Which countries are on the Green, Amber, and Red lists?

 

What are the current UK travel rules?

“Before departure: All travellers to the UK aged 12 and over have to show proof of a negative test, even if they are fully vaccinated.

 

  • This can be a PCR or a lateral flow test, and must be taken in the two days before departure for the UK.
  • You’ll need to find a private test provider for this – free NHS lateral flow kits are not allowed.
  • The test can be taken either in the country where you start your journey, or in another country en route to the UK (for instance if you’re travelling overland).
  • If you test positive, you should follow local rules in place in the country you’re in, and do not travel to the UK.
  • After arriving in the UK, you have two days to take another test – which must be a PCR.
  • It’s no secret that since July 19th, the possibility of a more carefree vacation has increased, significantly. There are still hurdles that need to be considered when travelling, most of all, which countries fall into which list.”

Green list:

Fully vaccinated rules All arrivals into the UK, regardless of vaccination status, must take a pre-departure test before travelling to the UK and take a day 2 PCR test, self-isolating until getting a negative result. UK travellers can now use the NHS app to prove their vaccination status in many countries.
