Restrictions on people travelling from the UK to Germany will be eased this week, it has been announced.

British tourists who are fully vaccinated or have antibodies will be able to enter Germany without quarantine from Wednesday.

Tourists who do not fall into these two categories will be able to cut short a mandatory 10-day quarantine by testing negative after five days.

It comes as Angela Merkel moves Britain, Portugal, Russia, India and Nepal from the highest risk category of ‘virus variant areas’.

They will enter the second-highest category of ‘high-incidence areas’.

The announcement comes days after Boris Johnson and German Chancellor Angela Merkel met at Chequers.
