Travellers arriving in the UK from dozens of countries no longer have to self-isolate for two weeks from Friday.

The rules are being relaxed for arrivals from more than 60 countries and British overseas territories. However, Scotland still requires people travelling from Spain to quarantine – unlike England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Foreign Office’s advice against taking a cruise holiday remains in place.

From Friday morning, people arriving in the UK from France, Italy, Belgium, Germany and dozens of other countries will no longer have to spend 14 days in quarantine.
