Weeks after UK had imposed quarantine restrictions on Indian travellers, India had final Friday reciprocated it by way of stating that UK nationals arriving here from that country would have to undergo mandatory 10-day quarantine from October 4 (Sunday nighttime).
Responding to India’s choice, the United Kingdom had stated that it will continue to engage with India to expand recognition of Covid-19 vaccine certification. “The UK is continuing to work on expanding the policy to countries and territories across the globe in a phased approach. We are continuing to engage with the Government of India on technical cooperation to expand UK recognition of vaccine certification to people vaccinated by a relevant public health body in India,” the British High Commission spokesperson had stated in a remark.
