Zimbabwe removed from UK’s ‘red list’ zone countries
Covid-19 fully vaccinated Zimbabweans travelling to the United Kingdom will, starting this coming Monday, not be required to first go through mandatory hotel quarantine before they could be allowed into the European country.
This follows the country’s removal from the list of red zone countries by the UK on Thursday.
Zimbabwe, now considered a low risk Covid-19 country, is among the 47 countries that benefited from the amnesty in a major overhaul of England’s Covid travel restrictions which came into effect on 4 October.
The announcement was made by the UK secretary of state for transport Grant Shapps Thursday.
According to Shapps, only seven countries remain on their red list and their citizens travelling to the UK would still be required to undergo a mandatory quarantine period.
Arrivals from red list countries must undertake a 10-day stay in a managed quarantine hotel, pre-departure testing and mandatory PCR testing on or before day two and on or after day eight.
You can only enter the UK if you are a British or Irish National, or have UK residence rights.
The countries joining the “rest of the world” list from 4.00am on Monday 11 October are:
Congo (Democratic Republic)
Trinidad and Tobago
