New red list update: All 47 countries removed and their travel rules for Brits
47 countries and territories have been removed from England's red list in the latest wave of travel changes for Brits, leaving just seven red list destinations.
This means that, as part of the UK's new travel rules, these countries will be on the 'rest of the world' list, so Brits returning to the UK will no longer be required to stay in a quarantine hotel.
Those who are fully vaccinated will need to take one PCR test, on day two of being back.
For travellers who are unvaccinated or partially vaccinated, there will be a pre-departure test, as well as PCR tests on days two and eight in the UK. They will also need to self-isolate for 10 days, although you can pay for a fourth test where a negative result releases you early.
The good news is that destinations off the red list include Mexico, Costa Rica, Cuba and Cape Verde which join the list of countries open to Brits for holidays, with no need for quarantine.
To give you a helping hand, we've put together a list of all the countries being added to the 'rest of the world' list - including their entry rules for Brits.
