Your travel planning got slightly easier on Thursday when Grant Shapps announced that a number of countries and territories have been removed from the 14-day self isolation list.
- Israel (Tel Aviv pictured below)
- Sri Lanka
- St Eustatius & Saba
- Northern Mariana Islands (no, me neither!)
- US Virgin Islands
From 4am on Saturday 21st November, anyone returning to England from these countries will NOT have to self isolate for fourteen days.
This doesn’t mean, of course, that all of the countries above are willing to let you in!
No countries have been added to the quarantine list this week.
The Government has not yet amended the list of countries exempt from the Foreign Office ‘do not travel’ list (click here, but the standalone list has been temporarily removed for the November lockdown).
The official ‘travel corridor’ list is on this page of the Government website.
