Britain to end quarantine restrictions for fully vaccinated travelers from medium risk countries

In a significant development, British transport minister Grant Shapps said, London will share the details of a plan which aims to do away with quarantine for fully vaccinated travellers who return from medium risk countries.

The potential move will boost flagging revenues of airlines.

Under current rules, those returning to Britain from destinations including the United States, France, Spain, and Italy, have to self-isolate for 10 days; this has severely dampened demand for travel.

Shapps is expected to say that those who are fully vaccinated, and who return from the so-called amber countries will have to no longer self-isolate. Around 65% of the British population is fully vaccinated.

He is also likely to say that travellers returning to Britain will have to take COVID-19 tests on their return, and provide details of how those who are under 18 and are not vaccinated can travel with their parents without being quarantined.

Following 15 months of travel restrictions, the country’s battered travel industry is struggling to recover from the coronavirus-induced COVID-19 pandemic.

Once there is clarity on how to end quarantines, bookings for the crucial July and August holiday season are expected to peak.
