This is official. Until Boris Johnson’s government on July 19, travelers from the UK with the full vaccine – i.e. with two shots of the vaccine 14 days ago – would no longer have to meet the mandatory forty days to come to the countries on the amber list. In the United Kingdom, Portugal began adding a list of 140 countries and from June.
The move was announced this Thursday by British Transport Minister Grant Shops “The Telegraph” in progress. “July 19 marks the next stage in the reopening of international travel with caution,” Shops told reporters before the House of Commons this morning.
This change in the mandatory segregation rules could trigger tourism in the country, i.e. in Alcarve, the rate of reservation cancellations has risen sharply since the country was added to the amber list on June 8th.
Until now, any resident who traveled to Portugal (among other countries) by the British government had to be isolated for ten days. With this change, vaccinated passengers have one test before returning to the UK and another PCR test on the second day after arrival.
A spokesman for EasyJet told the British newspaper that the airline had “kept its aircraft and crew ready and was ready to resume operations as soon as possible,” while confirming the growing number of flights scheduled for the Virgin Atlantic. Sonia Davis, Scott Dunn’s CEO, said the tour operator was “ready for this demand increase”. Keep in mind that Portugal is one of the favorite summers for British tourists.
This is one of the new features that will be implemented in the UK from July 19. The obligation to wear the mask will end, but the recommendations will continue, so people can choose what to do. Already closed contracts can be reopened, including discos.
As of July 19, residents of the UK will no longer comply with the one-meter rule on legal limits for social distance and indoor and outdoor gatherings, and telecommunications guidelines will disappear.
By removing these restrictions, Boris Johnson’s government expects the number of daily cases to reach 100,000 by the summer. “When we come to July 19, we estimate that the number of cases will now double, to about 50,000 new cases a day,” he told the BBC last Tuesday.
