Canada Among Latest Countries Added to United Kingdom’s Green Travel List

Our Thoughts

Canadian travellers no longer need to quarantine upon arrival to the U.K., unless one of their test results come back positive.

Canada is among the latest countries added to the United Kingdom's green travel list, meaning Canadian travellers will no longer have to quarantine upon arriving in the country.

The U.K. Department for Transport has announced that Canada, Denmark, Finland, Lithuania, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and the Azores will move from amber to green in the latest changes to the U.K.’s COVID-19 travel rules.

The department noted that these changes were made after considering the COVID-19 case numbers, vaccine uptake and variant rate in each country.

Travellers coming from any country on the green list do not have to quarantine upon arriving in the U.K., regardless of their vaccination status. However, they still have to take a pre-departure COVID-19 test within three days of flying to the U.K. and another two days after arrival.

Travellers do not need to quarantine unless one of their test results come back positive, according to the department.

We simply cannot wait for flights to resume in earnest!
