The UK is releasing a quick test at the PCR site for vaccines

British Government This was announced on Thursday (14) From October 24 it will adopt rapid tests instead of PCR-type tests to detect Govt-19 in fully vaccinated international travelers.

However, to qualify for the new move, tourists will not be able to spend the last 10 days in the UK red list countries: Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Haiti, Panama, Peru and Venezuela.

Elections to be held within 2 days of arrival in the country must be planned in advance by a venue and / or institutions indicated by the Government. The list will be available Since October 22nd.

Booking vouchers can be photographed and the image must be submitted with the passenger form on the local government website.

If the passenger gets a “positive” on the quick test, he should isolate himself and do a PCR to confirm the result.

British citizens or foreigners who have taken the second dose or single dose of the Pfizer, Johnson, Modern and Astrogeneneka (Govshield or Waxevria) vaccines for at least 14 days are considered to have been fully vaccinated in the UK.

Coronavac-receiving Brazilians are not considered vaccinated and, therefore, must perform a negative PCR within 72 hours of boarding, complete a new PCR on the 2nd and 8th day of travel and complete 10 days of isolation. There is an option to take another exam on the 5th day to free yourself from loneliness.

The strategy of change is to improve British tourism by reducing the cost of travel for travelers. The most expensive, PCR-type test in local government-approved laboratories, averages 75 75, currently costs around $ 562. This estimate is from the British broadcaster BBC.
