Pakistan’s travel restrictions have been eased by the United Kingdom.
Those who have been properly vaccinated with UK-approved vaccines will not be subjected to “mandatory hotel” quarantine when they arrive in the country.
According to a UK government directive issued on Friday, 47 countries would be removed from the red list as of October 11. As a result, fully vaccinated passengers returning from these countries will only be required to take a test on their second day in the nation instead of being subjected to mandatory quarantine.
Pakistanis travelers carrying a NADRA vaccination certificate will be allowed to enter the UK. “From 11 October passengers arriving from Pakistan with full UK-approved vaccine will only need to take a day two test in England, no self-isolation required,” tweeted the British High Commissioner to Pakistan Christian Turner.

On September 17, the United Kingdom removed Pakistan from its red travel list. Pakistan remained on the red list for over five months. The red list rules required travelers to quarantine at the designated hotels and take a coronavirus test on day 2 or day 8 of arrival.
