London, October 4
Simplified international travel rules took effect on Monday in the UK, easing quarantine and testing requirements for fully vaccinated travelers from more than 50 countries, and the Conservative government vowed it will seek to regularly expand the rules to more nations.
Still, the rules have sparked anger from many nations in the developing world, particularly India, which have been excluded from the list of countries whose vaccination programmes are accepted by the UK authorities. The New Delhi government on Friday said British citizens traveling in India would have to undergo Covid tests and 10 days of quarantine, similar to the measures imposed on Indian residents visiting the UK
As part of the new regime, Britain eased entry requirements for fully vaccinated travelers from 18 countries, including Canada, Japan and the United Arab Emirates. It builds on a pilot phase with US and most European countries that began over the summer. — AP
