New rules for Brits entering Switzerland and Austria come into force today.

Switzerland has relaxed entry rules for Brits and is now accepting negative antigen tests taken up to 24 hours before arrival.

Visitors can still chose to provide a negative PCR taken within the previous 72 hours.

New rules for the country, which start today (Monday 20 December) also mean fully vaccinated or recovered travellers will no longer have to take tests on days 4 and 7.

Meanwhile, Brits entering Austria who have not had their booster must show a negative COVID-19 test.

And Greece is now asking all arrivals from the age of five to produce a negative antigen or PCR test. Antigen tests must be taken no more than 24 hours before arrival and PCRs no more than 72 hours earlier. The same rule applies to both vaccinated and unvaccinated visitors.
