July 29. The U.K. government on July 27 said that as of Aug. 2, fully vaccinated Americans can enter England and Scotland without a mandatory quarantine. They will still need to take a pre-departure test and a PCR test on or before Day Two of arrival. No quarantine will be required, unless an individual tests positive.
Unvaccinated visitors will still be required to quarantine for 10 days, as well as take a pre-departure test and tests on or before Day Two, and on or after Day Eight of arriving.
All visitors must complete a U.K. passenger locator form, which can be filled out online within 48 hours of arriving. Travelers can find test providers in England and Scotland by visiting the test provider website.
In response ot the U.K. government’s announcement, the World Travel & Tourism Council noted that it should prove to be a huge boost to the U.K. economy. At the same time WTTC noted that the U.S. continues to require British travelers to the U.S. to quarantine, so there has been no reciprocity on border policies—at least not yet. Indeed, President Joe Biden’s administration this week just extended border closures for U.K., European, Canadian and Mexican travelers to the U.S. for at least another month.
