What was the traffic light system and how did it work?

What was the traffic light system? – Introduced across the UK from May 2021, the traffic light system for travel included a green , amber and red list of countries all summer, with each colour indicating different rules around testing and quarantining.

Since Monday 4 October, the amber and green lists have been scrapped – there is simply a red list, for which the rules do not change from the current system, and a single list for the rest of the world.

At the time of writing (Tuesday 22 March 2022), no countries are on the red list. As of Friday 18 March 2022, all Covid travel rules for the UK were scrapped. Travellers are no longer required to show proof of vaccination, test or fill in a passenger locator form , regardless of vaccination status. Where Is Spain On The Traffic Light System The government removed the remaining 11 countries from the UK’s travel red list in December 2021. Here’s the latest update.

Which countries have been added to the new traffic light system?

Holidays to popular tourist hotspots have been given the green light for holidaymakers in England. Destinations in Spain, France, Germany and Italy will be available to fly to from July 10 at like the major airports such as Gatwick or Heathrow. Likewise people arriving from the four countries will no longer have to quarantine for 14 days, the government announced last night (July 2).

The nations are the first of around 70 set to be added to a “traffic light” system – in which countries marked amber or green will have restrictions lifted. Transport Secretary Grant Shapps boasted the change was “good news for British people and great news for British businesses.

” Yet the announcement is not for the whole of Britain, as the MirrorOnline reports. Instead, it was mired in chaos after Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland could not be persuaded to sign up. The split means those arriving into the other three nations of the UK must still follow the quarantine rules, at least for now.

And it opens up a bizarre loophole in which people could technically fly in and out of an English airport, then drive across the border. Meanwhile, unprecedented Foreign Office travel advice against “non-essential travel” anywhere in the world will ease on Saturday.

The change in guidance will set out exemptions, allowing people to travel to safer countries without invalidating their insurance.

The restrictions prompted outrage from Tory MPs, airlines and the tourist industry who warned they would prompt a wave of layoffs. But hopes the UK would set up “air bridges” – two-way deals with specific countries to have no quarantine at either end – have so far failed.

Instead the government is setting up a “traffic light” system, with countries given a colour based on their coronavirus risk. Arrivals to England from red countries will still need to quarantine for 14 days, while those from amber and green countries will have restrictions eased.

That means Brits could find themselves forced to quarantine when they arrive at their holiday destination. Currently Spain, Germany and Italy have no quarantine rules on arriving Brits, and France’s is only voluntary. The full “traffic light” list of countries is due to be set out on Friday by Transport Secretary Grant Shapps.

According to The Times, 40 countries will be given green status and a further 33 will be given an amber rating. It is reported green countries will include most of Western Europe, all British overseas territories, and Turkey, Thailand, Sri Lanka and nations in the Caribbean.

Australia, New Zealand and Greece, which remain closed to British tourists, will be on the “amber” list and the US, Brazil, Russia and Iran will be “red”, the Times reported.
