New Travel Rules from 4 October 2021

New travel rules
The new travel rules from 4 October mean new possibilities for travel

On 17 September 2021, the government announced that new travel rules for travelling from or returning to England will change on Monday 4 October 2021. At 4am on Wednesday 22 September 2021, eight countries will move from the red list.

Today’s changes mean a simpler, more straightforward system. One with less testing and lower costs, allowing more people to travel, see loved ones or conduct business around the world while providing a boost for the travel industry.

Passengers who aren’t recognised as being fully vaccinated with authorised vaccines and certificates under England’s international travel rules, will still have to take a pre-departure test, a day 2 and day 8 PCR test and self-isolate for 10 days upon their return from a non-red list country under the new two-tiered travel programme.
