The Foreign Office has added a number of new countries to the list exempt from its advice against all but essential travel.
Among the new additions are Sri Lanka, Cuba and the Cook Islands.
The others added are Aruba, Curacao, Falkland Islands, Guadeloupe, St Maarten, St Martin and St Barthélemy, British Indian Ocean Territory, Cambodia, Fiji, Laos, New Caledonia, Samoa, St Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha.
However, not all of the new additions to the FCO "safe list" are on the Department for Transport’s quarantine exemption list. These are: Sri Lanka, Cuba, the Cook Islands, St Maarten, St Martin and St Barthelemy, Cambodia and Samoa.
Moreover, it is best to check the entry requirements of each individual country, as not all countries are currently accepting tourists.
