The UK Government has today announced that fully vaccinated people can return to the UK without needing to quarantine from 19th July.
It is already the case that fully vaccinated people can enter Ukraine freely, although sometimes they ask people from higher risk countries with new variants to take test at the border.
This means that you can visit Ukraine and Chernobyl, and providing you are vaccinated and your flight home arrives in the UK on or after the 19th July 2021 then there is no requirement to isolate. You will just need a Covid test before arriving in the UK and another 2 days after arrival.
This news has been long awaited by many people in the UK, and also those in Ukraine with close links to the UK. There has been growing pressure to lift restrictions for some time now and after over a year of disruption there is finally progress to opening up the world again.
