Please see below information on what you need to do to comply with the entry requirements for the country you’re travelling to, and for your return to the UK.
Whether you need to fill out a form or get tested before your holiday – plus, more importantly, the point in time at which you need to do this – all depends on the destination you’re travelling to. To help, we’ve put together a handy table:
You’ll find a full list of all of the latest country-specific information on testing and entry requirements on the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office website. We’ve also included quick links to the countries we’re operating to further down on this page.
If you do require testing before you travel, we can help you with that.
What you need to do in preparation for coming back to the UK from your holiday destination depends on which UK country you’re a resident in, and whether you’re travelling back from a green or amber country. We’ve put together a table to help you understand which forms you’ll need to fill in and which tests you’ll need to take before you travel back to the UK.
Check with Quered which test package you will require and if you need to source extra Covid-19 tests. You can of course always arrange your own Covid-19 tests if you prefer. Should you wish to use Quered, our discount code is LONGTRAVEL10.
We strongly advise that you sign up to receive FCDO email alerts so you can automatically receive any important travel advice updates and travel requirements for the destinations you want to know about.
You should regularly check in the run up to your holiday the FCDO website, our entry requirements checklist and also our entry requirements checklist for returning to the UK. We recommend that you make a note to check these websites at least two weeks before your travel date to allow time for changes if necessary.
If you’re travelling to the EU, your passport must have at least six months left on it and must be less than 10 years old.
It is worth noting that it can take up to 10 weeks to renew your passport, so it’s best to check the expiration date as early as possible to avoid a delay to your holiday.
The COVID-19 forms and tests you need to complete will vary depending on the destination you’re travelling to and the UK country you’re a resident in. Make sure you check the entry requirements for your destination, as well as requirements for re-entering the UK before you travel. And, make a note of the days on which you need to complete your COVID-19 tests and forms – this is very important.
Please see below direct links to the country-specific pages on the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office website, where you’ll find all of the latest information on entry requirements for the countries we’re currently operating to.

You will be required to comply with local regulations that will be advised by staff in the resort.
If you test positive in your destination before you’re due to return home to the UK, you’ll need to inform our team, plus your hotel and your insurance company. You’ll then need to follow the specific procedures in place at your hotel. These vary from destination to destination and may include the need to self-isolate in a medical facility or your hotel room. You also won’t be able to travel home until you’ve had a COVID-19 test that comes back negative.
We won’t be operating to any destinations on the red list, which requires you to quarantine in a hotel on your return. If you’ve got a holiday booked to a destination on the red list, you’ll be able to change your booking to another date or request a full refund.
If – before you depart – we know you’ll have to self-isolate at home on your return, you’ll have the option to change your holiday to another date or destination, as we don’t expect you to do this, but your booking won’t be cancelled.
If you live in England and have been fully vaccinated, you will be able to demonstrate your COVID-19 vaccination status through the NHS app to be able to enter some countries.
If you do not reside in England you will need to follow your own country’s travel advice.
I was so nervous about embarking on my first Solos Holiday, but I shouldn’t have been – it was the best thing I have ever done!
Wow! Got to see the famous shipwreck beach in Zakynthos with Solos. Can’t wait to discover more of their destinations!
Our tour leader Monica was exceptional! Had such a good time and will be rebooking with Solos. Thanks for a great holiday!
