The UK government has recently announced all international arrivals into the UK, including returning British residents, will be required to self-isolate for 14 days. This recent legislation has come into effect this week commencing Monday 8th June.
Brits may be able to avoid quarantining on holiday as plans for air bridges could be expected by the end of the month. Quarantine-free travel between Britain and some countries could be introduced at the end of this month if infection rates at home and abroad are sufficiently low.
If a mutual agreement is made this scheme will allow Brits to travel between two countries. Air bridges between Britain and certain European countries with low infection rates could be in place by the end of the month, enabling people to travel without having to quarantine on arrival in Britain.
The new 14-day quarantine legislation has caused frustration and concern for the travel industry and passengers. The current plans mean all international arrivals, except for individuals with specific careers would need to quarantine for 14 days.
Further details of the quarantine-free proposal are expected to be laid before parliament and experts have suggested that certain destinations could be exempt from the quarantine rules.
