Stay up to date with the latest COVID-19 travels to know which countries are open to tourists, the restrictions in places and the borders that are closed...
Please note: The information in this article applies to UK travellers, and is up to date as of 9.00pm on 6 May.
All UK travel corridors are now closed. Anyone arriving in the UK (including UK nationals) needs to quarantine. They will also need proof of a negative Covid-19 test no older than three days.
Anyone travelling into the UK will need to either self-isolate for ten days or quarantine in a government approved hotel for ten days if coming from somewhere on the red list. You will need to pre-book two covid tests that need to be taken after you arrive. You will need a negative test 72 hours before your flight and will also need tests on day two and eight of your stay. Testing positive will increase your stay in the government hotel. You will be billed £1,750 per person for the 10-day quarantine stay.
The government has introduced a national lockdown which means that no non-essential travel is permitted. The travel ban is expected to be lifted on 17 May, when a traffic light system will determine where you can and can't travel. As soon as the traffic light green, amber and red lists are announced, we will have a full list of the countries on each list available so do keep checking back for the latests updates.
Ethiopia: Direct flights between England and Ethiopia are now banned. Please note, Ethiopia is on the UK's red list meaning any British national travelling from Eth to the UK will have to quarantine in a government hotel for 10 days.
