UK’s decides to remove Pakistan from travel red list.

Web desk,

UK Secretary of State for Transport Rt Hon Grant Shapps said on Friday that Pakistan will finally be removed from the United Kingdom’s red list on September 22 (Wednesday).

Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Oman, Bangladesh, Kenya, Turkey, Egypt, and the Maldives are among the eight countries that are set to be removed from England’s red list, according to the British official.

In August, the UK retained Pakistan on its red list, as the country failed to meet the requirements on genomic surveillance capability, transmission risk, and variants of concern.

Providing further updates on travel restrictions, the British official said the government was making coronavirus testing easier for travel from October 4.

“If you’re fully vaccinated you won’t need a pre-departure test before arrival into England from a non-red country and from later in Oct, will be able to replace the day 2 PCR test with a cheaper lateral flow,” he said.

“We’ll also be introducing a new simplified system for international travel from Mon 4 Oct, replacing the current approach with a single red list and simplified measures for the rest of the world striking the right balance to manage the public health risk as No.1 priority,” he added.

Back in April, the UK  government had announced adding Pakistan to its red list as the coronavirus cases surged due to the Delta variant which was first identified in India.
