Customers travelling on selected flights from the US, Caribbean and Europe to London Heathrow will be invited to take part in a proving trial to support the Government in lifting some of the most onerous restrictions for travellers arriving from ‘amber list’ countries.

 

Fully vaccinated travellers of all nationalities will be able to present their Covid-19 credentials in digital or paper format to help prove vaccination status can be quickly and easily checked away from the border and allow safe entry to the UK.

 

Anonymised data will be shared with the UK Government at the earliest opportunity, providing real-world insights to support the introduction of a scheme to exempt fully vaccinated passengers from self-isolation.

 

Participants will continue to adhere to current restrictions for travellers entering from ‘amber list’ countries during the trial period.

 

The proof-of-concept aims to support the Government to introduce exemptions for fully vaccinated travellers no later than 19 July, allowing the UK to catch-up with the EU and US, which have already introduced similar schemes.

 

Routes including Los Angeles-LAX and New York-JFK have been chosen given transatlantic air links between the US and UK are vital to re-start business, reunite families and allow people to go on holiday.
