Holidays are currently banned by the UK Government due to the rise in coronavirus cases. The travel corridor list had previously given much hope to British holidaymakers. If a country was on the list then no quarantine was required.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson made the announcement last week.

This means that anyone entering the UK has to quarantine for 10 days.

It doesn’t matter whether they are travelling from a nation previously on the exempt list or not.

Therefore Shapps has no update on this matter this week.

The current Government advice states: “All travel corridors are suspended.

“The following countries, territories and regions were removed from the exempt list at 4am, Monday, January 18.

“If you arrive in England from any of these countries, territories or regions after 4am Monday, January 18, you will need to self-isolate.”

The nations previously on the travel corridor list were as follows:

The last update to the travel corridor list took place on Saturday, January 16.

This saw Aruba, Bonaire/St Eustatius/Saba and Qatar removed from the quarantine list.

Shapps tweeted on Friday: “Travel Corridors assess public health risk from the original SARS-COV-2, but it’s impossible for the Joint Biosecurity Centre to provide live scientific updates to predict which countries or regions will now originate new variants. Travel Corridors are therefore suspended for now.

“There will be more enforcement checks & fewer exemptions. International arrivals will need to have a negative COVID-19 test & self-isolate for 10 days or Test to Release after five. This action will slow the spread of new variants whilst millions receive their vaccinations.”
