Downer street confirmed that Grant shapps will give an update on Travel controls in England and hinted that an easing of restrictions could follow after “steady progress” in the fight against Covid-19.

Cabinet ministers met this morning to review the traffic light system and whether to remove the requirement for foreign travelers to take PCR tests, the Transport Secretary’s statement will follow later.

The prime minister’s official spokesperson could not confirm the changes would be permanent, but said ministers “continue to make steady progress in easing restrictions, and that is the intention of the approach. that we will adopt “.

The government would have considered merge the green and orange travel lists and reduce the number of countries on the red list for England, following strong criticism of the travel industry.

There is also speculation that ministers eliminate the need for pre-departure lateral flow testing and post-arrival PCR testing for fully vaccinated travelers.

But for unvaccinated travelers, there are reports that measures could become more stringent – even those in low-risk countries would have to quarantine themselves at home and take two tests upon their return.

Holidaymakers will still have to pay £ 30 each for supervised lateral flow testing because it is believed that they will not be able to use the free lateral flows provided by the NHS.
