The updated travel corridors list

List of safe countries does not include Portugal or United States

The government has revealed the list of countries that Britons can travel to and not self isolate on their return.

The change came into effect on July 10, but the safe list – also known as the travel corridors list – is now reviewed weekly.

Changes occur frequently, with some countries having been added to the list and subsequently removed. Although holidays are currently not allowed under current lockdown restrictions, the travel corridors list continues to be amended. Always check the Department for Transport website before travelling. 

The list of countries is as follows – click the links to read more information about the entry requirements of individual countries.
