european union no vax travel restrictions

by admin

A surge in infections from Covid-19 is overwhelming Europe, which runs for cover and decides, state by state and with few exceptions, to increase health security measures and reintroduce restrictions on social life. The new squeeze, however, is largely aimed at the unvaccinated.

Here is what non-immunized people can or cannot do in different European countries.

Timeline – Vaccinations – Infections

In Austria in lockdown

Until yesterday the Austrian government had in mind to keep only the unvaccinated in lockdown: no access to public places without proof of their immunization, only go out to go to work, go shopping or medical examinations. But the situation in the country’s hospitals is so bad that the chancellor Alexander Schallenberg has decided to extend the blockade to all citizens from next Monday. The generalized lockdown will last 20 days and from 13 December will continue only for the unvaccinated. The percentage of vaccinated in Austria is 66%, one of the lowest rates in Western Europe, while the number of infections is among the highest in the continent.

More checks to enter France

With over 20,000 cases per day recorded in the last 24 hours, France has tightened entry conditions for unvaccinated people arriving from 16 EU countries, including Germany, Belgium, Ireland, Holland, Austria and Greece. Travelers over 12 years of age and unable to demonstrate compliance with the double vaccination will have to submit the result of a negative molecular or antigenic swab made less than 24 hours prior to departure. Road transport workers, frontier workers and more generally those who travel for less than 24 hours within a radius of 30 kilometers from their place of residence are exempt.

Macron pushes on vaccines: third mandatory dose to keep the green pass for over 65s

President Emmanuel Macron explained that the ockdown for the unvaccinated in France “is not necessary” because “the countries that border the unvaccinated are those that have not established the health certificate”.

No green pass in Spagna

Spain is one of the countries with the highest vaccination rate: over 80% of citizens have received at least one dose and 79% have completed the vaccination cycle. The government has announced the start of the campaign for the third. The Spanish regional courts have always ruled against the obligation of the green psass, which does not exist here. Those who enter Spain must undergo the usual health checks and must fill out a health form that will produce a Qr code that the traveler must always carry with him. The measures change every week.

Greece, no vax restrictions: cinemas, pubs and museums

From the beginning of next week, those who are not vaccinated will face further restrictions to contain the spread of the virus.

Non-vaccinated people will be prohibited from entering indoor spaces such as cinemas, museums and gyms. According to Mitsotakis, all of this is needed to ensure that Greece has “a better Christmas this year than last year”. “Today, over 7 million Greeks have chosen the vaccine, or three for every four adults,” he said. However, Mitsotakis noted that there are nearly 600,000 over 60s in Greece who remain without vaccine protection and also announced that vaccination certificates for this age group will expire after seven months.

On the other hand, clubs may have to test their customers to allow them to dance without a mask.

Germany approved 3G (vaccinated, cured, tested). “Total lockdown” risk

Germany has enacted new rules for unvaccinated by introducing anti-Covid restrictions. The new rules, which will have to be translated into law, provide for a series of restrictions that will be triggered on the basis of the incidence of hospitalizations. “The situation is very serious, it is time to act,” Merkel said. The summit’s decisions will now have to be translated into law, both at the federal and local levels. yesterday the Bundestag, the lower house of parliament, approved a different legislative package which provides, among other things, access to workplaces and public transport on the basis of ‘3G’ (vaccinated, healed and tested), but excludes closure of schools and shops. “We are in a phase where we shouldn’t rule out anything.” The German health minister said so Jens Spahn, answering a question about why Germany does not immediately go into lockdown, in light of the drama of the pandemic situation.
