How did India reciprocate on UK's travel restrictions?
India has earlier provided a warning to UK that the government will introduce a reciprocal action if India's Covishield vaccine is not considered as legal. Since there was not further action or consideration, the Indian government had declared that starting from 4th October, 2021, all UK nationals arriving to India from UK have to undergo the mandatory PCR tests and 10 days quarantine on arrival.
Current stance of UK on the travel and vaccine restrictions
As per the British high commission in India, the United Kingdom is negotiating and discussing with India for recognising the vaccine certificates. Detailed technical discussions are ongoing with the builders of the CoWIN app and the NHS app to resolve the certificate crisis. The Commission spokesperson has emphasised on UK's eagerness to open travel for India and to welcome the Indian travellers, business associates and the students.
Final decisions are still awaited as many Indian and UK travellers are eagerly looking for the relaxations on the movement between the 2 countries. Till then we need to wait and watch.
