Britain mulls vaccine passports to reopen international travel

Britain is now looking at easing travel restrictions by allowing entry to travelers who are vaccinated with COVID-19 vaccines twice, rehashing the vaccine passports proposal anew.

Member countries of the European Union agreed last week to an easing of travel restrictions over summer that will allow fully vaccinated tourists to avoid tests or quarantines and broaden the list of EU regions from which it is safe to travel.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Britain, whose vaccination programme has seen more than half of adults receive both doses of COVID-19 vaccine, is now considering similar plans.

British Financial Secretary to the Treasury Jesse Norman said that nothing was ruled out in considering how to re-open travel, but they would be cautious in introducing plans for so-called “vaccine passports”.

Under the plans, travelers who have had two doses of COVID-19 vaccine will skip quarantine on their return from amber list countries, although they will still have to be tested, reported by the newspaper.

Countries on the amber list include Spain, France, Italy, and the United States.
