Can I go on holiday to the US?
The US remains off the UK's green list, and is still on the amber list.
This means Brits would need the following when returning to the UK:
- A negative test taken pre-arrival
- A mandatory ten-day quarantine at home
- Two Covid tests, taken on day two and day eight
However, double vaxxed Brits can skip the quarantine but will still need to have negative Covid tests pre-arrival and on day two, with the new rules in place from July 19.
What are the travel restrictions for the US?
Brits are currently banned from travelling to the US, due to their UK travel ban.
While the US lowered the travel warning against the UK from its highest 'Do Not Travel' list in May to Level Three, it is still closed to Brits.
Since 16 March 2020, Brits have not been allowed to travel to the US from the UK, unless they are are US citizens, permanent residents or specified close family members.
It was hoped that a travel corridor between the UK and the US could be opened by summer although due to the Delta variant in the UK, is unlikely to happen before the end of September.
Despite this, airlines are already preparing to relaunch transatlantic flights between the UK and the US.
