Against the background of the spread of the newly discovered Corona variant Omikron, Great Britain is tightening the rules for travelers from all over the world. From Tuesday (November 30, 2021), all arrivals must take a PCR test by the end of the second day after their arrival at the latest and be quarantined until they receive a negative test result. This was announced by the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
Important: The PCR test must be booked and paid for before entering the country. There is information on this here. The regulation applies regardless of the vaccination status and should be checked after three weeks.
In the future, it will again be mandatory to wear a mask in shops and means of transport.
Israel and Japan are proceeding even more strictly: Israel closed the borders to foreigners on the weekend, Japan will follow tomorrow, Tuesday. Meanwhile, Australia and the Philippines have postponed their openings planned for early December.
