The Canary Islands, the Maldives, Denmark and Mykonos have been added back to the travel corridors list, meaning that Brits returning from the country will no longer need to self-isolate.
The new change will come into effect from 4am on Sunday 25th October.
Secretary of State for Transport Grant Shapps took to Twitter to announce the latest changes.
He wrote: “Following an assessment of the latest data, the Canaries, the Maldives, Denmark and Mykonos have been ADDED to the #TravelCorridors list. From 4am on Sunday 25th Oct, you will no longer need to self-isolate if you arrive from those destinations.
He added: “The latest data indicates we need to remove Liechtenstein from the Travel Corridors list. From 4am on Sunday the 25th October, you will need to self-isolate if you arrive from there.”
Although travel corridors are not the same as the Foreign Office travel advice, these usually go hand in hand.
When countries have been added to the travel corridors list, the FCDO has changed its advice accordingly to open up destinations for Brits,
However, you should still check the latest FCDO advice as there may be other restrictions in place (sometimes the Foreign Office advises against specific regions in a country).
The advice is also where you’ll find essential information such as any entry requirements and laws you need to be aware of for your trip.
There are still plenty of countries where Brits won’t need to quarantine after a holiday.
However, under the three-tier lockdown system the government is advising Brits to avoid travelling if you are in one of the higher alert levels (Tier 2 and Tier 3), although there is no law in place against going abroad.
Unfortunately, if the FCDO advice isn’t against non-essential travel it’s unlikely that you will get a refund if you want to cancel.
It’s still worth checking your booking policy as some firms have made amendments to their terms during the pandemic.
Travel restrictions during the pandemic can be volatile so you still always check the latest FCDO advice for a destination before planning, booking or going on a trip.
