Majority of Express readers won’t visit amber list country this summer

From July 19, double-vaccinated travellers will be able to visit amber list countries without having to quarantine on return. Children under 18, regardless of vaccination status, won’t need to quarantine for 10 days either.

Mr Shapps said: “I can confirm today that from the July 19, UK residents who are fully vaccinated through the UK vaccine rollout will no longer have to self-isolate when they return to England.

“They’ll still be required to take a test three days before returning, the pre-departure test, demonstrating they’re negative before they travel, and a PCR test on or before day two, but they will no longer be required to take a day eight test.

“In essence, this means that for fully vaccinated travellers the requirements for green and amber list countries are the same.”

However, in an exclusive poll conducted by Express.co.uk 64 percent of respondents were against the impending rule.

Seventy-nine percent of the 1,878 voters said they will not be visiting an amber country this summer – and three percent said they were unsure.

The poll also found that the majority (71 percent) of respondents are still favouring holidays in the UK this summer.

British holidaymakers returning from amber countries will still have to pay for at least three Covid tests – costing around £100.

However, a whopping 70 percent of readers who voted believe the new rules will increase the number of positive Covid cases in the UK.

Mr Shapps did warn that mandatory hotel quarantining could return if an amber country moves to the red list.
