After getting a befitting reply from India, Britain has now announced to end the condition of quarantine for Indian travelers. Britain said on Thursday that Indian travelers going to the UK will not have to be in quarantine from October 11, taking both doses of Kovidshield or any other vaccine approved by its government.
Earlier, the UK government had made a 10-day quarantine mandatory for Indian travelers going to the UK. This new rule of Britain came into effect from 4 October. British High Commissioner to India Alex Ellis issued a video message saying that Indian travelers going to the UK will not have to be in quarantine from 11 October for those taking Covishield or any other UK-approved vaccine. However, he has kept silence about India’s indigenous corona vaccine vaccine certificate.

India gave a befitting reply
Let us inform that earlier this month, India gave a befitting reply to the British government for not recognizing the Indian Corona Vaccine Certificate. India has made it necessary for people coming from Britain to stay in quarantine for 10 days. Britain has not yet recognized India’s Corona Vaccine Certificate, on which this decision was taken in retaliation.
Quarantine is necessary after taking the vaccine
These new ones issued by India have come into effect from October 4. People having citizenship of any country are not exempted from these rules. Every passenger coming from Britain will have to stay in Quarantine for 10 days. Not only this, no provision has been made for the status of vaccination for this. Even though the incoming passenger has had two vaccines of the corona vaccine, he will have to remain in isolation.
