Mexico remains on the UK travel red list

From 4 October, the UK will adjust its international mobility system, which implies changes to its red list.

Mexico remains in the relationship of travel-restricted countries, a measure that will result in the country not receiving about an additional $60 million, they confirmed from the WTTC, the World Travel and Tourism Council.

From this body, Virginia Messina, its vice president, stressed that the British government had simplified the travel signal it used to get in tourists and take its citizens to other latitudes after the Covid-19 pandemic.

Messina noted that part of these changes was to remove several countries to which travel restrictions had been applied from the red list, which ranged from passing quarantines to bans on transportation.

The damages from the restrictions, announced on August 8, caused Mexico not to receive up to $80 million, so the damages would add at least $140 million.

There is an economic impact, but especially at the level of reputation and perception. “Mexico has for many years had the status of a tourism powerhouse, because this does not help us and unfortunately it talks about the management of the epidemic in our country,” Messina said.

The Vice-President of the WTTC stressed that this measure reduces the confidence of British travelers seeking to visit the country in the winter, so the impact can be extended for a longer period.
