Brits in the Netherlands rejoice! The UK government has announced new travel restrictions that waives mandatory quarantine for fully vaccinated travellers from Europe and the US.
The new regulations go into effect at 2 AM on Monday, August 2.
Reopening international travel
Ending what was previously a strict mandatory quarantine with a required PCR test on day eight is the UK’s latest step towards reopening its borders to international travel.
The new regulations also mean international cruise ships will head for the water once again — all aboard! 🛳
Note: If you haven’t been fully vaccinated (or who are arriving from France) you’ll still need to quarantine for 10 days upon arrival.
Who can travel to England without quarantining now?
Anyone who’s been fully vaxxed and is coming from an orange or green European country or the US can enter — that includes the Netherlands! 🇳🇱
Before arriving in England, you’ll still have to take a coronavirus test within three days of departure. Even people who are fully vaccinated will need to provide a negative test result.
After arrival, you’ll need to take a PCR test on the second day of your stay. You should book your testing appointment before you leave for England!
To enter England, you’ll also need to fill out a so-called passenger locator form. This can easily be done online within 48 hours of your arrival.
