    Airlines (in the cases I checked) seem to be happy to follow the destination govt requirements.

    COVID rates are rising rapidly worldwide atm and Austria just hit a record high for daily infections. I wonder if we'll see countries tightening back up in the year to come.

    From gov.uk site:

    If you will arrive in England from abroad after 4am, Friday 18 March, you do not need to:

    take any COVID-19 tests – before you travel or after you arrive
    fill in a UK passenger locator form before you travel
    This will apply whether you are vaccinated or not.

    You also will not need to quarantine when you arrive, in line with current rules.

    Doing exactly the same. I leave 4 April. Booked today.

    I look forward to an epic 2-3 month pub crawl starting in HK sometime in early 2023, with the UK and EU in the middle and ending in some far corner of the world where some random geoexpat member would be happy to have a couple of beers with me!

    I thought you already did a bit of an extended period out in Portugal -- or was that just for the visas?

    We are looking at end of June. Looking like we will have the summer off in Europe! Two months of holiday! (Maybe a permanent holiday for me if I don't find a new job...)

    Still need about a month to confirm. I worry a bit that the company will be a bit sluggish... bit pricey to organize everything ourselves though.

    I have signed today with my moving company. Leaving April 16th first off to Thailand, then 1 month Sin then 2 month Eur.
    Afterwards off to a new location in Asia.
    Might cause an issue in case face to face school resumes before the summer but willing to take the risk, it’s been too long.
    Another 3 gone. Pains me, I love Hong Kong, daughter born here lots and lots of good memories but time to move on. Will miss geo as well! Thanks all for entertainment and advice!

    The growth in some countries will be short lived I think and it is only some countries. Deaths are still falling.

    Nope. There is a trade-off between quality of life locked down all the time and small risk of death to those who didn't vaccinate. Most countries have now made the right decision.
