Travel agents receiving enquires from many Indians who want to fly to UK to get COVID vaccine. UK approved Pfizer COVID vaccine on Wednesday. British government will start the vaccination program from next weeks said the officials.
After the news of British government approving the vaccine, travel agents saw a flow of queries from Indians on travelling to UK. A Mumbai based travel agent received the queries on how and when to travel to UK for vaccine.
The agent said in response “I have told them it is too early to say. Anyway, the first in line to get the vaccine would be the elderly and health workers in the UK who are most vulnerable to the coronavirus”
Easemyttip Co-founder and CEO, Nishant Pitti said this is an offbeat season to visit London. But Indians who have UK visas and can afford to travel are approaching the platform to get the vaccine shots in UK. He said they are waiting for U.K government to confirm the quarantine requirements to enter U.K and if Indians passport holders are eligible for vaccination in U.K.
He said, his company will launch a three night package for the people want to travel to UK only for vaccination.
Meanwhile, U.K government issued the new rules from December 15. International arrivals in the U.K need to stay in isolation for 5 days and then get the RT-PCR test on the sixth day. Only if the test results show COVID negative then the passenger can relieve from the isolation.
