The UAE, Bahrain, Qatar and India have been removed from the UK’s travel red list, and added to its amber list instead.

The changes will come into force from 4am BST on Sunday, August 8.

As per the rules posted on the UK government website, fully UK vaccinated and people under the age of 18 do not need to quarantine or take a day 8 test after they arrive in England if they are either fully vaccinated in the UK or under the UK vaccine programme overseas; if they are under 18 on the day they arrive in England and resident in the UK or in a country with a vaccination programme approved by the UK; or even if they are part of a UK-approved vaccine trial.

These individuals must have had their final dose of the vaccine at least 14 days before the date they arrive in England. They will still need to book and take a test on day 2 though.

If an individual has been fully vaccinated in the USA or many European countries, and are arriving from an amber country, they will not need to quarantine when they arrive in England or take a day 8 test. They will still need to book and take a day 2 test.

In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, children aged 10 and under don’t have to test before travel, but do need to take a test two days after arrival. Those aged four and under don’t need any tests. In Scotland, children over 12 have to take tests before returning home, and on day two.

Adults can prove they were vaccinated at least 14 days prior, with proof of it displayed via the NHS Covid pass, or a Covid pass letter and its equivalents in different parts of the UK.

Also, under the amber list rules, those under the age of 18 do not have to self-isolate.

The UK added the UAE to its red list in January this year. Those arriving from a red list nation have to mandatorily quarantine in a hotel for 10 days upon their arrival in the UK. Also, only British or Irish nationals or those with residence rights in the UK are permitted to fly from red list countries.
