10-Day Quarantine For UK Visitors In India's

After India’s decision to impose reciprocity on UK nationals arriving in the country over Covid-related travel rules on Friday, the British High Commission has responded by saying it was working with the central government to make the travelling process for Indians “as easy as possible”. It also said it was cooperating with the Centre to recognise vaccine certification by a “relevant public health body in India”. The commission also said the UK was using a “phased approach” to resolve issues in expanding its travel policy for other countries and territories. The spokesperson for the British High Commission said, “The UK is continuing to work on expanding the policy to countries and territories across the globe in a phased approach. We are continuing to engage with the Government of India on technical cooperation to expand UK recognition of vaccine certification to people vaccinated by a relevant public health body in India.” According to the British High Commission, visa applications from Indian travellers for all categories continue to be processed and one did not need to be vaccinated to travel to the UK. Regardless of vaccination status, a person travelling from India must take a pre-departure test, and must take a Covid-19 test on or before day 2 and on or after day 8, and self-isolate for 10 days. Travellers can also choose to shorten their home quarantine to around five days under the ‘Test to Release’ service. India’s new regulations for UK travellers, meanwhile, will come into effect from October 4 and will be applicable to all UK nationals arriving from the UK. Regardless of vaccine status, arrivals will have to undergo tests and mandatory quarantine. The step has been taken after making several appeals to UK authorities to ease vaccine certification norms for Indian travellers.
