USA To UK Travel Corridor Agreement Unlikely Before End of July
News - UK 29-Jun-2021
The USA was due to relax international travel rules from countries like the UK last month, but thanks to the spread of the Delta COVID-19 variant, those plans were put on hold. While we all wait patiently until we can safely travel abroad again, Reuters today reports that the USA to UK travel corridor talks are increasingly unlikely to conclude by end of July.
The officials added the rise in cases of the Delta variant in Britain, the complexities of the U.S. political system and uncertainty over the status of the AstraZeneca vaccine in the United States, where it is not yet approved, were set to extend the talks into August and even September, the newspaper said.
Missing out on summer 2021 is going to be devastating to the travel industry, but the UK government says they're looking to come to an agreement "as soon as possible".
Update (14:37) - There has been rumours that the UK and USA travel corridor talks are stalled by the USA not recognising the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine because it's not approved in the USA. The BBC is reporting that The UK transport secretary said to "discount" any media reports suggesting that uncertainty over the status of the AstraZeneca jab in the US has led to a deadlock in the talks. However, he acknowledges there are "very real problems", including that states in the US all use different systems to show whether people are fully vaccinated.
