The UK's Covid Travel Ratings

This article is published in collaboration with Statista

by Martin Armstrong

The UK's traffic light rating system for Covid-related travel guidelines is updated regularly as the pandemic progresses and evolves. As this chart using government information shows, the number of countries and territories without a travel warning in place is very limited.

Australia, Israel and Portugal are perhaps the most significant on the list, however the ratings and associated rules apply only to people returning from these countries. Travelers should inform themselves of the rules currently in place for the country they intend to visit - Australia, for example, has closed its borders completely making the UK's green status for the country only relevant for people already in Australia.

Equally, while the 'amber' countries may not apply such extensive measures for returnees to the UK as for those from 'red' rated locations, both carry a "You should not travel to these countries or territories" label. Full guidance can be found on the GOV.UK.
