Currently those travelling to the UK from red list countries must spend 10 full days in a managed quarantine hotel and take 2 PCR tests.  

An e-petition (588072) calls for double vaccinated people travelling from red list countries to be exempt from quarantine hotels and able to “isolate at their place of residence”. The e-petition is now closed and received 104,003 signatures after six months.

The government published a response to the e-petition on July 6 2021, they emphasised that exemptions from staying at a managed quarantine hotel for those who have travelled from red list countries are “exceptional and limited”.

The e-petition will be debated in Westminster Hall on Monday 17 January at 4.30pm and be led by Tonia Antoniazzi MP on behalf of the Petitions Committee.

The Library will produce a briefing or material for the debate and this page will be updated when it is made available.
