Travelers who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in the European Union and the United States will now be exempt from quarantine in England and Scotland. The measure, for which the tourism sector has campaigned heavily, will go into effect from Monday at 4 a.m. (6 a.m. in Paris). Ministry of Transport specified (link in english) Wednesday 28 July, followed a few hours later by its local Scottish counterpart. A PCR test will be mandatory for two days after arrival. “We are helping people living in the US and European countries reconnect with family and friends in the UK”Minister said Grant Shapps on twitter (link in english),

For countries classified as “orange”, the United Kingdom has so far imposed a quarantine of between five and ten days for travelers and costly tests, for most tourist destinations, including the European Union and the United States. He had already exempted travelers vaccinated by the UK health service from quarantine but not those vaccinated abroad, much to the dismay of British expatriates in countries for which it is very difficult to return home. From now on, England and Scotland will apply the same measure to people arriving from all countries on the “orange” list in the European Union or the United States.

However, this will not be applicable on arrivals from France, the British government has announced due to the presence of a beta version. “Different rules will apply for arrivals from France”, Ministry specified.
