Britons ‘cheating’ to enter countries during pandemic pay thousands ‘Out of frustration’

Avoiding quarantine or entering a restricted country can be done legally just by cleaning your travel history.

Many countries have restrictions for those who have spent the last 14 days in another nation, but travellers can always spend that period of time in a third country to enter restriction-free.

That is for example if a non-vaccinated tourist wanted to skip quarantine when returning from an amber destination. Spain is on the UK’s amber list, which means non-vaccinated travellers have to quarantine on their way back. However, one can always spend 14 days in green country Croatia to avoid self-isolation. Croatia also allows travellers from Spain to enter restriction free.

The same happens with travellers who wanted to avoid hotel quarantine when coming from red list country Thailand by spending two weeks in amber Greece. The Mediterranean country also allows entry from Thailand without restrictions.
