UK Eases Travel Restrictions For Indians After Decline In COVID-19 Cases
UK eases travel restrictions for Indian's as the COVID-19 cases report a decline. Starting today, fully vaccinated Indian passengers will no longer be subjected to a compulsory 10-day hotel quarantine on their arrival to Britain
After India recorded a sudden spike in COVID-19 during April and June, several nations imposed temporary ban on flights. Amidst the fear of outspread of Delta Plus variant, Indian passengers were subjected to quarantine for 10 days on their arrival in Britain. Now the UK eased a few travel restrictions for Indians and allowed fully vaccinated people to skip the 10-day compulsory quarantine at hotels.
On Sunday (August 10), UK eased travel restrictions for India by moving the country from its red list to the amber list. From today onwards, fully vaccinated Indian passengers will no longer be subjected to follow a compulsory 10-day hotel quarantine on their arrival in Britain, however, they would have to isolate at home or their designated location mentioned on the compulsory locator form. This is confirmed by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC).
UK kept India on the Red list since end-April when the Delta variant was at its peak and hospitals were all overwhelmed with COVID-19 cases. All regularly scheduled international flights still remain suspended. However, under a bilateral agreement between the U.K. and Indian governments, a limited number of flights between India and the U.K. continue to operate.
