The UK’s Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs and Development Agency is offering convenient travel advice to 51 countries to match the reduction in the government’s red list announced yesterday.
Countries that the government will immediately reduce its recommendation against “all but essential travel” based on the current Covid-19 risk assessment include: the Bahamas, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Jamaica, Martinique, Palau, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Western Sahara. .
From Monday, when only seven countries are on the red list, advice on everything but essential travel will be scaled back to 42 destinations, including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Indonesia, Mexico, the Philippines and South Africa. See the full list below.
The change means that passengers arriving at destinations are more likely to be insured, most of whom are guided by official advice from the FCDO.
“These improvements facilitate travel abroad, boosting trade and tourism and connecting friends and families. I am delighted that the safe opening of travel will allow people to take personal responsibility and visit many destinations around the world,” said Chancellor Liz Truss.
The latest change comes after the relaxation of travel advice to 32 destinations announced earlier this week.
The FCDO says it no longer recommends travel to countries not on the red list for causes of Covid-19, except in rare cases, such as if the local health care system is overburdened.
Starting Monday, October 11, FCDO will cancel its advice from all essential travel: Angola, Argentina, Bolivia, Botswana, Brazil, Cape Verde, Chile, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Costa Rica, Cuba, Eritrea, Eswatini, Ethiopia, Georgia, Guyana. , Indonesia, Lesotho, Malawi, Mexico, Mongolia, Montenegro, Mozambique, Myanmar (Burma), Namibia, Nepal, Paraguay, Philippines, Reunion, Rwanda, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Sudan, Suriname, Tanzania, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, Tunisia, Uganda, Uruguay, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
