test....

Waiting for the results of my anti body test. Doctor had to approve it "there is no clinical value in this" she said! "Tell that to the Spanish authorities" I said.

My back up would be to take the train across France, to Barcelona and then take a ferry. Problem is France currently consider the UK, who have decided Covid is done, a "orange list" plague ridden 3rd world dump. They really are spiteful and bitter about brexit , aren't they?!

Looks like Vietnam is the first Asian country to open up to non-vaccinated visitors! A test before boarding the flight is required but no quarantine or testing on arrival.

At the risk of sounding facetious, the United Kingdom is also a travel destination for the un-vaccinated!

Any links? Gov.UK still saying you need to be vaccinated.
