The UK government has scrapped the need for people travelling from more than 50 countries to have to self-isolate for 14 days. The quarantine restrictions came into force in early June in an effort to minimise coronavirus infections in the UK, but were heavily criticised by the travel industry.
People coming to the UK from countries such as Germany, Italy and Germany will be able to continue with their holiday or business unhindered. Crucially, UK tourists to some of those countries won't have to self-isolate, either. However, Scotland requires people travelling from Spain to quarantine, and Serbia has been removed from the quarantine-free list for all of the UK.
