We Could Have Quarantine-free Travel for Double Vaccinated Soon

Quarantine-free travel for double-vaccinated travellers could be introduced by 26th July, the first full week of school holidays.

New measures would allow fully vaccinated tourists to visit countries such as Spain and Greece without having to quarantine on return.

The change would only apply to UK residence with access to the NHS.

All EU countries would recognise the NHS app as a vaccine certificate, while the UK would recognise the EU’s digital green card under a mutual recognition arrangement.

The app would also prove travellers’ Covid status through testing, enabling them to go to countries that allow quarantine-free travel under the condition of a negative PCR test, such as Spain.

At present, the UK government is having to coordinate with individual countries that have chosen to accept the NHS app as a vaccine certificate.
