UK welcomes tourists – but not from ‘red-list’ PH

Republika

The British government has announced the implementation of a major relaxation of travel restrictions for persons entering the UK who are fully vaccinated, thus opening the country to millions of international passengers.

Unfortunately, Pinoys aren’t included.


Reports said travellers from certain countries who have received two doses of either Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca or single-dose Janssen vaccines – which are recognized in England – are no longer required to submit to pre-departure, day-2 and day-8 PCR testing and spend 10 days in quarantine hotel (at their own expense) post-arrival.


The new rules are meant to make travel to the UK easier and cheaper due to the quarantine-free feature which will reduce the burden of fully-vaccinated passengers entering the country.


Reports said there are more than 50 countries where travellers can enter the UK without being required to self-isolate if they had already received two doses of approved Covid19 vaccines.


But in Southeast Asia, passengers originating from Indonesia, Vietnam, Myanmar, Thailand and the Philippines are obliged to undergo such stringent health protocols as they are among 54 countries falling under the Red List (or high risk) category.


Exempted are those tourists from Malaysia, Brunei, Cambodia and Singapore.
