Vaccinated Britons will not have to quarantine in full from this summer onwards in countries on the Amber list.
From July 19, people in England will be allowed to travel more readily to countries on the Amber List. English tourists will be allowed to visit these countries for pleasure.
Grant Shapps has unveiled the government’s newest international travel regulations. From July 19, people in England will be able to travel to countries on the amber list for pleasure. This means that English tourists will be able to visit relatives and friends in France, Portugal, the United States, and other countries.
The Government’s amber list includes the majority of European countries.
English citizens will be able to travel to amber nations for pleasure from July 19.
Residents of England who have been twice vaccinated will be able to travel to these countries without being subjected to quarantine.
This is a significant change from the existing arrangement, in which Britons returning to the UK from an amber list nation must quarantine for ten days.
Children under the age of 18 will also not be required to self-isolate when returning to England from an amber country.
This means that youngsters can travel with double-jabbed adults and follow the same restrictions when they return to the United Kingdom.
Mr Shapps did point out, however, that rules in Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland varied from those in England due to Britain’s devolved administrations.
“I can confirm today that from July 19, UK citizens who are fully vaccinated through the UK vaccination rollout will no longer have to self-isolate when they return to England,” the transport secretary said in a statement from the Commons.
“They’ll still have to take a test three days before they return, the pre-departure test, to prove they’re negative before they fly, and a PCR test on or before day two, but they won’t have to do a test on day eight.
“In essence, this means that the standards for green and amber list nations are the same for fully vaccinated travelers.
“To be clear, a full vaccination means 14 days have passed since your final dose of the vaccine. It’s also important to note that because health is devolved, decision-making and implementation may differ across UK administrations. We’ll continue to work with the devolved administrations to ensure we achieve our shared goals of a safe, sustainable, and robust return to international travel.
Mr Shapps went on to say, “I don’t underestimate for a second.” Brinkwire Summary News
