From next week restrictions on travelling abroad for holidays and ‘non-essential travel’ will be lifted as England moves into Step 3 of the government’s roadmap out of lockdown.

Flights from Stansted Airport will allow non-essential travellers from Monday, May 17.

However, just because rules are relaxing doesn’t mean travellers can fly to wherever they want with complete freedom.

The government has put all travel destinations abroad into three categories, based on the level of risk of going there.

Countries have been put into either the green, amber or red list, which dictates what restitutions will be in place when travellers return from the countries back to the UK.

Full details of the travel traffic light system were unveiled on Friday (May 7) by the Department for Transport (DfT) where just 12 countries and territories including Portugal, Gibraltar and Israel were placed under the green banner, according to SurreyLive.

It means people in England will be allowed to holiday in those destinations from May 17 without having to self-isolate on their return.

However, the majority of destinations have been put on the red and amber lists – places which the Government has said should not be visited for leisure purposes.

Information on the green and red countries can be found here. All three lists are to be reviewed every three weeks and updated according to the latest coronavirus data.

Amber countries

People should not be travelling for non-essential purposes to amber countries. There are several restrictions in place to reflect the risks of visiting these destinations.

Before travelling to England from an amber country, people must complete a passenger locator form and take a Covid-19 test for proof of a negative test result.

Amber country travellers arriving in England must quarantine at home or in the place they are staying for 10 days. They must also take a Covid-19 test on or before the second day of arriving, and on or after the eighth day.
