With the world of travel's ever-changing rules this year, it can be hard to keep up with where you can (and can’t!) go, and what you need to do before you arrive. As experts in all things Africa and Latin America, it’s important to us to keep you informed. In this blog, you’ll find all the latest information about Travel Corridors and our team will be updating you any time anything changes.

As always, we’re at the end of the phone if you have any questions.

What does Travel Corridor mean?

If a country is on the UK Government's Travel Corridor list, you do not have to self-isolate when returning from a holiday to that destination. It is important to note that the same rules do not always apply to residents of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.  

England: Tier 1 and 2 areas are permitted to travel internationally, Tier 3 areas should stay in their area
Scotland: Anyone living in a Level 3 or Level 4 area can only travel out of their area for essential reasons
Wales: Overseas holidays are not currently allowed
Northern Ireland: International travel is permitted

The Travel Corridor list is generally updated by the Government every Thursday at around 5pm. Destinations can be added or removed depending on the rate of Covid cases in the region.


Does that mean I don't have to isolate when I get to my holiday destinatiion?

Not always, as different countries have different rules upon entry. Some destinations may ask arrivals to isolate for a set period of time, while others will ask visitors to provide a negative test result. Rest assured, we will give you all of the information about your holiday destination's requirements before you go.
