England Scraps Testing Obligation for Fully Vaccinated Travellers

Britain will remove the testing requirement for inbound travellers who have been fully vaccinated, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced. This group must now be tested within two days of arrival.


It is not known when the testing obligation will be abolished. That information is expected to be released later on Monday. However, earlier this month, it was already decided that fully vaccinated people do not need a negative test result to enter England.

Unvaccinated travellers must have a corona test taken just before departure to England and immediately be quarantined for ten days on arrival. They must also be tested for the coronavirus at the beginning and end of the quarantine period.

The relaxation only applies to England. Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland decide on their own entry restrictions but generally follow the example of the government in London. Next week, a large part of the corona measures in England will be lifted.
