UK Travel Traffic Light System

Only essential travel has been permitted in the UK and like everyone else in the UK we have been waiting for the UK Government to release the details of the new travel traffic light system. The new system evaluates the risk that arrivals from abroad will pose to public health in the UK.

Travel light system for arrivals into the UK:

Green – Passengers will not need to quarantine on return, but must take a pre-departure test as well as a PCR test on return to the UK

Amber – Travellers will need to quarantine for 10 days, as well as taking a pre-departure test and two PCR tests

Red – Passengers will have to pay for a 10 day stay in a managed quarantine hotel, as well as a pre-departure test and two PCR tests

Today Grant Shapps has today announced the countries that will be on the green list from the 17th May will be:

  • Portugal including Madeira and Azores
  • Israel
  • Gibraltar
  • Australia
  • Brunei
  • Faroe Islands
  • Falkland Islands
  • Iceland
  • New Zealand
