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.
