U.K. now open to PH tourists

Fully-vaccinated travellers from the Philippines are now being welcomed with open arms in the United Kingdom.


This was after the UK Embassy in Manila announced that the Philippines was removed from the “travel red list” last October11.


“From Monday, October 11, the Philippines will no longer be on the red list for entering England,” the UK embassy said in an advisory.


Persons coming from red list countries are required to undergo stringent health protocols such as pre-departure, day 2 and day 8 RT-PCR testing and 10-day quarantine.


Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Panama, Haiti, Venezuela and the Dominican Republic are the only countries left on the UK’s red list.


The UK government placed the Philippines in the red list classification last April 2021 at the height of spikes in Covid cases due to emer-ging SARD-CoV2 variants.


Fully vaccinated passengers and eligible minors from non-red list countries will no longer be required to undergo a 10-day quarantine which would cost some 2,300 British pounds (approx. PhP159,000) per adult.


To qualify, travellers should be fully vaccinated at least 14 days before arrival in the UK. The approved vaccines are Moderna, Janssen, Oxford AstraZeneca and PfizerBioNTech.
