England lifts quarantine for vaccinated travelers from EU and US

The UK government has announced on its official website that from 2 August, passengers fully vaccinated with vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will be able to travel to England without quarantine from yellow countries. It is the latest move by the British government in an effort to mitigate large losses in tourism. The UK tourism sector is on its knees and is estimated to be losing around € 90 million every day due to the country's closure to foreign tourists.

This decision was made by the British Government after the second report of the Global Working Group on Travel, and the latest changes should boost the economy and facilitate the return of vaccinated people from Europe or the United States to England. It should be noted that these measures include the resumption of international cruises.

The latest move by the UK, as expected, met with the approval of the entire tourism sector, and airlines were the first to react. They welcome the move, but call on the British government to further simplify passenger requirements. The return of transatlantic transport will greatly contribute to the recovery of airlines, but a response from the United States is now expected, with similar measures expected. If they do not occur, it is difficult to expect greater benefits.

Following close monitoring of epidemiological evidence, gained by relaunching the domestic cruise industry earlier this year, the UK government has also confirmed the continuation of international cruises from England in line with public health guidelines in England. Tips for international cruises will be modified to encourage passengers to understand the risks associated with cruise travel and take personal responsibility for their own safety abroad.

This decision will take effect on August 2 at 4 o'clock, so although passengers from the "yellow" countries will not have to be quarantined, they will have to have a negative test for COVID-19 before arriving in England. Special rules will continue to apply to travelers from France.
