The United Kingdom has updated entry rules. Seven countries and regions have been added to the “Green List” of travelers – countries you can travel to without being quarantined upon your return, regardless of vaccinations. Contrary to media speculation, Poland is not in this group.

Great Britain offers more changes to travelers. From Monday, August 30, 43 countries and territories will be on Britain’s “green list”, meaning they are epidemic-safe, although some are small or hard-to-reach areas.

Great Britain. Seven new countries on the “Green List”

on the updated, “Green List” Canada, Denmark, Finland, Lithuania, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and the Portuguese archipelago of the Azores were exposed. After you return from the countries marked in green, you do not need to go into quarantine for 10 days, regardless of whether the person has been vaccinated or not. However, they all have to get a coronavirus test before returning to the UK and one when they return.

employment “Red List” Montenegro and Thailand have been changed. Remember that returning from the countries on this list is associated with an absolute commitment to a paid quarantine in a particular hotel (even if someone has been fully vaccinated) and three tests. The cost of a 10-day quarantine is £2,285 for a single person. If two adults are isolated in the same room, the cost for the other person will be £1,430.

After the changes, which will take effect on August 30, a total of 43 countries and regions will be on the “green list” and 62 on the “red list”.

Poland is on the “yellow list” for travelers

to countries from “yellow list” – including the majority of European countries, including Poland – fully vaccinated people can leave without being quarantined after returning, but they also have to take the same tests. People who are not immune must be quarantined at home for 10 days upon departure to the “yellow list” countries and three tests – one before returning and two afterwards (or three if they wish to reduce quarantine).

In addition, from August 2, fully vaccinated people in the European Union, EFTA countries (Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) and the United States, as well as Andorra, Monaco and the Vatican, can come to the UK without quarantine.
