Grant Ships has announced that UK residents do not need to be fully vaccinated to isolate themselves on their return from the Amber List countries from July 19.
The transport secretary unveiled the new rules in a statement to the public on Thursday.
Mr Shops began by saying that he did not realize how difficult the last 16 months had been for those unable to travel to see the family.
However, “the safety of public health has been our top priority”, he said, adding that this is why strict border measures were introduced along international travel boundaries.
Addressing members of parliament, he said he was now happy to be able to stay in that position, “where we return to a normal sense of life and start thinking about how we live with the corona virus.” Announcing: “From July 19, UK residents who have been fully vaccinated will no longer have to isolate themselves when they return to England.”
However, some testing requirements for vacationers will remain in place. Here, we take a look at our rules from July 19:
Travel laws in Amber’s list countries from July 19
The government will no longer advise against international travel to Amber List countries from July 19.
From this date, UK residents who have both doses of the coronavirus vaccine will be able to travel to the Amber List countries without having to isolate themselves for 10 days upon their return to England.
Mr Shoppe explained that “complete vaccination” meant that 14 days had passed since the last dose of the vaccine.
Passengers will need to take the test three days before the return, pre-departure test, indicating that they are already negative before the trip, and the PCR test will take place the next day or so, but Now they don’t have to take a day off. Eight tests.
The rules mean that the green and amber list countries have the same needs.
Mr Shops said the move would give priority to polio vaccinators in the UK, but the government wanted to welcome international visitors to the UK.
“We are working to expand our perspective on vaccinated travelers from major markets and holiday destinations such as the United States and the European Union this summer,” he added.
The Secretary of Transport has also confirmed that children under the age of 18 will not have to be separated on their return from Amber List countries, nor will they have to take eight tests a day.
Children aged five to 10 will only need to take two tests a day – and, as before, children aged four and under will be exempt from all testing and isolation requirements.
When it comes to granting vaccinated vaccines, Mr Ships said more than 30 countries and territories are now recognizing vaccine certification as part of registration requirements.
This is either as proof of vaccination letter acceptance or on the NHS app.
Finally, Mr Ships also warned that amid concerns about the severity of the coronavirus, the amber-listed country could still be moved to the red list – meaning hotel quarantine would become a necessity.
