  • Travel to Europe by June?

    I have absolutely no idea how a visa is meant to work within the Schengen zone.

    I assume any visa will be an EU one or else it’s impossible to police.

    Visas are usually Schengen Visas. They should be issued by the point of entry, so if you enter Schengen via France, you’d usually get a Schengen visa from France. This is pre-Brexit and exactly what that will end up looking like for British citizens post-Brexit is not clear I think. Also, in June there’s a reasonable chance there will still be restrictions on travel between Schengen locations due to COVID, so I’d factor that in to any plans that involve a border. And whilst it will, as others have pointed out, likely to be fairly easy to find crossing points that aren’t staffed like checkpoint charlie was, do expect challenges if your visa was clocked at entry in France and you get stopped 1 month later a long way from there if there are restrictions…

    my wife pointed out that we might have to have negative COVID tests before entry to the EU, and again on the way home – currently this would cost us almost £1k for the 4 of us.

    Also a risk that individual countries may want similar as well for non-residents – pain if you cross lots of borders

    Yes, but given the debate its sparked I can’t see it being implemented

    I meant, for us Brits…

    At the current rate the British population will be vaccinated faster than here and hopefully a low risk by the Summer. Make sure you keep your vaccination certificate, there’s talk of a “Covid passeport” though there are doubts such a move would be legal.

    It’s a genuine question. Is there such thing as a “vaccination certificate” for Brits to keep? The old folks in our families haven’t had the vaccine, so I have no idea whether you get a “vaccination certificate” for Covid19… but I’d be surprised if you did.

    At present there isn’t, but if it’s something that becomes a norm (which in some cases it’s a certainty) then a letter from your GP or similar will be the ‘certificate’.

    That is currently the case for Spain, negative PCR up to 72 hours prior to get in, and the same again to re-enter the UK. Non residents currently not allowed to travel anyway.

    I got a vaccination certificate for N1H1 here. We also have vaccination cards to get filled in each time we get a vaccine. Seems a bit antiquated in this computer age but it works and provides instant proof should anyone ask. We couldn’t take junior swimming until he was vaccinated.

    I have a little booklet somewhere that records I’ve had yellow fever vaccine and a bunch of others. There are various tropical countries you won’t be getting in without such

    MrMo… Swiss Epic? I’m sure it will run in 21 as they did a stellar job of Covid protocols in 20. (I’m on the event team..). I think that they set the standard as the first mass participation Covid time event.

    Anyhow, Im a German resident officially, but still on a GB passport. German position for me if I get a stamp in my UK passport in France returning to German from the Uk is I have a “souvenir” of my trip to the UK. The 90 days won’t apply in my circumstance.

    A bit pointless given we don’t yet know if having had the vaccine or means you can’t pass it on or be carrier.
