Surprised the world didn't get together and does this years ago.

Seems draconian, controlling and boarder line Communistic.  Sure glad I am not from or in the UK.

Looks like Boris doesn't want Brits going to dirty unvaccinated counties 🤔

Where @BKKTRAVELER went wrong was in thinking, in Thailand you're supposed to speak first, think later, then change your mind. At least that how the government works.

And disavow or claim it was a misunderstanding.....

"Different rules apply for international travel from Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. "

 

So just use a different Airport thats NOT in England it would seem.

Glasgow or Cardiff or even Northern Ireland.

As I understand it travel from England to Wales is not allowed at the current time, read a news report yesterday that the police are blocking major highways. Would assume that England to Scotland would be the same. Wales, Scotland and NI have always had slightly different approaches to the COVID situation from the beginning.

A belated enforcement of the "non-essential international travel ban" at last.

 

Since countries started closing their borders (except the UK!) last March, myself and countless others who work internationally have had to hunker down. However, starting around last October, several countries set up carefully planned and managed quarantine on arrival schemes so that small numbers of foreign experts, consultants and other essential non-nationals could travel back to work. This is essential work that ranges from keeping oil and gas supplies open to getting fresh fruit and veggies on your supermarket shelf. Global commerce is recovering and supply chains either need to be maintained or adapted to fit.

 

Despite the quarantines, it's great to get back to work but it's disheartening now to see tourists and other non-essentials with a hankering to drink a cold bear on a warm beach thinking they deserve the same access to travel. Their numbers alone have the  potential to overwhelm these fragile air travel corridors and the bespoke procedures in place, create clusters and force border closures again. Travel corridors, tourist bubbles and Covid passports are all so much wasteful pie in the sky. The vaccines are rolling out and 2021 is the year to get the thundering herd of tourists and the citizens in their destination countries some degree of herd immunity.

 

Maybe they could all just wait until next year and not just the Brits?
