Covid-19 Update: Traffic Light System

Updated: Nov 8, 2021

Traffic Light restrictions for travel

With the easing of the UK national lockdown, the UK government have introduced a new traffic light system on overseas travel which will enable us to look forward to that long-awaited holiday again.

Please see the below information.

GREEN: You are able to travel to these countries without the need to quarantine or self-isolate once you return back to the UK. You will however need to ensure that you follow the pre-departure and arrival COVID-19 testing requirements, listed on relevant Government Websites.

AMBER: You’ll need to take a pre-departure test, quarantine for a period of ten days on your arrival back into UK, and also take a PCR test on day two and day eight - with the option to Test to Release on day five to end self-isolation early.

RED: You’ll be subject to the restrictions currently in place for ‘red list’ countries; which include pre-departure testing, a 10-day stay in a managed quarantine hotel on your arrival back into UK, and also PCR testing on day two and day eight.

Testing remains an essential part of protecting public health as restrictions begin to ease - with all arrivals who are not exempt required to book a pre-departure, day two, and day eight test before travelling.
