The Gibraltar Government has eased its COVID-19 testing requirements for 12 to 16-year-old passengers arriving in Gibraltar by air. Travellers in that age group who have had at least one dose of a recognised vaccine against COVID-19 will no longer be required to undertake a pre-departure test.
According to the government, the change in requirements was agreed on the advice of the director of public health, following the successful rollout of the vaccine to this age group last week. The NHS card issued on receipt of the first dose can be used as proof of vaccination for the purposes of the Passenger Locator Form, although anyone who develops symptoms – “however mild” – on arrival in Gibraltar is advised to call 111 to arrange for a test.
New Airport Outlet for Beauty Brand Foreo
Meanwhile, Swedish beauty and wellness brand Foreo has partnered with SM Seruya to open two new stores in Gibraltar. One is inside the international airport departure lounge and the other in Gibraltar’s Main Street shopping district (Nº 139).
A fourth-generation family-owned business and the exclusive operator at Gibraltar International Airport, SM Seruya’s portfolio of brands includes Estee Lauder, Chanel, Dior, Hermes, Maison Francis Kurkdjian and PUIG.
“We are beyond excited to enter the Gibraltar market in partnership with SM Seruya,” said Foreo’s global travel retail director Gary Leong. “As a major tourist destination connected directly with main cities in the United Kingdom, it proves to be a promising market for our brand. We are hitting the ground running with two locations opening simultaneously, and are thankful to SM Seruya for their cooperation and continued support in this partnership.”
Added SM Seruya’s managing director Shaya Seruya, “Having such an international brand in the beauty industry on board is a great accomplishment for SM Seruya. We have been continuously expanding our beauty portfolio over the years, and Foreo is a notable addition to that.”
Both stores house Foreo’s complete range including Luna 3, Luna Mini 3 and Luna Mini 2 facial cleansing massagers, as well as the 90-second UFO masking device, UFO Masks, and the Issa electric toothbrush range, including Issa Kids, Issa Baby and Issa Play.
