UK eases travel advisory restrictio­ns for more countries


The UK government on Friday eased travel advisory restrictio­ns for 51 further countries and territorie­s, no longer advising against all but essential travel to popular holiday destinatio­ns such as the Bahamas, Seychelles and Jamaica. The UK Foreign, Commonweal­th and Developmen­t Office said the change means people will be able to travel to even more destinatio­ns with greater ease, covered by travel insurance. From Monday, Indian travellers who have had both doses of Covishield will no longer be required to take pre-departure and day 8 PCR tests or undergo 10-day quarantine at a declared address. This will bring vaccinated Indians in line with other eligible countries, travellers from where are only required to take a day 2 PCR test after entry into England.
