The government has announced plans to reopen safe international travel. But said it was still unable to confirm whether foreign holidays would return on May 17.The traffic light system is used to categorize countries by risk and travelers will have to pay for testing when they leave and return to the UK.The plan has suffered widely from the tourism industry.EasyJet said the policy risks going back to a time when only the wealthy could travel.Transport Minister Grant Shapps insists foreign holidays can resume work. "Safe and sustainable" under the new government rules.Passengers are required to carry out a coronavirus test prior to departure and return, even if returning from a "green" low-risk country.


How does the traffic light system work:

Green: Passengers are not required to be quarantined upon return. But slotxo tests must be performed prior to departure, including a PCR test on their return to the UK.Amber: Travelers are required to quarantine for 10 days, as well as two pre-departure and PCR tests.Red: Passengers are required to pay for a 10-day stay in a quarantine hotel, as well as a pre-departure and two PCR tests.There is also a build. A country "green watchlist" that can turn from green to amber.The government has yet to say which country will be green, amber or red. On Friday, Pakistan, Philippines, Kenya and Bangladesh were added to the red list, meaning travel from there was banned.At the moment, almost everyone wishing to travel from the UK will need to get a coronavirus test before they leave, purchased through a private carrier.

EasyJet chief executive Johan Lundgren that he doesn't understand why consumers can't perform lateral flow tests, which are cheaper and faster when these tests are used at work to help. To reopen the economy of the United Kingdom We take the traffic light very seriously. But with the green category, which they already determined to be very low risk, why would you have two compulsory systems for testing, one of which is the PCR test so expensive? "He said.That didn't make sense to me and I asked for the scientific reason behind that.Which consumer group? It is estimated that each PCR test - just one of the required tests - could cost around £ 120 per person.

Part of the problem in the UK is the very high cost of personal testing," said travel editor Rory Boland.The overall testing costs are too much for most people to travel or spend the weekend to almost any destination.However, the government said it would work with airlines, travel companies and test carriers to see if they could lower their prices. This may involve a cheaper test or the government organizes a test prior to departure.Mr Shapps said: “The framework announced today will enable us to reopen safe and sustainable travel, ensuring that we protect the success we have achieved with the introduction of the vaccine and deliver the warmth. We will give our hearts to the passengers and the industry when we start traveling overseas once again.

Today's report is not the grand opening that many in the travel industry need.There is a real concern, especially among lower-cost carriers, around £ 100 per person for the test, it would prevent travelers from booking tickets, where many would have to pay more than their airfare.But there are also suggestions that the government has tried to address concerns.The launch of a green watchlist to flag any country that might turn from green to amber was an attempt to avoid confusion last year as people rushed back to Britain before. Countries will have to have quarantine.There is no guarantee. But the government now says it will confirm whether international travel will restart on May 17 early next month.


How fast is the next question?

Boris Johnson initially said May 17 was the fastest day to travel abroad, although the latest plans did not confirm whether it was possible to travel from that date.Scotland and Wales' first ministers have already argued that May 17 would be too early for foreign holidays to resume.Northern Ireland has yet to announce plans. But the chief medical officer said it would be "ahead of schedule" to book overseas summer trips.The airline industry in the UK said the proposed framework. "It does not represent the reopening of the trip as promised by the minister.Insisting on the expensive and unnecessary PCR test rather than the rapid test, even in low-risk countries, creates an unsustainable burden on passengers, making travel inconvenient and inconvenient for many." Said Chief Executive Tim Alderslade.It is an additional setback for a kneeling industry and a broader UK economic recovery," he said, adding that. "All the evidence points out," you can reopen the expedition.

Don't think that right now is the best time for travelling.

I wouldn't want to spend my money on these stupid tests. The fact is that the prices for tickets and services of travel agencies are already quite high. I'm going to fly to Russia in the near future. I have already found a website on this link that can help me prepare some documents for the flight. I hope that I will not have to waste time and nerves once again.

Is College-Paper.org legit? This is a very tricky question. The company is officially registered, but this does not guarantee you quality service and fulfillment of all obligations.
