UK Travel Update: Should I quarantine? What countries Exempted for jabbed travelers?

After Freedom Day, which saw the end of most restrictions on entry to Britain’s ports and airports, there is increasing pressure for the Government to remove quarantine from UK visitors. The rules regarding British citizens who travel to Britain from the US or EU will be changed starting Monday, August 2.

All Covid-19 safety precautions, which included the requirement that people wear masks when they go to public places in England, were lifted on July 19.

However, there are still restrictions on international travel despite the easement.

It was announced last week that fully-vaccinated travelers from the EU or US will no longer be required to undergo quarantine when arriving in the UK.

The update on travel restrictions will provide much-needed support to struggling tourism and aviation industries.
