If a country’s infection rate rises above 20 per 100,000 and stays there for a week, it is likely to be taken off the travel corridor list. These countries are shifted to the quarantine list, which currently has 160 countries on it. Express.co.uk reveals the full list of countries that, when you travel to them, you have to quarantine on return.
Tomorrow Hungary, Portugal, French Polynesia and Reunion will all be added to the quarantine list.
These are the latest countries to be stripped of their places on the travel corridor list, making them tricky holiday destinations for Brits.
The Government is constantly reviewing infection rates and other figures in “a number of countries and territories,” and will be ruthless when it comes to adding unsafe destinations to the quarantine list.
The list is updated once a week on Thursdays, giving Brits abroad in affected countries until Saturday at 4am to get home.
