NEW DELHI: British High Commissioner to India said that Indians traveling to the UK fully vaccinated with Covishield or another UK-approved vaccine will not be required to quarantine. This will come into effect from October 11.
Alex Ellis, British High Commissioner to India thanked the Indian government for the close cooperation.
Earlier, UK was at the receiving end of criticisms because it was told that Indians who have received both doses of Covishield will be considered 'unvaccinated' and will have to undergo a '10-day self-isolation'.
The UK revised its rules and extended the inbound vaccinated arrivals system to a further 37 countries and territories across the globe including India.
