The UK Pulls Countries From Its COVID-19 Travel Red List

The U.K. is set to reduce the number of countries on its Covid-19 travel red list from 54 to seven, the government reportedly said.

South Africa, Brazil, and Mexico come off the red list, which requires travelers to quarantine in an approved hotel at their cost for 10 full days.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said the changes begin on Monday and “mark the next step” in opening travel.

This latest move will be seen as a boost to the airline industry and families separated during the pandemic.

Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, Ecuador, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic remain on the red list.
