Fully vaccinated travellers from the USA & the EU won’t need to quarantine on arrival

Hire a private jet with Falcona from the US or the EU to the UK for a safer and better travel experience. Now that the travel restrictions have been eased the easiest way to get here is by private jet.

So finally fully vaccinated travellers from the EU and the US will not have to quarantine when arriving in England, Scotland and Wales from an amber list country. The Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said the change regarding US and EU arrivals will come into force from 4am on 2 August.

Applicable passengers must have received two jabs with vaccines authorised by the European Medicines Agency (EMA), or in the US with vaccines authorised by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). However they will still be required to complete a pre-departure test before arriving in England, Scotland and Wales, alongside a PCR test on or before day two after they have landed.

Travellers will still need to take either a lateral flow or PCR test pre-departure and a PCR test on the second day after they arrive. Under-18s will be exempt from isolation, and some will not have to test, depending on their age.

  • Children under 18 who are ordinarily resident in the US and EU will be exempt from isolation
  • Those under five years old do not need to test at all
  • Children between the ages of five and 10 will only need to complete a PCR test on day two after arrival
  • And 11 to 17-year-olds will need a pre-departure test and a PCR test before or on day two

Currently the US border is closed to the UK, as well as many other countries, except for US citizens. The UK and US have set up a taskforce to discuss a travel corridor, although earlier this week the White House said it had no plans to lift Covid-19 travel restrictions for non-Americans.
