Simpson Safe Corsica
Last updated 17 July 2020.
Everything you need to know about travelling to Corsica in 2020…
All restrictions on travel between the UK and Corsica will be lifted on 10 July 2020.
There are currently no entry requirements for travel to Corsica but passengers will be asked to complete a questionnaire before boarding their return flight to the UK. This will be supplied by the check-in staff at the airport. If required to give details of an address overseas, your villa name and region should be sufficient.
Will I be tested for Covid-19 at the airport?
Will temperature checks be carried out during my stay?
Temperature scanners are operational at all airports but temperature checks are not routinely carried out before entering shops, restaurants and bars in Corsica.
Should I wear a face mask?
Face masks are mandatory on arrival at the airport in Corsica for everyone aged 11 and over (unless indicated otherwise by a medical professional) and are also required for taxi transfers, shops and in all indoor public spaces.
Beaches in Corsica are all open as usual and sunbeds (where available) are laid out in accordance with social distancing guidelines. Picnics are not allowed on beaches in Corsica in 2020.
Restaurants are open as usual and tables are spaced in accordance with social distancing guidelines.
Bars are open as usual with customers expected to adhere to social distancing guidelines.
Shops are open as usual and masks may be required, at the owner’s discretion.
Boats, experiences and activities
Boat trips are running as usual in Corsica this summer, with social distancing implemented on the jetty when waiting to board. Some other pre-bookable activities and experiences may carry limitations for 2020; your Simpson Concierge will be able to advise.
Will there be any changes at the villa or hotel?
Please check your property details carefully on our website to see if any changes have been implemented for 2020. All our hygiene and enhanced cleaning measures are detailed on our Simpson Safe hub page.
What should I do if a member of my party is unwell or develops symptoms of Covid-19?
As always, your local Simpson Concierge has everything in place to assist you and should be your first port of call. They can arrange rapid testing, access to medical care if required, and are fully briefed on all procedures in the event that a member of your party tests positive for Covid-19.
Returning to the UK
You will not be required to quarantine when you return to the UK. However, within 48 hours of travelling back, all passengers must complete a form giving journey and contact details, ready to present at the UK border. This may be printed, or downloaded onto a smart device and can be found at https://www.gov.uk/provide-journey-contact-details-before-travel-uk
