Italy, Vatican City State and San Marino removed from travel corridors list

Italy, Vatican City State and San Marino removed from travel corridors list

People arriving in Britain from Italy, San Marino and Vatican City State from 4am on Sunday 18 October will need to self-isolate for 14 days.

The destinations have been removed from the travel corridor lists in England, Scotland and Wales following a rise in Coronavirus cases.

The news is expected to disrupt the holiday and travel plans of thousands of people, with the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) now advising against all but essential travel to Italy and San Marino.

Meanwhile, the Greek island of Crete has been added to the travel corridor lists, meaning arrivals to the UK from Crete from 4am on 18 October will no longer need to self-isolate.

The changes follow the latest review of assessments on the Coronavirus risk from the Joint Biosecurity Centre.
