Amber list quarantine for fully vaccinated to end on 19 July
UK residents arriving in England from amber travel list countries will no longer have to quarantine on from 19 July, providing them have received both vaccine doses.
But they will still need to pay for PCR tests before and after their return, the transport secretary said.
Grant Shapps told MPs under-18s returning from amber list destinations would also be exempt.
Currently, anyone returning from amber or red list destinations have to isolate for 10 days regardless of their vaccine status.
“To be clear, a full vaccination means 14 days have passed since your final dose of the vaccine,” Mr Shapps said.
He added: “In essence, this means that for fully vaccinated travellers the requirements for green and amber list countries are the same.”
The guidance to not travel to amber list countries will also be removed from 19 July.
But he cautioned “an amber list country could still turn red”, meaning hotel quarantine would become a requirement.
