Simon Calder’s travel update predictions: What changes are likely to be made?

Sumary of Simon Calder’s travel update predictions: What changes are likely to be made?:

  • Leaks from government sources suggest that big changes will be announced on Friday, with the testing regime for arrivals to the UK potentially eased for vaccinated travellers, and the number of countries on the high-risk “red list” drastically reduced.
  • From “amber list” nations, which covers most parts of the world, vaccinated arrivals escape self-isolation, but unjabbed travellers must quarantine at home for 10 days.
  • Even vaccinated travellers from low-risk “green list” countries must take multiple tests: one before departure and another (which must be a PCR) after arrival.
  • Briefings indicate that the current complicated system of five separate traffic light categories (including the green watchlist and “super green” rules for Ireland) is likely to be reduced to just three.
  • At one end of the spectrum, Ireland is expected to retain its special “super green” status, with no restrictions on travel to the UK. At the other extreme, a red list of high-risk locations will continue.
  • This is an expensive hassle – typically adding £50-£70 to the cost of a trip.
