Secretary of State for Transport Grant Shapps announced nine new additions to England’s travel corridor list. What’s more, the Government has decided not to remove any existing travel corridors this week.

Mr Shapps made the announcement via Twitter.

He wrote: “Travel corridor update: ISRAEL, NAMIBIA, RWANDA, SRI LANKA, URUGUAY, BONAIRE, ST EUSTATIUS & SABA, THE NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS and THE US VIRGIN ISLANDS have been ADDED to the #TravelCorrdor list.

“If you arrive from these countries after 4am on Saturday 21st Nov you will NOT need to self-isolate. Please remember that under the current restrictions travel outside of the home, with the exception of a limited number of reasons including work or education, is not permitted.”

The Transport Secretary added: “We will NOT be REMOVING any countries from the #TravelCorridor list this week.”

Though arrivals will now be able to enter the UK without quarantine, the UK’s travel ban remains in place until December 2.

This means Britons can not go on holiday or travel for leisure purposes.

This is a breaking story. Updates to follow.
