UK eases travel rules: No quarantine for Indian fully vaccinated with Covishield

Fairly good news for international travelers, Britain has decided to scrap its tough covid 19 quarantine requirements for 47 countries, including India. People who are vaccinated with the WHO-approved covishield in India will now be able to travel to the UK from the 11th of October and will not need to quarantine for 10 days anymore.

  This specific point has been a bitter bone of contention between the two countries, with India also retaliating, by imposing the same measures for UK travelers. Those fully vaccinated will now no longer be required to take a pre-departure test nor the eight-day test after their arrival. But just a test on day two of arrival for those who are partially vaccinated or have received a vaccine not approved by the WHO the earlier rules remain now. This includes compulsory pre-departure tests, further 19 tests on day 2 and day 8 of arrival, and self-isolation. For 10 days, the British high commissioner to India Alex Ellis tweeted the new rules and thanked the Indian government for their cooperation. From Monday, the 11th of October, a traveler from India to the UK, double jabbed with covishield or another vaccine recognized by the UK regulator Does not have to quarantine it'll be easier and cheaper to enter the UK.
