There are now no Covid entry requirements for tourists visiting either country, regardless of their vaccination status.

Britons no longer need to show proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test, or quarantine on arrival.

Regarding Poland, the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs indicates: “The obligation to submit to quarantine on arrival in Poland has been lifted. There is also no longer any obligation to demonstrate your vaccination status to the arrival.

“A pre-departure test is no longer required for travelers from non-Schengen countries, including the UK.”

On Sweden, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website states: “As of 1 April 2022, people traveling to Sweden from the UK or other non-EU/EEA countries will no longer be required to present a negative Covid test or proof of vaccination.

Poland and Sweden are following in the footsteps of a growing number of countries that have dropped all of their Covid restrictions entirely.

As of today, Grenada no longer requires proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test to enter, and unvaccinated Britons no longer need to self-quarantine upon arrival.

The Caribbean destination has also removed mandatory masks.

Denmark dropped all Covid entry requirements last month, as did Gibraltar.

Other popular holiday destinations are relaxing their Covid rules ahead of the Easter holidays.

France has moved the UK to its green list and removed the requirement for unvaccinated travelers to need an essential reason to enter the country.

Spain has dropped Covid testing and quarantine rules for anyone with mild symptoms of the virus or those who are asymptomatic.

However, Spain has extended its Covid entry requirements until the end of this month, which could impact some Britons who had Easter holiday plans.

Until April 30, only vaccinated Britons or those who can show proof of recovery from Covid can enter Spain.

This means that unvaccinated people who cannot prove they have had Covid in the past six months are still not allowed entry.
