The UK government’s travel lists have been updated once again, with some countries facing tougher restrictions on travel.

A number of countries will also see rules relaxed in the latest changes to the Government’s traffic light system for international travel.

Updates to the lists come every three weeks, and the latest review has just been announced by the transport secretary, Grant Shapps.

The changes this time around are not as dramatic as we’ve seen in previous updates, but they could still have ramifications for those who have got imminent holidays booked. The changes are due to take effect at 4am on Monday, August 30.

Montenegro and Thailand moved from the amber to the red list with mandatory hotel quarantine restrictions.

The Government said that this move reflected “the increased case rates in these countries and the higher risk that travel from these countries poses to UK public health”.

Countries that are currently on the amber list but set to move onto the red list will make the switch at 4am, Monday, August 30.

If you arrive in England after then you must follow the red list rules.

Red list rules when returning to England

Before travelling to England, everyone must:

  • Take a Covid-19 test in the three days before your journey
  • Book a quarantine hotel package, including two Covid-19 tests per person.
  • Complete a passenger locator form

When you get to England, you must quarantine in a managed and government-approved hotel for 10 days. This is the same regardless of your vaccination status.
