PH removed from UK’s ‘red list’, some restrictions prevail

The Philippines is amongst the 47 nations the United Kingdom removes from its travel ‘red list’ starting 11 October.
“From 4am on Monday 11 October, Philippines will no longer be on the red list for entering England,” the British government said in its latest travel advisory.


MANILA The United Kingdom in April imposed travel restrictions on the Philippines, considering the surge in Covid-19 cases and in hopes to prevent the spread of variants.

Also, fully vaccinated travelers from the Philippines will no longer need to stay at a quarantine hotel.

They will only need to book a COVID-19 test and take it on or before Day 2 of arrival, as well as complete a passenger locator form 48 hours before arrival in the UK.

The embassy, however, clarified that passengers who are not yet fully inoculated can still travel to the UK, but are required to:
• Take a pre-departure COVID-19 test three days before arrival;
• Book and pay for COVID-19 tests ahead of the trip;
• Complete a passenger locator form in the 48 hours before arrival; and
• Quarantine for 10 days and take COVID-19 tests on or before Day 2 and on or after Day 8 after arrival. (HMP /Headline PH)
