From February 15, the United Kingdom will introduce a ten-day hotel quarantine requirement for visitors from more than 30 countries.

According to the British Ministry of Health, the measure aims to prevent the spread of new corona variants.

Hotel quarantine is required for people traveling from Portugal, all countries in South America, South Africa, and the United Arab Emirates. 

Visitors from other countries must be quarantined on their own for ten days, according to current rules.

The measure is primarily aimed at Britons returning to the country. People from these countries who are not permanent residents of the United Kingdom have already been refused entry.

Preparations in progress

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has previously discussed the measure, but he had not set a concrete date for the measure until Friday. 

The Ministry of Health says they have begun work on securing the necessary facilities. 

The hotel industry has said it is willing to cooperate, while the aviation industry has sharply criticized the plan.
