Beginning Monday, fully vaccinated Americans will be able to visit England without having to quarantine.

According to USA Today, travelers will still be subject to COVID testing requirements, including taking a pre-departure test as well as a test upon arrival, which must be taken by the second day you're in the country.

The newspaper also reported that Americans will need to prove their residency and fill out a passenger locator form.

The quarantine requirement being lifted comes a week after the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. State Department recommended against travel to the United Kingdom amid the rise of COVID cases.

Americans have been able to travel to the U.K. amid the pandemic but had to quarantine in hotels for 10 days.

According to the Associated Press, Scotland and Wales have also made the same decision.

However, visitors to France will have to quarantine because of the rise in cases due to the beta variant, the AP reported.
