Britain removes return quarantine for “less risky” countries, including Spain

British tourists do not have to undergo a quarantine on their return to the UK if they visit next Friday, countries that have been classified as “least risky” such as Spain, Italy, France and Germany, Minister of Transport Grant Shapps has announced.

“Passengers returning to the UK from certain destinations or traveling to the UK from there no longer need to be isolated on arrival from July 10,” Shapps said.

Conversely, anyone wishing to enter the UK after visiting an area that has not been classified for the past 14 days must isolate themselves and provide their contact details upon arrival.
