UK exempts isolated vaccine travelers from EU and US, except French people

Passengers vaccinated against Covit-19 coming to the UK from the European Union and the United States are exempt from isolation.

The British government announced on Wednesday that passengers who have been fully vaccinated against Covit-19 coming to the UK from the European Union and the United States will now be exempted from isolation, a move demanded by the tourism industry and foreigners.

The move will take effect at 4 a.m. Monday, Transport Minister Grant Shops said on Twitter.

For countries classified as “orange”, most tourist destinations, including the European Union and the United States, impose a minimum of five days of isolation for travelers and expensive trips.

He had already exempted isolated travelers who had been vaccinated by the British Health Service, but to the astonishment of British foreigners in these countries who were not vaccinated abroad, it was very difficult to return to the country.

Isolation is maintained for the French

Henceforth, due to the beta variant, the UK will use the same amount for those vaccinated in the EU or the United States who visit from all the countries on the “orange” list, except France.

“Separate rules will continue to apply to those coming from France,” the ministry said in a statement.

Vaccinated travelers in the United States must prove that they are residents of the United States. The PCR test will be mandatory two days after arrival.

These measures do not apply to countries classified as “red” by London (India, United Arab Emirates, South America …), from which only UK residents can return to their homes to take care of expensive isolation. Exclusive Hotels.
