UK REMOVES ALL 11 COUNTRIES FROM RED LIST

The government has said that all 11 countries will be removed from the UK's travel red list from 4am on Wednesday.

Angola, Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe are on the list.

The red list was reintroduced in late November as a precaution after the emergence of the Omicron variant. But Health Secretary Sajid Javid said it had spread so widely the rules no longer had much purpose.

"Now that there is community transmission of Omicron in the UK and Omicron has spread so widely across the world, the travel red list is now less effective in slowing the incursion of Omicron from abroad.

Whilst we will maintain our temporary testing measures for international travel we will be removing all 11 countries from the travel red list effective from 4am tomorrow morning."

Currently, all UK arrivals from red list countries must pay for and self-isolate in a pre-booked, government-approved hotel for 10 days.

The point of putting countries on the red list was to act quickly to slow the spread of Omicron. Now it has spread in the community, the government doesn't think putting people from a limited list of countries in hotels is useful.

The travel industry wants all restrictions removed. It has also also warned the restrictions were hurting business

Businesses see testing measures as putting a dampener on their recovery.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said these testing measures would be reviewed in the first week of January
