England to Ease International Travel Restrictions
Today, we’re announcing a new, simpler, easier system that will reduce the burden on travelers and will remain in place at least until the new year. This means you will not be required to take a pre-departure test. The Day 2 P.C.R. test will be replaced with a lateral flow, and all of this is only possible because so many people have been immunized. Nine out of ten adults in this country are there, allowing us to abandon the traffic light system and make travel easier for people while still protecting everyone’s health. If you haven’t been vaccinated, and I don’t mean for medical reasons, but simply because you don’t want to be vaccinated, you will have to take the additional test, which will cost you more money. Most people will say that nine out of ten adults in this country have been vaccinated, so this simply does not apply to the majority of people. In addition to the European Union and the United States, I’m announcing today that we will recognize vaccine programs in over 50 countries. As a result, many other countries will now join that regime, where people can come here and not have to take P.C.R. tests or self-isolate.
