No quarantine required for fully vaccinated Indians travelling to UK..

During the COVID-19 pandemic, almost every Country had imposed some restrictions on immigration of new migrants in the country. Many countries even banned the international flights for months inorder to deal with the covid scenario.

One of those countries is UK that had imposed various restrictions in the area of immigration. But now, as
the world starts to shift at the ‘normal’ stage at which it was before, there were some restrictions which are
removed recently. One such restriction was of Indians being denied to enter the
UK despite of being vaccinated.

Recently, British High Commissioner Alex Ellis tweeted that from Monday
i.e. 11th October onwards, Indian travellers who are fully vaccinated won’t require quarantine. Indians who are fully
vaccinated with covishield or another UK-approved vaccine will not be quarantined when they
arrive in UK after 11th October.

Earlier, on October 1, India had imposed mandatory 10-day quarantine for
British citizens in response to UK quarantine rules for India and citizens of several
other nations. Often described as discriminatory and even ‘colonialist’, the UK government recently had
faced intense backlash over its refusal to consider visitors as vaccinated unless they received their
vaccinations in a selected group of countries.

This was seen as the inability or inefficiency of other nations around the world producing their own vaccines. India’s foreign secretary Harsh Shringla termed the UK rules as ‘discriminatory’ and warned that ‘reciprocal action’ will take

To cover up the matter, British officials said that the issue was not with the Indian vaccine but with the
vaccination certification process. After high level talks between India and UK, both sides announced progress in recognising each other’s certificates.

Dr RS Sharma, the CEO of India’s National Health Authority, said that the certification after the coronavirus vaccinations in India is a centralised national system managed through the CoWIN app and online portal and there are ”no issues” with the platform as they are entirely compliant with the World Health Organization
standards. Moreover, the British prime minister Boris Johnson said on Saturday said a few days ago that he would
keep immigration rules under review.

Also, as far as the people who are immigrating to UK as heavy truck drivers will also benefit as the British
prime minister also said that he didn’t forget about the tanker driver shortage that has occurred in the
country due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The government will issue temporary visas
for 5,000 foreign truck drivers and 5,500 poultry workers to try to resolve acute labour shortages that
have disrupted the supply of fuel to gas stations ad has caused difficulties in food production.
Boris also stated that that UK now has a system that allows them to control immigration and give them
the flexibility to do whatever they want to do. They can open up their markets if they need to. He
again assured the residents that they will keep everything under review. At the end, all the changes
that UK has made in it’s immigration sector may turn out to be beneficial for many as many aspirants
have dreamed of moving to UK and get settled in their lives…..
