The United Kingdom will abolish quarantine for almost all countries, the Sunday Telegraph reports, citing sources.
The current ‘red list’ of 54 countries will be slashed to as few as nine. The changes, that are expected to be announced on Thursday, will allow travellers to visit those countries without having to self-isolate on their return.
South Africa, Brazil and Mexico are expected to be opened up to quarantine-free travel in time for the October half-term break.
The changes are likely to result in a surge of bookings, boosting airlines and travel companies that have been brought to their knees during the pandemic.
The UK’s hotel quarantine policy for higher risk countries costs £2,285 an adult, deterring global travel.
