Where Can I Travel Under the UK Traffic Light System?

From Monday, 4th October, the traffic-light system will change to green and red countries only. If you are returning to England prior to 4th October, the below lists apply. After this time, the green and amber lists will be combined. For those who are double-jabbed, you will not need to self-isolate or quarantine when returning from a non-red country, and you also will no longer need to take a pre-departure test. Day 2 tests on return will still be required. 

We will update our information as and when any changes are made. However, we always recommend checking the rules with your Travel Consultant or visiting the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) website, as sometimes in-destination border restrictions and FCDO advice may contradict the traffic-light list. Be sure to sign up to our newsletter and follow the links below for more information, including information on our Quarantine Protection:
