The latest review on foreign travel has seen updates to the traffic light system – including more countries added to the “red list” – where holidays are not allowed.

Anyone needing to travel to a country on the red list for essential reasons must quarantine at a government hotel at their own cost for 10 days on return to the UK.

Transport secretary Grant Shapps announced six new countries are to be added to the ‘red list’ – Eritrea, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Mongolia, Tunisia and Uganda.

He said all measures will continue to be kept under review to protect public health as the top priority.

Red list countries are said to present a high public health risk to the UK from known variants of concern (VOC), known high-risk variants under investigation (VUI) or as a result of very high in-country or territory prevalence of COVID-19.

The updates will take effect from 4am on Wednesday June 30.
