Covid: All countries to be removed from UK’s travel red list

The system will remain in place and locations could be reinstated on the list if cases rise again.


The remaining seven countries on the UK government’s Covid travel red list will be removed from next Monday.

Fully-vaccinated arrivals from Ecuador, the Dominican Republic, Colombia, Peru, Panama, Haiti and Venezuela will no longer have to quarantine in a hotel.

But the red list system will be kept in place and a country could be added back on it if cases rise there.

The changes announced by the Department for Transport will apply to passengers arriving in all four nations of the UK.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said it was a “great boost for travel and all those people employed in the travel sector”.

He added: “We have been able to do this now because the variants of concern that we have been tracking are no longer of concern to the chief medical officers.”
