Greece and Israel have become the first two countries to announce that they will welcome vaccinated tourists to enjoy a quarantine-free holiday.

Residents who have been vaccinated from both Greece and Israel will be able to move freely between the two countries without having to isolate or provide proof of a Covid test.

Media reports have also suggested that Israel is currently in the process of discussing a travel corridor with the UK for vaccinated passengers once it re-opens its borders in late March. However, this has not yet been confirmed.

It is thought that this announcement will put pressure on the UK government to make a decision on vaccine passports and reconsider their advice to contact local GPs for confirmation should vaccinations become mandatory for holidays.

Should countries require travellers to arrive with proof of a Covid-19 vaccine, then it will be essential that British tourists comply with these entry requirements.

The reason we say this is because most travel insurance providers will not cover denied entry or cancellation costs if you arrive to a destination without the necessary documentation.

We will continue to keep you updated with what is happening around vaccine passports as the information is released by the government, so be sure to keep checking back for the latest updates!
