NEW DELHI: You will no longer require a negative report from a pre-departure RT-PCR test if you are headed to the UK.
“Good news for travellers from India to UK – lightening of testing requirements including scrapping pre departure test requirement,” British High Commissioner to India Alex Ellis Tweeted Thursday.
The official twitter handle of UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Thursday: “From 4 am January 7, fully vaccinated adults and under 18s don’t need to take a pre-departure test before entering England. From 4 am, January 9, fully vaccinated adults and children over 5 must take a post-arrival lateral flow test. A PCR is only required if they test positive.”
“From January 11 in England, people who receive a positive lateral flow test for Covid-19 won’t be required to take a confirmatory PCR test. They should continue to self-isolate,” it added.
