UK Updates Travel Advisory, Places Nigeria on Amber (FULL LIST)

by on May 8, 2021
 

The UK government has introduced hotel quarantine for all arrivals from selected “high-risk” countries.

The tighter travel restrictions are designed to reduce the introduction and transmission of new variants of the Coronavirus.

Transport secretary Grant Shapps has confirmed that overseas holidays can resume from May 17 – but only to a limited number of “green list” countries.

All remaining countries are placed on either an “amber” or “red” list which mean you must not travel to them for leisure purposes, and on return you will be subject to certain quarantine measures.

Popular holiday destinations like France, Greece, Malta and Italy will all remain on the amber list from May 17.

Only 12 countries have made it to the green list for holiday travel from May 17 including Portugal, Israel and Gibraltar, which means holidaymakers to those destinations will not have to quarantine on return to the UK.

The government’s new advice states that given the virus is still spreading in many parts of the world, people should not be travelling to ‘amber’ and ‘red’ countries for leisure.

10-day managed hotel quarantine requirements will remain in place for those permitted to return to England from ‘red’ countries, and quarantine at home alongside stringent testing will be required for those returning from ‘amber’ destinations.

The Government rules state that you must not travel to amber list countries for leisure purposes. For those who do travel, or travel through, an amber list country, they must quarantine at home for ten days on return to the UK.

They must also take a COVID-19 test on or before day 2 and on or after day 8.
