Indian Govt. Announced 10-day Mandatory Quarantine for All UK Travelers, Irrespective of Vaccination


The implementation of new regulations will be in effect from October 4, 2021. There could be a simple reason behind this, that is, the UK government is also implementing new travel regulations. These regulations do not exempt Covishield-vaccinated Indians from mandatory quarantine.

India has also announced a mandatory 10-quarantine for all the passengers who will be arriving from the United Kingdom. The Indian government does not want to take more risks, that’s why new regulations come into play, irrespective of the vaccination status of the passengers.

Though, the passengers have to undergo an RT-PCR test within 72 hours before travel. Once, they land in India, they have to follow mandatory quarantine rules for 10-days, but on day 8 they have to take the RT-PCR again. This mandatory quarantine can take place at their permanent residence or at the hotel. The United Kingdom is also following the same rules.

The UK government does not consider Covishield as a vaccine. Now, this might be shocking for some of the travelers who are planning to go to the United Kingdom. And, it did not mention Covishield in the list of its approved vaccines.

Later the vaccine got a spot on the list but now it is not accepting the Cowin certificate which testifies that the person has undergone vaccination. Obviously, it means that Indians who took Covishield vaccine in India, are non-vaccinated travelers and all of them have to undergo quarantine once they land in the UK.

Numerous meetings did happen between Indian and the United Kingdom representatives. Out of these several meetings, one was attended by the National Health Authority chairman RS Sharma and the UK high commissioner Alex Ellis.

The main objective behind these meetings was regarding the new traveling regulations of both nations. As soon as the meeting ended, both the representatives showed expression of satisfaction and said there is no problem regarding Covishield or the certificate anymore.

According to the reports, India is still pondering to include the full date of birth on the certificate for travelers. If India will keep on pondering like this then this issue will take years to reach a mutual conclusion. Actually, Covishield is a formulation of the Oxford-Astrazeneca vaccine and India did export this vaccine to the United Kingdom. According to the Indian government, the certificate confirms all the standards of the World Health Organization.
