Zimbabwe is one of 47 countries to be removed from the UK Travel Red List next Monday, British officials said.
This was announced by the British Secretary of Transportation Grant Shaps.
On the Red List, travelers are required to quarantine at an approved hotel at a cost of 10 days.
Starting next Monday, only seven countries will remain banned from the UK Travel Red List. They are; Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, Ecuador, Haiti, Dominican Republic.
Zimbabwe’s British Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Melanie Robson, posted on Twitter and welcomed the development.
“I’m happy to highlight this good news. # Zimbabwe will be off the Red List next Monday. Great news for British tourists and the Diaspora planning a trip to Zimbabwe. It will be easier to travel between, “says Robson.
The change will begin on Monday and will “mark the next step” when the trip begins, Mr. Chaps said.
This latest move is seen as boosting the separation of the aviation industry and millions of families during a pandemic.
Upon arrival from 37 more destinations, your vaccination status certificate will be recognized. This avoids the more expensive post-arrival testing requirements.
Vaccinated travelers from Zimbabwe and 46 other countries are fully vaccinated UK residents only if they do not visit the Red List countries within the 10 days prior to their arrival in the UK. Is treated the same as returning.
All arrivals will continue to fill out the passenger locator form.
The Scottish government said the change was “agreeed on a four-country basis.”
The Welsh government said it had increased opportunities for new infectious diseases and variants, but adopted them because it was not feasible to have its own border policy.
