England to Eliminate Covid Testing for Vaccinated Travelers

England will end Covid-19 testing requirements for fully vaccinated inbound adult travelers and for all inbound travelers under age 18 beginning February 11 at 4:00 a.m. Passengers entering England who are fully vaccinated will no longer be required to book a Day-2 arrivals test.

Passengers who are not fully vaccinated will continue to be required to take a pre-departure test as well as a Day-2 PCR test, however the requirement for a Day-8 PCR test is also being removed from February 11th.  

All passengers will still be required to complete a Passenger Locator Form (PLF) prior to their arrival in England.

The U.K. will also ease restrictions for unvaccinated inbound adult travelers by ending the mandatory 10-day self-isolation period. Instead, beginning Feb. 11, unvaccinated adults can avoid quarantine by showing a negative Covid-19 test prior to departure to the U.K. and by taking a PCR test within two days of arrival.

Official: EU to Introduce New Individual-Based Travel Restrictions From February 1 – SchengenVisaInfo.com According to today’s decision of the Council, all restrictions to free movement should be lifted for travelers holding an EU digital COVID certificate that proves the same has been vaccinated with at least two COVID-19 vaccines in the last 270 days, a certificate of recovery from COVID-19 issued in the last 180 days, or a negative result of a test taken in the last 72 hours if it is PCR or the last 24 hours if it is a rapid antigen test.

Entry requirements and travel restrictions change often, so check the Sherpa site before you travel.
