Amber list scrapped in shake-up of England’s Covid travel rules

Rules for English travellers heading overseas have been significantly simplified, with the “amber” list of countries scrapped and the traffic light designation replaced with destinations listed as either “go”, or “no go”, under new rules.

The long-heralded shake-up of the travel rules, announced by the Department for Transport on Friday, also included a significant reduction in the number of countries placed on what was the “red” list, with almost all travel not permitted. Turkey, Pakistan and Maldives are among the countries to be removed from the red list.

Another change means people who are double-vaccinated will no longer have to take a costly PCR Covid test once they arrive back in the UK.
