Arrivals to England, Scotland and Wales from Sweden to be exempt from quarantine restrictions from Saturday

Arrivals to England, Scotland and Wales from Sweden to be exempt from quarantine restrictions from Saturday

A number of changes have been made to travel corridor lists in the United Kingdom following the latest reviews of assessments by the Joint Biosecurity Centre.

In England, Portgual (apart from Azores and Madeira) will be removed from the travel corridors list from 4am on Saturday 12 September. Any arrivals to England from the country after this time will have to self-isolate for 14 days. 

Hungary, French Polynesia and Réunion are also being removed from England's travel corridors list.

Hungary and Réunion will also be removed from the travel corridors lists for Scotland and Wales from 4am on Saturday - arrivals to Scotland and Wales from Portugal already need to self-isolate since 4 September.

Meanwhile, Sweden will be added to the travel corridors lists in England, Scotland and Wales, meaning arrivals to England, Scotland and Wales from Sweden will no longer need to self-isolate on arrival (unless they have COVID-19 symptoms).

Sweden is being added to the travel corridors list following a recent decrease in the number of Coronavirus cases in the country.
