Countries from which travel to the UK is banned – ‘red list’ countries

Travel bans to the UK

Matt Hancock, the health secretary, said people who travelled to England from 33 high-risk countries would have to pay up to £1,750 to quarantine in government-designated hotels for 10 days. He also confirmed a new “enhanced testing” regime for all international travellers, with two tests required during the quarantine process from next Monday.

If you have been in or through any of the countries listed below in the last 10 days, you will be refused entry to the UK. This list of countries is sometimes referred to as the ‘red list’.

British and Irish Nationals, or third country nationals with residence rights in the UK will be able to enter the UK. They must self-isolate for 10 days on arrival along with their household. They cannot use the Test to Release scheme.
