The international travel ban for England is to be gradually lifted from 17th May 2021.
It means travel from the UK for leisure purposes will no longer be illegal.
People will be able to travel to 12 countries on a ‘green list’ without having to quarantine on their return to the UK – including Portugal, Iceland, Israel, Singapore, Gibraltar, Australia and New Zealand
However strict rules on testing and quarantine will remain in place to protect public health.
Passengers are being warned to expect additional checks and longer queues at border points.
