A Brand New System, For Cheaper, Easier Travel

As of September 17th, the UK travel list has had a complete overhaul. This should make travel abroad simple and cheaper for those people who have been vaccinated. There is no longer a traffic light system of green or amber lists to determine destinations. There are now only two lists. A ‘rest of the world’ and a ‘red’ list.

So, where can I travel to in 2021 ?

Rules for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland should be checked via their respective Government pages.

Vaccination & Quarantine Rules

Rules For Rest Of The World

Rest Of The World – From Monday, 4th October, if you have received both vaccines, you will not need a pre-departure test for arrival in England. From October (dates to be confirmed), you will replace the day two PCR test with a cheaper lateral flow test.

Amber ListThis list has now been scrapped. (Updated September 17th).

Rules For Red List

Red List – Anyone traveling back in England from a red list country must quarantine for 10 days. This will take place in a specially selected hotel. A Covid-19 test must be taken on the second and eighth day. All this is at the cost of the person/persons traveling. The price will increase for anyone over the age of 13 from August 12th.

Where can I travel to in 2021? We will keep a close eye on any announcements that add or remove countries to these lists. The Government will review countries on both lists on a three-week cycle. We will update our list to reflect on this.
