The UK’s “red list” was abolished on November 1st. The “red-list” laws required those returning from a nation on the list to stay in a government-approved hotel for ten days.
The remaining “red” nations were removed from the list, including Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Haiti, Panama, Peru, and Venezuela, removing travel restrictions on return to the UK. It should be emphasized, however, that before traveling to another nation, travelers should verify the potential travel limitations and procedures.
Over 30 new destinations, including Argentina, Tanzania, and Cambodia, have been included in the UK government’s incoming vaccinated arrivals system. This means that persons who are properly vaccinated and coming from these countries will be eligible to travel to the UK.
The government has lowered the number of quarantine rooms required in quarantine hotels as a result of the removal of the red-list, while there are still rooms on standby if needed.
New rules for visiting the United Kingdom have been implemented
Fully vaccinated passengers, including those vaccinated in the UK, EU, US, and other recognized countries, will no longer be required to take a Covid test before traveling to the UK. Proof of vaccination will be required, and travelers will be required to complete a lateral flow test two days after landing in the UK. Prior to traveling to the UK, a lateral flow test should be scheduled with a private provider, and a photo must be submitted to validate the test’s results.
Those who have not been properly vaccinated will be obliged to self-isolate for 10 days after landing in the United Kingdom. They must also undergo a Covid test three days prior to traveling to the UK, as well as tests on day two and day eight of their return.
