Read more at www.cambridge-news.co.uk

Fully-vaccinated UK residents arriving into England from amber list countries will no longer need to quarantine from July 19, the Transport Secretary announced this week.

The 10-day self-isolation period will be scrapped as lockdown fully lifts, Grant Shapps told Parliament, as well as guidance not to travel to countries in this ambiguous Covid territory.

Holidaymakers will still have to pay for coronavirus tests before and after their trips, however.

Those travelling to and from amber list destinations like France, Spain, and Portugal will be required to take a Covid test three days before returning, as well as on or before the second day, but will be exempt from the day eight test.

For green list destinations, such as Malta, you’ll need to take a Covid test, book and pay for a day two Covid test, to be taken after arrival in England, and complete a passenger locator form, HertsLive reports.

In his announcement on Thursday, Mr Shapps added that under-18s will also be exempt from the quarantine requirement, reports HertfordshireLive.

More double-jabbed Brits, and their children, are likely to be eyeing up overseas holidays this year as a result of the loosening restrictions.
