UK eases rules for vaccinated travellers, some benefit for India-UK route

Updated: few hours ago

London, Sep 17 (PTI) The UK government on Friday announced a major relaxation of international travel rules for vaccinated people coming in and out of England, with long-haul routes between India and the UK set to benefit.

The scrapping of an amber list, which is what India is currently on, means reduced cost burden for travellers – especially for the Indian diaspora vaccinated in the UK – related to compulsory PCR tests.

From October 4, the current traffic light system of red, amber and green countries based on levels of COVID-19 risk will be scrapped and replaced with one red list only.
