Travel Resumption

Government Announces Traffic Light System to Resume Travel

The latest updates for travel to resume from May 17th at the earliest, include a ‘traffic light’ system with varying requirements in order to travel. This guidance provides information on the traffic light system and how it will work to allow travel to resume in 2021.

The traffic light system will replace the ‘permission to travel form’ meaning passengers will be able to travel without providing proof of a ‘valid reason to travel’.

The traffic light system will categorise countries according to their own Covid situation, however the government has advised that it is currently too early to tell which countries will be categorised as green, amber or red.

Arrivals travelling from Red list countries will be required to book a managed quarantine hotel package before departure, while arrivals from Amber and Green countries will be required to book test packages from a gov.uk list of providers before they travel.

A full break down of how the traffic light system will work can be found in the below table:

We advise you to monitor the traffic light system throughout the period leading up to your holiday and specifically at the following intervals:

  • Before and at the time of booking
  • When you receive and check your tickets
  • Two weeks before departure
  • One week before departure
  • 48 hours before departure
  • 48 hours before your return to the UK
