France ease travel restrictions further

Now the arrivals from France to England will no longer need to quarantine if they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

The step aligns that France with the rest of the amber list now that the proportion of beta variant cases has fallen in the country. This new move is part of a wider reopening of international travel, with Austria, Germany, Slovenia, Slovakia, Latvia, Romania and Norway all added to the green list. A statement from the department of transport said the destinations had demonstrated they posed a low risk to United Kingdom public health.

India, Bahrain, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates will also be moved from the red to the amber list, as the situation in these countries improves.

Following an assessment of the latest data, Georgia, La Reunion, Mayotte and Mexico will be added to the red list.

These countries present a high public health risk to the UK from known variants of concern, known high-risk variants under investigation or as a result of very high in-country or territory prevalence of Covid-19.

Now all the arrivals from Spain and all its islands are advised to use a PCR test as their pre-departure test wherever possible, as a precaution against the increased prevalence of the virus and variants in the country.

The clinicians and scientists will remain in close contact with their counterparts in Spain to keep abreast of the latest data and picture of cases in Spain.
