Sri Lanka and Israel have been added to the government’s quarantine-free travel corridor list, although neither are currently open to tourist arrivals
Transport secretary Grant Shapps confirmed the latest changes to the government’s travel corridor list in a series of tweets posted shortly after 5pm on Thursday (19 November).
Namibia and Rwanda become the country’s first African travel corridors.
Uruguay, meanwhile, becomes the second Latin American country to be added to the list after Chile was added last week, although it has a prohibitive minimum seven-day quarantine on arrival requirement – even with evidence of a negative Covid test prior to departure.
Also gaining, or regaining, their travel corridors are Bonaire, St Eustatius & Saba, the Northern Mariana Islands and the US Virgin Islands.
No countries have been removed from the travel corridor list.
