London, January 24
Britain on Monday announced that it will scrap Covid-19 test requirements for fully vaccinated travellers entering England from next month.
UK Transport Secretary Grant Shapps made a statement outlining the travel update, confirming that from February 11, travellers who have had both doses of a vaccine will no longer be required to take a test after arriving.
He said those who don’t qualify as fully vaccinated no longer require to do a day eight test after arrival, or self-isolate. “They will still need to fill out a Passenger Locator Form to demonstrate proof of a negative test taken two days before they travel and they must still take a post-arrival PCR test,” he said. — PTI
