No quarantine for fully vaccinated amber list returnees in England

No quarantine for fully vaccinated amber list returnees in England

People from England travelling to amber list countries will not have to quarantine on return from 19th July if they are fully vaccinated, the transport secretary, Grant Shapps, has announced today (8th July 2021).

The move will potentially open up travel to 140 amber list countries, including the majority of tourist destinations, though some countries impose strict limits on UK travellers and even those who allow quarantine-free travel may require significant paper work or negative tests.

Travellers will still have to take pre-departure tests and will be required to take a PCR on day two of their return. It will mean the requirements for green and amber list countries are the same. The government will count full vaccination as meaning 14 days have passed since the final dose of the vaccine.

Children under 18 arriving from amber list countries will not have to isolate on the return.
