UK to Eliminate Quarantine for Travelers Arriving from Safe Countries

LONDON – June 27: The British government plans to remove the mandatory fourteen-day quarantine upon arrival in the UK for travelers from safe countries, including Spain, it is expected, a Cabinet spokesman confirmed on Saturday.

The public broadcaster BBC specifies that the new travel rules could take effect from July 6, and Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government is expected to detail next week the list of territories that will have a “corridor aerial”.

According to the BBC, this list of safe countries will include Greece, Italy, Spain, France, the Netherlands, Finland, Belgium, Turkey, Germany, and Norway, but not Portugal and Sweden, which have experienced a spike in infections.

In place of the quarantine imposed on June 8, which drew criticism from politicians and the tourism sector and prompted a demand from British airlines, the government will now introduce a security system in which it will assign the colors red, amber or green to different countries according to the prevalence of coronavirus in their territories.

At the same time, the Foreign Ministry will lift the travel restrictions imposed on March 17, in the middle of a pandemic, for countries with an amber or green rating, and will review those for all destinations.

People coming from States with the color red will have to fulfill a quarantine, which implies being locked up at home under penalty of a fine of more than a thousand euros.

Travelers arriving in the UK must still provide an address and contact details and wear a mask or some form of face protection on all means of transport, including airplanes and ferries.

A government spokesman said the intention is “to open a few safe routes” to give people the opportunity to “go on vacation abroad and boost the British economy through tourism and business.”

The source warned that the Executive “will not hesitate to put the brakes on if the risk resurfaces” and specified that the new traffic light-type system will allow rapid changes in the measures for each country.
