UK now changes advisory for those going to India, 10 days quarantine and RTPCR test mandatory
A day after the Indian government’s announcement, the UK has changed its travel advisory. All British nationals coming to India from the UK will now have to undergo a 10-day quarantine from Monday. The British government on Saturday updated its travel advisory for its citizens who are traveling to India following the decision to impose a mutual ban on British visitors to India. The advisory, issued by the UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), will take effect on Monday. The British government has said it is in contact with Indian authorities to find a solution. The UK has not yet recognized India’s vaccine certification. In such a situation, Indian travelers are going through restrictions on going to UK. India has announced a retaliatory ban on Indian travelers following British sanctions.
