At the same time, the authorities decided to restart the flights to and from the U.K beginning January 4, at 19:00. The flights were suspended on December 20 after the discovery of a fast-spreading strain of Covid-19 in the country. Those arriving from the U.K. need to show a negative Covid-19 test taken no more than 48 hours before entering Romania.
The decision concerning the U.K. is available here.
