The Current Travel Regulations In The UK

November 16, 2021 | xpath.global

Changes to UK Travel Restrictions

On November 1st, the UK abolished its “red list” system, which mandated mandatory hotel quarantines for travelers returning from countries on the list. This significant change marked a shift in the UK’s approach to international travel restrictions.

Expansion of Permitted Destinations

With the abolition of the “red list,” over 30 new destinations have been added to the UK’s vaccinated arrivals system. Countries such as Argentina, Tanzania, and Cambodia are now included, providing more options for travelers wishing to enter the UK.

This expansion of permitted destinations reflects the UK government’s efforts to facilitate travel while ensuring public health safety amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. By broadening the list of approved countries, the UK aims to support the recovery of the travel and tourism industry. All this while maintaining effective measures to mitigate the spread of the virus.

Updated Entry Requirements

Alongside the abolition of the “red list,” the UK has implemented new entry requirements for travelers. Fully vaccinated individuals, regardless of where they received their vaccine, are no longer required to undergo a pre-travel Covid test. However, proof of vaccination is still mandatory.

Furthermore, travelers who are not fully vaccinated must adhere to stricter entry protocols. Upon arrival in the UK, they are required to self-isolate for a period of 10 days and undergo multiple Covid tests during this quarantine period.
