England’s travel traffic-light system replaced and testing requirements to change
All countries will now be on the red list or no list, with the fully vaccinated no longer required to test before returning home
An overhaul of England’s Covid-19 rules governing international travel will come into force from Monday 4 October, replacing the traffic-light system.
A single red list of countries will remain, with the previous green and amber countries becoming the “rest of the world” or “non-red list”. There will also be changes to the testing requirements when returning from a non-red-list country, if fully vaccinated.
