Philippines, Pakistan, Kenya, and Bangladesh added to UK travel ban Red List

The UK has added four more countries including Pakistan to its red list.

Philippines, Pakistan, Kenya, and Bangladesh have been added to the UK’s travel ban red list, which prohibits all travelers due to concerns over Covid versions.

From 4 a.m. on Friday, April 9, international travelers from these four countries will be denied entry into England.

Only people with British or Irish citizenship – or UK residency rights – will be able to enter England from next Friday.

Brits arriving from these nations, however, would be expected to self-isolate for 10 days in a government-approved hotel quarantine facility.

On days two and eight, they will be forced to take a coronavirus test, and they will not be permitted to shorten their quarantine time if the test findings are negative.

Many other tourists from these countries are forbidden from entering the United Kingdom.

The Philippines, Pakistan, Kenya, and Bangladesh have joined England’s red list in an attempt to protect the country from new Covid mutations, like the South African mutation.

Many other tourists from these countries are forbidden from entering the United Kingdom.

They follow the other 35 countries on the red list, which include the United Arab Emirates, South America, and South African nations.

If travelers left or transited through the four nations, they would be denied entry to England.

What does it mean to be on a Red-list?

If the country is added, all travel to the country may be forbidden, even if the restrictions are removed.

When returning to the UK from a red-list country, visitors must stay in a government-mandated hotel for ten days at a cost of £1,750 per guest.

It comes after fears that international vacations could be off the table before August to avoid the risk of new cases, especially of variants like the South African strain, being imported into the UK.

Professor Sir Mark Walport, the former Government’s chief science advisor, told the BBC Today programme that vacations are unlikely to continue due to the increasing number of regular events.

“Certainly, many countries in Europe have case figures that are rising at the moment – there are 36,000 cases a day in France, 16,000 in Germany, and 22,000 in Italy,” he stated.
