Travel corridors: countries and territories exemption list
From 10 July 2020, unless they have visited or stopped in any other country or territory in the preceding 14 days, passengers arriving from the following countries and territories will not be required to self-isolate on arrival into England.
|Antigua and Barbuda||Greece||Norway|
|Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba||Italy||Spain|
|Curaçao||Japan||St Kitts and Nevis|
|Czech Republic||Lithuania||St Pierre and Miquelon|
|Faroe Islands||Malta||Trinidad and Tobago|
|French Polynesia||New Caledonia|
Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have not signed up to the decision, so arrivals into airports in these 3 countries, still require a 14-day quarantine, until further announcements are made.
At this time, the UK safe travel list does not include the USA, Canada and several other countries from the Middle East and Asia. This UK list may be added to over the coming days following further discussions between the UK and international partners.
The European Union had announced on Tuesday that it would also exclude the US from a list of countries permitted to enter the bloc this summer. Canada was included in the EU safe list.
