The changes, which take effect on November 22, will benefit fully vaccinated people in countries such as the United Arab Emirates, Malaysia, and India.

Later this month, Britain announced that it would recognise COVID-19 vaccines on the World Health Organization’s Emergency Use List, adding China’s Sinovac, Sinopharm, and India’s Covaxin to the country’s approved list of vaccines for inbound travellers.

The changes, which come into force from Nov. 22, will benefit fully vaccinated people from countries including the United Arab Emirates, Malaysia and India.

The travel rules are being further simplified as all people under the age of 18, who have been fully vaccinated, will be able to enter England without self-isolating on arrival, The Department for Transport said on Monday.
