Travel restrictions may be eased for Brits who have been double jabbed

No 10 is considering relaxing restrictions around international travel for Brits who have had both doses of the vaccine

A government spokesperson spoke to Sky News and said that it is “working with industry for a safe return to international travel, guided by one overwhelming priority – public health.” 

They added: “Recognising the strong strategic rationale and success of the vaccine programme, we have commenced work to consider the role of vaccinations in shaping a different set of health and testing measures for inbound travel.”

If approved, it could mean Brits who are fully vaccinated will not need not quarantine upon their return from destinations such as the United States and countries across Europe

The financial secretary to the Treasury, Jesse Norman said the government was looking at all options. 

He told Sky News: “We don’t want to get left behind by countries which may be adopting a two jabs approach if it can be done safely and if it can be done carefully and securely.”

‘Don’t write off foreign holidays just yet’

Asked if Britons should not write off a foreign holiday just yet, the government minister replied: “We are trying to move cautiously and progressively in the right direction, so I wouldn’t write anything off at this point.

“But then we are in a situation where the virus is not something we control and we have seen this new Delta variant, so it would be imprudent to make any carte blanche or firm statement now.”

The latest government data shows that more than 30 million people in the UK have now had both doses of a COVID-19 jab.
