Brits jabbed abroad will be able to head home quarantine free at the end of the month as ministers are poised to recognise foreign vaccines.

Ministers will sign off plans at a Covid-o meeting on Tuesday paving the way for hundreds of thousands of expats to come home without having to isolate for ten days.

Jabs administered in the EU and USA will be recognised – as long as they are by the same doses handed the green-light in the UK.

It’s understood that expats will have to contact their GP to get their jab’s batch number processed and recognised before it is added to their NHS file.

Further details will emerge later this week, after the meeting.

Last week the vaccines minister, Nadhim Zahawi, said: “By the end of this month, UK nationals who have been vaccinated overseas will be able to talk to their GP, go through what vaccine they have had, and have it registered with the NHS that they have been vaccinated.”

However the rule will only apply to Brits or people with British residency, and won’t be open to tourists.
