Although travel restrictions have mostly been lifted here in the UK, there are still a number of rules and expectations around the world that travelers should be aware of.
When you return to England, the rules in place are no longer dependent on the destination of the trip, but now only your vaccination status.
Vaccinated arrivals do not need to be isolated on return, but unvaccinated travelers must still be quarantined for 10 days from any destination.

When traveling abroad, many other countries similarly have different rules for travelers depending on their vaccination status.
Here are the latest travel rules for Norway, Sweden, Finland, Austria and Switzerland.
Your ability to enter Norway depends on your personal circumstances, for example whether you are vaccinated or not.
Those who are fully vaccinated will be able to travel to Norway by showing their Covid passport, and will not have to present proof of a negative test, fill in a registration form, be tested at the border or quarantine after arrival.
Travelers from the UK who cannot show proof of complete vaccination must complete a self-declaration form within 72 hours of travel and can be tested on arrival.
Unvaccinated travelers must also be quarantined in their home or hotel for 10 days after arrival.
However, they can end the quarantine early with a negative PCR test taken no earlier than three days after entry.
The Swedish government has announced that travelers who can present a British vaccine certificate are exempt from the entry ban to Sweden and the requirement for a covid-19 test.
Vaccinated travelers can enter Sweden for all purposes without having to test themselves or self-isolate themselves, as long as they are fully vaccinated for at least two weeks.
Travelers who are not vaccinated will need to show proof that they are exempt from the current travel ban.
They must also have a valid test taken within the last 48 hours or proof that they are exempt from the test requirements.

Travelers who are not vaccinated must present proof of a significant or compassionate reason to enter the country.
If they have received a negative Covid test within 72 hours before the trip and / or a first dose of Covid vaccine at least two weeks before arrival, they will need to take a Covid test between days three and five in Finland.
If the traveler has no evidence of a vaccination dose or negative Covid test, he must perform a Covid test no later than 24 hours after arrival.

Vaccinated travelers must show proof of vaccination upon entry if they want to avoid having to isolate themselves.
For single-use vaccines, such as Johnson & Johnson, you must show that you received the vaccine more than 21 but no more than 270 days before arrival.
For double-injection vaccines, such as AstraZeneca or Moderna, you must show that you received the second injection no more than 360 days before arrival.
Travelers who are not vaccinated must show proof of recovery from Covid and self-isolate for 10 days.
They may leave self-isolation after five days with a new negative PCR test result.
Travelers from the UK can enter Switzerland for all travel purposes as long as they are fully vaccinated and can show proof.
Those who are not fully vaccinated can only enter the country for a number of limited reasons, such as whether they are Swiss citizens, EU citizens or those with a residence permit.
Travelers who are not fully vaccinated and do not meet any of the exceptions do not have the right to enter Switzerland.
All travelers must also fill out a form to find passengers.
