ARE YOU TRAVELLING ON A NEWMARKET HOLIDAY SOON?

 

See below for more information on the testing requirements of specific countries you might be visiting on a Newmarket holiday in the coming weeks.

Please note, the following assumes you're double vaccinated. If you're not double vaccinated, please click here.

Regarding the Covid-19 vaccination passports’ new validity rules for EU travel, we’ve consulted with trade bodies and can confirm the following:

  • The move comes as a result of a decision of the EU Commission to adopt a uniform acceptance for vaccination certificates to guarantee the continuity of the coordination on travel measures between the member states.
  • As of 1 February 2022, all the EU and Schengen countries now apply an expiry date of nine months, at most, for all Covid-19 double vaccination certificates, however this validity is extended as soon as travellers have their booster shots administered.
  • For travellers from the UK, vaccine certificates are provided by the NHS, with the recommended method being via the NHS App. Booster certificates are now included in these documents.
  • It’s important to be aware that some EU countries have currently gone to extra lengths, making double vaccination certificates valid for even shorter periods than the nine months advised.
  • Where a booster has been administered, there is currently no requirement for an expiry date on certificates. The interpretation of this is that there is currently no nine-month expiry being applied to booster certificates.
  • Importantly, the details of these new rules relate directly to the situation with the pandemic across the member states at this point in time. These recommendations are likely to evolve over the coming year – in comparison, the UK, which faced an earlier Omicron wave, has already seen almost all travel restrictions removed.

These regulations are frequently changing, and there are further changes are anticipated in the coming weeks, so please check this page regularly in the four weeks prior to your departure and the official country requirements which are linked below.
