For fully vaccinated travelers, crossing into England will soon be a bit easier. British Secretary of State for Transport Grant Shapps said Monday that people who meet that criteria will no longer have to take a Coronavirus test within two days of entering the country, beginning at 4 a.m. on February 11.
According to the Washington Post, the country is also clamping down on testing requirements for travelers who are not fully vaccinated – getting rid of a rule which mandated that persona take a test on the eighth day after arrival.
However, travellers will still need to take a take a test before departing and a PCR test on or before their second day in England.
Regardless of vaccination status, all arrivals will need to complete a passenger locator form, which Shapps said will be simplified, “making it quicker and easier to complete.”
