The UK government announced today that fully vaccinated Canadian travellers are among some countries that are not exempt from quarantine once they arrive in England. However, Americans and most residents of the European Union will not have to go through quarantine measures.

The change in the United Kingdom will come into effect on August 2. The UK Department for Transport also did not explain to the CBC News Team a reason why Canadians have been excluded from American and most European travelers.

Canadians travelling to England will have to quarantine in the place they are staying for 10 days, with a mandatory PCR test on or after the eighth day in the country. But there are some exceptions to the rule. For example, Canadians that got vaccinated against COVID-19 in the United Kingdom.

"Passengers who are fully vaccinated in the EU with vaccines authorised by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) or in the USA with vaccines authorised by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), or in the Swiss vaccination programme, will be able to travel to England without having to quarantine or take a day 8 test on arrival," the news release says.

The exemption from quarantine also applies to some countries outside the European Union, which includes Norway and Iceland. But travelers from France will have to quarantine once they arrive in England – even if they received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.
