  1. Ok, next question, is anyone clear on what kind of Covid-19 test is permitted by the UK authorities? It seems that a basic antigen test (the type which is currently offered free in Germany) is sufficient https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-testing-for-people-travelling-to-england -    "This could include tests such as: a nucleic acid test, including a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test or derivative technologies, including loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) tests an antigen test, such as a test from a lateral flow device"
  2. It looks like the UK is about to start accepting those fully vaccinated from the EU https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/jul/26/covid-quarantine-for-britons-vaccinated-abroad-to-be-dropped?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other
  3.   Yes, I saw that just after I started this topic (facepalm) - so it looks as if I'm good to go.
  4. I am fully vaccinated (Pfizer BioNtech), and due to fly to the UK for four days to see family, but as the UK is now classified as a high incidence area by Robert Koch Institute, I am not even sure if I can go now if, as seems to be the case, a 14 day quarantine is required once I arrive back in Germany. Is anyone else here planning a trip to the UK from Germany soon? What are your thoughts?
  5. Perhaps someone can explain, otherwise I am likely to lose sleep over this.
