Britain’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Agency is giving 51 countries relaxed travel advice to match the reductions on the government’s red list announced yesterday.
Countries for which the government will immediately reduce its recommendation against “everything but essential travel” based on the current Covid-19 risk assessment include: Bahamas, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Jamaica, Martinique, Palau, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Western Sahara. .
Starting Monday, when there are only seven countries on the red list, suggestions on everything except essential travel will be reduced to 42 destinations, including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Indonesia, Mexico, the Philippines and South Africa. See full list below.
The change means that passengers arriving at the destination are more likely to be insured, most of which are guided by official advice from the FCDO.
“These reforms facilitate the promotion of foreign travel, commerce, tourism and connecting friends and families. I am delighted that the safe opening of travel will allow people to take personal responsibility and travel to many destinations around the world, Chancellor Liz Truss said.
The latest change follows a discount in travel tips for 32 destinations announced earlier this week.
The FCDO says it no longer recommends travel to non-Red List countries for COVID-19 reasons, except in exceptional circumstances, such as the local health system being overloaded.
Starting Monday, October 11, the FCDO will remove its advisory from all essential travel: Angola, Argentina, Bolivia, Botswana, Brazil, Cape Verde, Chile, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Costa Rica, Cuba, Eritrea, Eswatini, Ethiopia, Georgia , Guyana. , Indonesia, Lesotho, Malawi, Mexico, Mongolia, Montenegro, Mozambique, Myanmar (Burma), Namibia, Nepal, Paraguay, Philippines, Reunion, Rwanda, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Sudan, Suriname, Tanzania, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, Tunisia, Uganda, Uruguay, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
