Rules change in Britain for US and EU travelers

Rules change in Britain for US and EU travelers

People vaccinated with both doses from the US or the EU will not have to be isolated when they arrive in Britain. The rule change takes effect this morning. The British government has announced that the change will help reunite families and friends living abroad who will no longer need to be quarantined.

Airline officials have welcomed the decision and are calling for more seats to be added to Britain's green travel list. However passengers will still need to do a PCR test before departure and another post-arrival test.

Persons under the age of 18 will be exempted from quarantine and isolation, and depending on their age will undergo a rapid test.

Since July 19, people vaccinated with two doses have not had to quarantine in Britain in cases where they have traveled from countries on the green list, while other countries have been asked to be isolated for 10 days.

Stricter rules remain in place in France, with travelers still having to be quarantined even if they have been vaccinated with both doses.

Transport Minister Grant Shapps has stated that the measure will be reviewed by the end of the week.

As part of the changes, international cruise ships will be able to depart from England on Monday - after a 16-month break.
