The United Kingdom has announced that the remaining COVID-19 international travel restrictions for all passengers will be lifted at 4 a.m. on Friday, March 18.
The UK government, which made the announcement on its website, stated that it would lift the remaining restrictions on international travel for all passengers ahead of the Easter holidays. Grant Shapps, the Transport Secretary, was quoted in the statement as saying these things.
“As one of the first major economies to lift all remaining COVID-19 travel restrictions, this is a watershed moment for passengers, as well as the travel and aviation industries.”
“From 4am Friday 18 March, all COVID-19 travel restrictions will be lifted, including the passenger locator form (PLF) for arrivals into UK, as well as all tests for passengers who do not qualify as vaccinated.
“This change, therefore, removes the need for unvaccinated passengers to take a pre-departure test and a day 2 arrival test,” the statement said.
