Boris Johnson: England abolishes post-entry testing for fully vaccinated people



For vaccinated people entering England there will be one less hurdle in the future. The mandatory corona tests, which previously had to be carried out after entry, are to be omitted without replacement, as British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Monday.

London – For vaccinated travelers to England there will be one less hurdle in the future. The mandatory corona tests, which previously had to be carried out after entry, are to be omitted without replacement, as British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Monday. It was not initially known when the change would come into effect.

So far, all holidaymakers and returnees have had to book tests with private, government-certified providers at their own expense and carry them out no later than the second day after entry. A rapid antigen test is currently sufficient for this, previously even a PCR test was required. This obligation will continue to apply to those who have not been vaccinated – as well as further tests before entry and on day 8 and the obligation to isolate.

Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland decide independently about their corona policy, but often base their travel rules on England, since many international travelers come to the country via London anyway. (dpa)
