Gloria Guevara, WTTC President & CEO, said: 'WTTC welcomes this major step by the UK government which opens the doors to travellers arriving into England with proof of a negative COVID-19 test, no matter what the type of test they take'.

“Giving equal validity to every COVID-19 test takes away the concern travellers may have that their test may not be accepted and thus face the prospect of being forced into an unnecessary quarantine.

“It also means tests of every type will be more affordable and accessible for travellers seeking to enter the UK safely, with proof of a negative test, and further reduce the risk of exporting the virus.

“This action compliments similar action taken in the US - and many other countries around the world - which have introduced an ‘open door’ policy to get safe travel moving with acceptable pre-boarding COVID-19 negative tests, such as PCR and rapid antigen tests.”
