If I want to plan a trip from Spain to the United Kingdom, from this Sunday, RT-PCR “fit to fly” is once again compulsory. On November 28, 2021, Prime Minister Boris Johson, has communicated that they no longer accept antigen tests as a Covid test necessary to travel.
Faced with the new variant of the coronavirus, Ómicrom, the United Kingdom has established that all the people who arrive in its territory, must have a negative result of a “fit to fly” RT-PCR test, carried out MAXIMUM 48 HOURS before my trip. This result must be validated by an accredited laboratory.
The Guardian news in their article Compulsory Covid PCR tests for arrivals to the UK is ‘huge blow’ to travel industry tell us “the added cost of testing for all arrivals will have an impact on customer demand for holidays, adding pressure to an industry that has been among the “hardest hit” during the pandemic”
Also, the BBC news tell us in their article Covid: Travel and mask rules tightened over Omicron variant that “We need to slow down the spread of this variant here in the UK, because measures at the border can only ever minimise and delay the arrival of a new variant rather than stop it all together.”
