Great news for those looking to travel abroad, the England travel ban has been lifted! On Wednesday, July 28, it was announced that England will open its doors to fully vaccinated tourists from both the United States and the countries in the European Union.
With the updated England travel restrictions, citizens of the US will need to show a vaccine card that displays their full vaccination record. European Union citizens will need to show their digital COVID certificate. This allows tourists to freely enter England and enjoy their vacation without the need for quarantine.
These changes will officially take effect starting on August 2, 2021. Additionally, international cruises will be able to resume starting on this date.
Evan Konwiser, executive vice president, product and strategy, American Express Global Business Travel, commented:
“Other countries have proven that you can reopen international travel while safeguarding public health through a data-driven, science-based approach.”
So you can feel safe and comfortable making plans for your trip across the pond. Not to mention, removing the England travel ban will bring in billions to the inbound tourism sector, which supports over 500,000 jobs across the UK. Taking away the need to quarantine will allow travelers more time to spend actually enjoying England and boosting the local economy.
While vaccinated US citizens can now travel abroad, the US is keeping its travel bans in place due to concerns regarding the Delta variant.
