Changes to quarantine requirements for EU and US citizens entering England

The UK Government has today announced that as of 0400 BST August 2nd, EU and US residents arriving from an ‘Amber’ list destination to England will no longer need to self-isolate if they have been fully vaccinated with vaccines authorised by the EMA in Europe and FDA in the USA. Travellers must have been fully vaccinated for at least 14 days prior to arrival and will no longer be required to take a ‘day 8’ COVID-19 arrival test. Those vaccinated in the US must provide proof of US residency.

Passengers from all countries must continue to complete a passenger locator form prior to departure, and take a pre-departure COVID-19 test within 72 hours of their departure. A ‘day 2’ arrival PCR test is also still required.
