Britain eases corona restrictions for Indian travelers
Now institutional quarantine will not be necessary
Travelers going from India to Britain will now get exemption in Corona rules. The United Kingdom has decided to remove India from the 'Red List' of travel and put it on the 'Amber List'. This will have a direct impact on thousands of Indian families, students who have been wanting to go to the UK for a long time. The change in the list means that people can now stay in quarantine for 10 days at any place of their choice before reaching the UK.
Britain has said that these changes will be effective from 8 August. Apart from India, the UK has also put UAE, Qatar and Bahrain in the ember list of travel.
Till now India was in the Red List of Britain and Institutional Quarantine was necessary before going here. UK Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has given this information by tweeting.
This decision has come as a relief for Indians living in Britain who have been demanding relaxation in travel restrictions for a long time.
According to the rules of Amber List, passengers will have to undergo corona test three days before reaching England and they will have to undergo corona test twice even after reaching England. After reaching England, it will be mandatory for the passengers to stay in quarantine for 10 days at home or at any place of their choice.
