October 8: The United Kingdom (UK) has removed 47 countries and territories including Nepal from its red list, which was in place earlier due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Issuing a notice on Thursday (October 7), the UK Government stated that the provision will come into effect from October 11. With the new provision, passengers returning to England from Nepal will no longer be required to enter hotel quarantine.
Likewise, eligible travellers vaccinated in over 37 new countries and territories will also be treated the same fully vaccinated UK residents, so long as they have not visited a red list country or territory in the 10 days before arriving in England.
The UK Government has also stated that proof of vaccination of four vaccines (Oxford-AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Moderna and Janssen and Janssen) will be recognised from those 37 countries and territories.
Passengers travelling to the UK from Nepal should submit the proof of vaccination. -- RSS
