So where can you go?

If you’re based in the U.K., you’ll know since July the government introduced ‘travel corridors’. The list is ever changing, sometimes with only a few hours between when you do or don’t need to quarantine for 14 days on your return.

(We don’t get it either)

In line with this the Foreign & Commonwealth Office is now providing specific advice for each destination alongside their ‘all but essential travel’ message.

So where can you go, without needing to quarantine when you get back? There are currently 14 countries and/or territories quarantine free on both ends…

Because if we can’t travel, where can we go?

*drum roll* 

Cuba 🇨🇺 – You are welcome to Cuba as long as you enter the country on any international charter flights arriving directly into Cayo Coco, Cayo Cruz, Cayo Guillermo, Cayo Santa Maria or Cayo Largo del Sur.

Cyprus 🇨🇾 the UK is in Cyprus’ Category B: this means that tourists are permitted to travel to Cyprus, but they need to provide a negative test on arrival, obtained within 72 hours before travel. You can show your test results via SMS and/or email.

Faroe Islands 🇫🇴 – Visitors must take a COVID-19 test on arrival. Testing is free of charge up until and including 30th September. From the 1st October, visitors will have to pay for their own test, which will cost between DKK 390-500 (about £48-£62).
