Everything You Need To Know About COVID-19 Policies For Traveling To The United Kingdom
“The UK continues to move forward in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic with vaccine distribution, our ‘We’re Good To Go’ industry standard and a collaborative and resilient tourism industry.
“England’s recovery roadmap is underway, leading the country out of lockdown. Step 3, which will take effect from May 17, removes most outdoor social contact restrictions and permits outdoor performances, indoor hospitality, performance and sporting events (with adjusted capacity) and several other activities. Step 4, which will take effect no earlier than June 21, will hopefully remove all legal limits on social contact and large events, including nightclubs, will reopen.
“Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are also moving forward with their own plans to ease
Covid restrictions. Each timeline takes a phased approach to reopening and remains contingent on the continued success of vaccination programs across the UK this spring.”The recent traffic light system, which was announced on May 7, outlines England’s efforts to reintroduce international travel – both inbound and outbound. The US has been categorized in the Amber section, which requires a 10 day quarantine, with options to test out early. The list will be reviewed every three weeks.”
The Traffic Light System
This is much like the color-coded tier systems in the USA. Some countries, such as Australia, will be upgraded after the initial implementation, tho the United States will remain in the Amber color.
