The British government has decided today that fully vaccinated citizens of the European Union and the United States will be able to travel to the UK without being isolated for ten days from August 2, Reuters reported.
The new measure will apply to travelers from countries the British government considers low or medium risk. Slovakia London considers the medium risk based on the spread of the corona virus.
Travelers wishing to avoid isolation should be vaccinated with one of the vaccines approved by the European Union or the United States, namely Pfizer / Bioentech, Moderna, Astrogeneka and Johnson & Johnson.
A negative PCR test before departure and another PCR test the day after arrival in the country will follow.
Mandatory isolation in the UK has so far been avoided only by travelers who have been vaccinated under the British NHS health system and who have obtained a medical passport, which had to be proved upon arrival.
They also tested negative for the corona virus before leaving the country, and had to take another test the next day. On trips from countries considered moderately dangerous by the British government, they must go to the recommended isolation or take another test on the eighth day after arrival.
The British government has decided to ease some measures after harsh criticism from the tourism industry, saying it was too slow.
Any release announced by the UK will take effect soon in other parts of the UK, Reuters reported.
This change will make travel easier not only for citizens of the European Union and the United States, but also for Britons living abroad. The United States said last week that it did not plan to release strict travel arrangements for British citizens, while many EU countries would recognize a medical passport issued in the UK.
