The United Arab Emirates is among a handful of countries added to England’s quarantine-free travel corridor list, but mainland Greece has been removed.
Transport secretary Grant Shapps confirmed the latest changes to the government’s travel corridor list in a string of tweets issued shortly after 5pm on Thursday (12 November).
Those arriving from the UAE after 4am on Saturday (14 November) will no longer have to self-isolate for 14 days.
However, those arriving from Greece – with the exception of those arriving from Corfu, Crete, Rhodes, Zakynthos and Kos – will now have to self-isolate for 14 days, also starting from 4am on Saturday.
Elsewhere, Iceland, Qatar, Bahrain, Chile, Cambodia, Laos and Turks & Caicos have all been added to the travel corridor list.
Denmark’s travel ban, meanwhile, has been extended for a further 14 days.
