Removal of quarantine for double jabbed EU and US Nationals to enter England is great news - BCC

29th July 2021

Responding to the news that fully vaccinated travellers from the EU and US will not have to quarantine, British Chambers of Commerce Co-Executive Director, Claire Walker, said:

“For the hundreds of thousands of people directly employed in the travel industry and the many more that are part of supply chains, this will be welcome news. 

“The long-term recovery of our entire economy also depends on reopening the UK to the two-way flows of people and trade. 

“The government must continue to work with businesses, the aviation industry and international partners to ensure resources and guidance are in place to deal with the influx of passengers who will need vaccination checks. 

“It must also be crystal-clear in communicating the new arrangements to overseas travellers so they can have the utmost confidence in visiting the UK.

“Businesses will also want to see government do everything it can to continue drive down the cost of any tests required for travellers. These costs must not be allowed to become an impediment to the viability of businesses, or on UK firms chances of staking a place in growing markets.”
