Double-vaccinated Britons may not need to isolate when coming from amber destinations. Here’s the full list of affected countries.
The Prime Minister announced new COVID-19 guidance coming into place on July 19, including social distancing or the use of face covering is no longer required.
He also announced double vaccinated Britons arriving from amber list countries may not need to follow a 10 day quarantine.
“Will work with the travel industry towards removing the need for fully vaccinated arrivals to self isolate on return from an amber country,” he said.
These countries currently include holiday hotspots like Spain, Portugal, Greece or Italy.
Secretary of State for Transport Grant Shapp will unveil tomorrow the quarantine-free travel plans for double-vaccinated Britons.
He will also announce which countries will be included and when the change will come into effect.
It is expected vaccinated travellers will be able to skip quarantine on their return to the UK as Sajid Javid said yesterday quarantine-free holidays for double-jabbed travellers would happen “very soon”.
When being asked when vaccinated people will be able to enjoy restriction-free travel, the Health Secretary replied:
“Very, very soon, and the Secretary of State for Transport [Grant Shapps] will have more to say on this very shortly.”
The new measure will allow fully vaccinated tourists and their families to visit countries such as Spain and Greece without having to self-isolate for 10 days on return.
