There is a new traffic light system in place in England, Scotland and Wales for international travel, which categorises countries as green, amber or red.
There are different requirements on your return to the UK depending on which country category you have visited. You’ll need to check which category your travel destination is in before you go away so you know what you need to do for your journey back.
You will also need to check the FCDO travel advice for the country you’d like to visit to see what restrictions are in place for entering the Country.
