The government has added more countries to the list of travel corridors where holidaymakers can visit without self-isolating upon return to England.

Update 27 July: The government announced this weekend that travellers from Spain would need to quarantine for two weeks upon return to England. 

From 28 July, passengers won’t need to quarantine when arriving in England from Estonia, Latvia, Slovakia, Slovenia and St Vincent and the Grenadines.

It comes after the Department for Transport reviewed the latest risk assessments for the countries. However, travellers will still need to complete a passenger locator form on arrival into the UK.

The government also urges people to check the Foreign & Commonwealth Office travel advice and check their insurance policies before any overseas travel.

Other ‘travel corridor’ countries include France, Germany, Italy and Spain in Europe, as well as countries further afield such as Australia, Bahamas, Hong Kong and Turkey. Click the link for the full list of travel corridor countries and territories.

Ireland is already exempt as part of the common travel area, as are the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.

Notable exclusions from the list include China, Portugal and the USA.
