Flights from Britain to the north are set to resume on July 16 albeit with strict health measures in place – requiring three PCR or coronavirus tests.
The north’s health committee said the decision was taken due to the reduction of cases in the Britain.
Travellers from Britain must furnish a negative PCR test valid within the previous three to five days of travel. Upon arrival they will undergo a second test and a seven-day quarantine. Upon completing quarantine, they will take a third test.
The health committee announcement reiterated that a negative PCR test result within the last 72 hours is required for travellers from countries in Category A, but quarantine is not necessary.
Those who have not taken a test will be tested and quarantined by the ‘health ministry’ but the traveller will bear the cost of the procedures.
According to the announcement, travellers from Category C countries will need a negative test result within the last 72-120 hours. A second test is mandatory upon arrival in the north and will undergo a 14-day quarantine at centres allocated by the ‘health ministry’.
