No Quarantine for Fully Jabbed US and EU Travellers to England

People who have been fully vaccinated in the EU or US will not need to isolate when coming to England, Scotland or Wales from an amber list country

People who have been fully vaccinated in the EU or US will not need to isolate when coming to England, Scotland or Wales from amber list countries.

The change will come into force at 04:00 BST on Monday August 2.

Currently, only people who received their jabs in the UK can avoid quarantine when arriving from amber list countries, except France.

The government said the rule change would help to reunite family and friends whose loved ones live abroad.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said it would apply to people who have been fully vaccinated with a jab approved by the EU or US - although travellers would still need to take tests before they arrived and on the second day when they landed.

Extra, tougher rules will continue to be in place for France, which is on the amber list but still requires travellers to quarantine when they return, even if they are fully vaccinated.

As well as reopening to the EU and the US, international cruises will also be allowed to restart from England.
