The UK government is relaxing the rules for travel abroad – but many countries continue to impose restrictions on British travellers.

Search for your destination in the grey box below to see entry restrictions and quarantine requirements.

The colour of the country’s name reflects whether it is on the government’s current green, amber or red list for travel to England. This traffic light system ends on 4 October.

While the above tool shows current restrictions these may be subject to change over the coming weeks, with the Netherlands set to accept fully vaccinated people from the UK, without quarantine, from 22 September.

However, there may be restrictions when you travel back to the UK.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has announced changes to the travel traffic light system for England, as well as changes to testing requirements. Click here to see them in full.

Similar rules apply in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, but as the devolved nations make their own decisions, rules could be different around the UK.

Search for your destination in the map below to see the current rules for travelling back to the UK. The government has announced these rules will change in October.

The new rules coming in are due to stay in place until the New Year – however, travel regulations can change at short notice. Please check the latest official government information of your destination before travelling.
