The number of countries on the UK’s travel red list has been slashed to just seven.

As of 4am on Monday, 47 countries will be removed from the red list so travellers from those nations will no longer have to quarantine in a government-approved hotel for 11 nights at a cost of £2,285.

The only countries remaining on the red list are Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, Ecuador, Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps also added 37 countries to the list of locations with approved vaccine programmes, with travellers from those non-red list countries no longer having to quarantine for 10 days on arrival from Monday.

The destinations include India, Turkey and Ghana.

Mr Shapps made the announcement days after the traffic light system was scrapped in favour of one red list.

Fully vaccinated travellers arriving from non-red list countries no longer need to take a pre-departure test before arriving in England.

Unvaccinated travellers coming from non-red list countries, and those who are vaccinated but coming from unapproved countries, still need to take a pre-departure test for travelling to England, quarantine at home for 10 days and take a day two PCR test.

People arriving from the few remaining red list countries will still need to take pre-departure tests, go into hotel quarantine and take PCR tests on day two and eight.
