Britain announces major relaxation in international travels rules for vaccinated people

The UK government has announced a major relaxation in international travel rules for vaccinated people, with long-haul routes between India and the UK set to benefit. From October 4, the current traffic light system of red, amber and green countries based on levels of Covid-19 risk will be scrapped and replaced with one red list only.

The scrapping of an amber list, which is what India is currently on, means reduced cost burden for travellers related to compulsory quarantines and PCR tests.

From October 4, travellers will also no longer need to take pre-departure PCR tests for travelling into England from abroad. UK Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said, the move will allow more people to travel, see loved ones or conduct business around the world.

However, anyone testing positive will need to isolate and take a free confirmatory PCR test, which would be genomically sequenced to help identify new variants.
