In line with England’s unlocking roadmap, from 19th July, people who have received a complete COVID-19 vaccination will not have to quarantine on return from an amber list country.
This is excellent news if you’ve been longing for a holiday this summer. easyJet Holidays reported a 300% increase in bookings, following the announcement last week.
For travellers who haven’t yet completed a full vaccination, you’ll need to self-isolate for ten days after returning from an amber list country. The quarantine can be reduced to five days if you take an additional test on day five.
How does it work?
In essence, the requirements of green and amber countries will be the same for fully jabbed people. You’ll still need a test before returning home and a test on day two. But you won’t need to quarantine or take a test on day 8.
Currently, only NHS vaccinations are accepted, and 14 days must have passed since your last vaccination.
The government is set to review the travel list on Thursday 15th July. Watch out for more countries moving from amber to green.
