The United Kingdom has confirmed that it will implement its “traffic light” ranking system for resuming international travel and will lift current restrictions on 12 “green list” countries, including Australia, Israel, New Zealand, Portugal and Singapore. The changes will take effect May 17.
Analysis & Comments: The implementation of the “traffic light” system is welcome news that will ease travel procedures for travelers to and from 12 countries/territories. Travelers should treat the news with caution, however, as the countries on the “green list” are subject to change and may have their own restrictions for outbound travelers from the U.K.
Leisure and non-essential business travel still remains suspended for travel to most countries, and even those traveling to and from “green list” countries will need to follow testing protocol before departing and following arrival in England. Travelers are also reminded that different rules apply for inbound travel to Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, which have yet to update their guidance on any changes from May 17.
The response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, and Deloitte will provide additional updates as information becomes available. Please check Deloitte’s COVID-19 Digital Map, for information on travel restrictions and immigration changes in the U.K. and other countries.
