Seven countries added to green list as travel rules change today – .


Holidaymakers arriving in England from Denmark, Switzerland and the Azores will no longer have to isolate themselves from 4 a.m. this morning.
Canada, Finland, Liechtenstein and Lithuania are also now on the government’s green travel list as the rule change takes effect from Monday, August 30.

The seven countries have been moved to the lower risk category for coronavirus following the latest review, as the risk that travel from these countries poses to public health in the UK is low, the Department for Transport.

If a destination is classified in the green category, it means that travelers returning to the country will not have to self-isolate, regardless of their Covid-19 vaccination status.

However, a series of Covid tests must be performed – including a test three days before the trip to England, as well as a test after you arrive in England on or before the second day.

Despite Canada’s transition to the British Green List, Canadian authorities are prohibiting entry into Canada, including at its border with the United States, to most foreign nationals, including British nationals.

Meanwhile, also from today, Montenegro and Thailand are joining the red list, which means Britons will have to quarantine themselves for 10 days in a government-approved hotel upon their return.

No country has been moved from the green or red list to the amber list, which remains the same.

Those who have received a double hit do not have to self-isolate when they arrive from Amber List countries, but those who have not been stung are required to stay home for 10 days and perform a series of Covid tests.
