UK travel corridors: Sri Lanka, Rwanda, Namibia and Israel added to quarantine-free list

The other additions are Uruguay, Bonaire, St Eustatius and Saba, the Northern Mariana Islands and the US Virgin Islands.

It means travellers arriving into England, Wales and Northern Ireland from these countries will no longer have to quarantine for two weeks, and presents the potential for winter sun holidays to some of these destinations once leisure travel restrictions are lifted.

Transport secretary Grant Shapps tweeted: “If you arrive from these countries after 4am on Saturday 21st Nov you will NOT need to self-isolate.  

“Please remember that under the current restrictions travel outside of the home, with the exception of a limited number of reasons including work or education, is not permitted.”

He added that no countries have been removed from the list this week.

The destinations added to the travel corridors list are now also exempt from the Foreign Office’s (FCDO) blanket advisory against all non-essential international travel.

Of the countries listed above, only Rwanda and Namibia appear to be letting British nationals enter the country for non-essential reasons at present.

The travel corridor for Israel applies to Israel and Jerusalem in their entirety. For the Occupied Palestinian Territories, only East Jerusalem is included in the travel corridor; the remainder of the Occupied Palestinian Territories are not included.  

The list of countries exempt from quarantine upon arrival into the UK continues to be updated on a weekly basis, despite the fact that nearly all travel is currently prohibited in England.
