02 Apr COVID-19: Pakistan, Kenya, Bangladesh and the Philippines added to England’s travel ‘red list’ | Politics News
Pakistan, Kenya, Bangladesh and the Philippines have been added to England’s coronavirus red list.
The move, which will take effect from 4am on Friday, 9 April, means international visitors who have departed from or transited through those nations in the previous 10 days will be barred from entering.
British and Irish citizens and those with residence rights in the UK will be allowed to enter, but will have to arrive at a designated port and then pay to stay in a government-approved quarantine hotel for 10 days.
The move is in response to concerns about new variants of COVID-19, like those first detected in South Africa and Brazil.
