The UAE and Bahrain are among countries that have been added to the UK’s travel corridor, officials announced on Thursday.

Travellers arriving from nine additional countries to the UK will no longer have to quarantine for two weeks.

Taking to Twitter, UK Transport secretary Grant Shapps said: “Bahrain, Chile, Iceland, Cambodia, Laos, UAE, Qatar and Turks and Caicos islands have been added to the Travel Corridor list. If you arrive from these countries after 4am on Saturday 14 November you will NOT need to self-isolate.”

Mansoor Abulhoul, the UAE’s ambassador to the UK, welcomed the news saying it would boost tourism from the UK to the Emirates.

“The announcement of a UAE-UK travel corridor today is brilliant news and a testament to the strength of the UAE-UK relationship. This lays a promising foundation for when normal international travel resumes,” he said on Twitter.

“The UAE remains one of the safest places in the world against Covid-19 and continues to have one of the highest testing rates globally. Our hotels, restaurants and malls have been up and running since April and look forward to hosting many British visitors again soon.”
