No UK quarantine for fully vaccinated Indians with Covishield: British envoy

The UK announced Thursday that Indians, fully vaccinated with Covishield or any other UK-approved vaccine, will not have to go into quarantine when they travel to the country on 11 October.

On Twitter, the British High Commissioner in India, Alex Ellis, said: “No quarantine for Indian travelers to the UK fully vaccinated with Covishield or another vaccine approved in the UK since 11 October.”

Weeks after the UK imposed quarantine restrictions on Indian travelers, India reciprocated last Friday by stating that UK citizens arriving here from that country should undergo mandatory 10-day quarantine from 4 October (Sunday midnight).

Responding to India’s decision, the UK had said that will continue to engage with India to expand recognition of Covid-19 vaccine certification. “The UK is continuing to work to expand the policy to countries and territories around the world with a step-by-step approach. We continue to engage with the Indian government on technical cooperation to expand UK recognition of vaccine certification to people vaccinated by a competent public health body in India, ”the UK High Commission spokesman said in a statement.
