British officials are considering plans to open up international travel for passengers who’ve been fully inoculated against Covid-19, allowing a resumption of tourism to more than 150 countries and territories including the vital U.S. market and some of the most popular European destinations. Under the policy, which is still being discussed inside government, people who have received both doses of coronavirus vaccine would not need to quarantine on entry from medium-risk countries on the so-called amber list.
That would provide a major boost to airlines and tourism businesses, which have been hammered since the pandemic first prompted governments to restrict cross-border travel. While airline shares surged on the possible adjustment, Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s office said Thursday that “absolutely no decisions” have been made.
Under current rules, destinations are coded red for the highest coronavirus infection risk, amber for medium risk and green for the lowest risk. Travelers are advised against going to amber or red list countries. People who arrive in England from destinations on the amber list must quarantine at home or in the place where they are staying for 10 days, and take at least two Covid-19 tests during the period.
