UK’s hotel quarantine policy leads to lawsuit

A law firm in the United Kingdom that represents travellers, is taking the government to court over the quarantine hotel policy.

The hotel sTate’s that passengers  must spend eleven nights in a quarantine hotel on returning from red list countries, even if  fully vaccinated and testing negative for Covid.

London-based firm PGMBM said it had called for a judicial review into the policy, but the government had refused.

The cost of  staying in a quarantine hotel is now £2,285  

More than 60 locations including Turkey, Mexico, Kenya and many countries in Africa and Latin America are currently on the red list.

The other European countries with mandatory quarantine involving hotel detentions - Ireland and Norway - have amended their schemes so fully vaccinated travellers are exempt from needing to quarantine.
