Fully vaccinated people from the United Arab Emirates, Malaysia and India will now be able to visit since the Sinovac, Sinopharm Beijing and Covaxin vaccines will be added to the lists of jabs accepted in the UK amongst Pfizer-BioNTech, Oxford AstraZeneca, Moderna and Janssen.
Individuals who have been fully vaccinated with one of the approved vaccines and who have received their vaccine certificate will not be required to take a pre-departure Covid – 19 test, day eight test or to self-isolate upon arrival. Instead, they will simply need to pay for a lateral flow test to take before the end of their second day after arriving in the UK.
The Britain’s government continues to simplify its travel rules for fully inoculated travellers and under-18s. As from 22 November, children aged 17 and under will not have to be quarantined upon arrival in England if they are UK resident or in a “country or territory with an approved proof of vaccination”. It also applies to the “children of someone who is fully vaccinated under the UK overseas vaccination programme”.
