England is easing the entry requirements for people from Europe and the USA: From next week, people who have been completely vaccinated against Corona will no longer have to be in quarantine. However, France is an exception.
Travelers from the EU and the USA who have been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus will no longer have to go into quarantine after entering England: The conditions will no longer apply on Monday night, as British Transport Minister Grant Shapps announced on Twitter on Wednesday. “There are still separate rules for entries from France,” said the Ministry of Transport. London has classified France as a special case because of the spread of the beta variant of the corona virus. The FDFA was not yet able to say what the regulations are for people from Switzerland upon request.
The exemption from the quarantine obligation applies to everyone who is fully vaccinated with a vaccine approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) or the US FDA. So far, the only exemptions have been people who received the vaccine in the UK – much to the chagrin of the many Britons who live abroad.
“We’re helping bring people who live in the US and Europe back together with their families and friends,” said Shapps. However, all travelers still have to take a corona test before they start their journey and two days after their arrival in England. Travelers who have been vaccinated in the USA must also prove that they live there. The new rules only apply to entry into England. The regional governments of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have their own entry requirements.
