From the 11th of Feburary 2022 all travellers that have received two doses of an approved vaccination or one dose of a Janssen/J+J vaccine will no longer need to take a pre-departure or post-arrival COVID test when departing and arriving to England.
The change will be introduced in time for the half-term break.
All that fully vaccinated people will be required to do when they travel to the UK is to verify their status, via a passenger locator form.
Under-18s will continue to be treated as eligible double-vaccinated passengers.
12- to 15-year-olds will be able to prove their vaccination status via the digital NHS pass for international outbound travel.
The UK is also set to recognise vaccine certificates from 16 more countries, including China and Mexico, bringing the vaccine recognition total to more than 180 countries and territories worldwide.
