From today, those who have completed the vaccination against Covid-19 also in the United States or in the countries of the European Union will no longer have to undergo a quarantine period upon arrival in the United Kingdom if they come from one of the countries of the ‘amber list’, of which Italy is part. The BBC confirms the entry into force of the new provisions from 4 am local time after the announcements last week.
Travelers will still need to undergo a quick test or molecular test before departure and then on the second day of arrival. Under 18s, the BBC points out, are excluded from the rules for quarantine and on the basis of age, they are required to test.
As early as July 19, those who have completed the vaccination with the second dose in the UK do not have to undergo quarantine if they fall from one of the countries on the ‘amber list’. Stricter measures remain in force for France, the BBC continues, with travelers who will still have to respect the quarantine even if they have received the two doses of the coronavirus vaccine.
