With weekly changes to the UK travel quarantine list, it is difficult to keep track of where you can travel to from the UK. Which countries can you visit from UK without having to quarantine on your return?

For the last few weeks we’ve been running a Friday article featuring the latest changes to the list of countries where you can travel without having to quarantine on your return.

Where can you still travel to from the UK?

What is more useful, of course, is a list of countries where you CAN travel freely from the UK without having to quarantine on your return.

Updates since publication:

Iceland – moved to ‘no’ as Foreign Office does not mention that five days quarantine is needed

Grenada – moved to ‘no’ due to requirement to wear a tracker bracelet and restrictions on your movement

Where can you can currently travel to from the UK?

Here is the list countries which are not on the Foreign Office ‘do not visit’ list. If you are reading this article days or weeks after the date of publication, you will find the latest version on gov.uk here.

Of course, there is no guarantee that these countries will allow you in. Australia and New Zealand are on the list, for example, but they aren’t going to welcome you.

To find out whether you qualify to enter any particular country – and what covid test results may be required – click the link under each country name. This takes you to the relevant page on the Foreign Office website.

We have added a ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ by each country. This is a one word summary of whether you could enter if you wished WITHOUT compulsory quarantine on arrival. Obviously seek your own advice if you look to book, because one word summaries never tell the full story.

There are other countries which you can enter freely as a UK resident but which would require you to quarantine when you returned to the UK. The UAE, for example, is not on the list below because whilst you can enter Dubai you need to quarantine when you come home.

Countries you can travel to from the UK without quarantine
Is the German coast your best bet?

Key:

‘Yes’ – you can enter the country without compulsory quarantine or restriction on movement, and will not have to quarantine on your return to the UK

‘No’ – UK arrivals are either banned outright or are forced to quarantine or face a restriction on movement for over 24 hours – although if you could enter you would not need to quarantine on your return to the UK

Countries which are NOT on the Foreign Office ‘do not travel’ list:

Europe

Americas

Asia-Pacific

Africa

Antarctica

    Have you bothered checking the entry requirements for Cambodia?! It’s absolutely not a simple “YES”. $3,000 deposit on arrival and if anyone on your flight tests positive for Covid, your deposit pays for your mandatory 14 day quarantine in a govt facility.
