Covid-19 Travel Update
The government recently announced a traffic light system for arrivals into the UK - countries are placed into 3 different categories, green, amber and red. The different categories outline what rules you must follow when returning to the UK from abroad, including the Coronavirus (COVID-19) isolation or testing requirments.

These rules come into force from Monday 17th May 2021 and will be reviewed every 3 weeks. The next review is expected around 28th May 2021. Countries may change categories and go onto watch lists during these 3 week reviews.
Be Aware: If there is a sudden change in conditions, a country or territory may also be moved between lists without warning.
Remember: The traffic light system is for arrivals into the UK from abroad only. Each country also has its own rules for arrivals to gain entry.
