People who are fully vaccinated from the EU and US will not need to quarantine when arriving in England, the BBC has been told.
Currently, people who have been fully vaccinated in the UK do not have to isolate when travelling from countries on the amber list, except from France.
But that exemption did not apply to people vaccinated outside the UK.
The government’s Covid Operations committee met earlier and made the decision.
The travel industry had been pushing for the change in the rules so that people living abroad can more easily come to the UK for holidays or to visit loved ones.
However the US border is currently closed to the UK, as well as many other countries, except for US citizens.
