The FCDO has lifted its advice against non-essential travel on Covid-19 grounds for 32 destinations around the world!
This change means holidaymakers will now be able to travel to a larger number of destinations with more ease.
The FCDO will no longer advise against travel to non-red list countries except in exceptional circumstances; e.g if the local healthcare system is overwhelmed.
Full list of countries to have non-essential travel lifted:
- America Samoa
- Equatorial Guinea
- French Polynesia
- Marshall Islands
- Sao Tome and Príncipe
- Solomon Islands
- Tokelau & Niue
The FCDO will continue to advise against all but essential travel for all red list countries and territories where the risk to British travellers is ‘unacceptably high’. - Gov site
This update comes as part of a simplified system for international travel which has seen the replacement of the traffic light system with a single red list, and reduced testing requirements for eligible fully vaccinated travellers.
