France, Malta and the Netherlands have been removed from the UK’s safe travel list, transport secretary Grant Shapps has confirmed.
In total, six destinations have had their quarantine-free travel corridors revoked – France, Malta, the Netherlands, Monaco, Turks & Caicos, and Aruba.
The Foreign Office is also now advising against all but essential travel to all six countries. Anyone already in-destination need not return to the UK immediately, the FCO has said.
Shapps confirmed the decision in a tweet posted shortly before 10pm on Thursday (13 August).
It means arrivals from all six destinations will have to self-isolate for 14 days upon their return to the UK.
