Quarantine rules end today for people travelling to the UK from more than 70 countries and British Overseas Territories.
People will no longer have to isolate for 14 days but they will still have to provide an address where they are staying.
The rules will apply to people arriving by air, sea or train, and also include UK nationals.
The head of Heathrow, Britain’s largest airport, welcomed the move, but said more was needed to facilitate travel from other low-risk countries and areas.
“There are some major long-haul markets that are not included, places like Canada and Singapore that are low risk, and we want them to be considered in the next review,” John Holland-Kaye told Sky News.
“We also need to think about how we can connect some of our really important trading partners like the United States, which are high-risk nationals but low-risk in some parts of the country.”
The full list is given below and includes many popular European holiday destinations such as France, Croatia and Spain.
Some of countries now exempted from quarantine measures are:
- Antigua and Barbuda
- Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba
- Czech Republic
- Faroe Islands
- French Polynesia
- Hong Kong
- New Caledonia
- New Zealand
- San Marino
- South Korea
- St Barthelemy
- St Kitts and Nevis
- St Lucia
- St Pierre and Miquelon
- Trinidad and Tobago
- Vatican City
Scotland has begun to allow people to visit each other indoors and to allow overnight stays, as well as setting dates for reopening bars and restaurants, hairdressers and barbers, and the tourist industry.
And Wales will see pubs and cafes able to reopen indoor seating areas from 3 August.
