There will be no mandatory quarantine for fully vaccinated travellers from India to the UK, from 4 am on October 11.
India is now included in the list of countries and territories with approved proof of vaccination, as posted by the UK government on its website on Thursday.
Travellers from India would need to show their vaccine certificates to prove they are fully vaccinated. The UK government recognizes vaccines from Moderna, Jansse, Pfizer, and AstraZeneca (Covishield).
The last dose of the vaccine should be taken at least 14 days before arrival; the day of vaccination n is not counted in the 14 days.
For more than one month, there were discussions between the UK and India to decide on a protocol regarding vaccine certificates. When the UK imposed a 10-day quarantine even for fully vaccinated Indian travellers, India retaliated with reciprocal measures.
