Which countries are on the UK travel corridor list?

Travellers will not need to self-isolate for 14 days on arrival from these destinations.

After much anticipation, the UK government finally revealed on 3 July which destinations would be added to the travel corridor list. Previously, all arrivals in the UK were expected to self-quarantine for 14 days, but the new announcement means that as of 10 July, arrivals from 59 countries will not face the same restrictions upon entry in England.

While this is good news for prospective holidaymakers, the change is a far cry from the expected ‘air bridges’ that were originally tipped to be in the pipeline. Many of the destinations included on the list still require visitors from the UK to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival, which essentially keeps them off-limits for British travellers for the time being.
