Pakistan and Turkey may be out of travel “Red List” of the United Kingdom as the government is going to update on Thursday its travel advisory for the countries barred from flying into the Kingdom.
According to the British media, there is “some pressure” on the government of easing the restrictions for passengers arriving from Pakistan.
There are 60 countries in the UK’s travel light system whose passengers are not allowed entry into England.
Only British nationals and residents are allowed to travel from these countries and on the condition that they stay in a hotel for 11 nights post-arrival, with a minimum cost as high as £2,285 for an adult.
It is despite the fact that the quarantine rules were relaxed last month, allowing fully vaccinated travellers returning from amber-list countries to avoid self-isolation.
Turkey is among the 60 countries but its officials said it is likely to be moved to the amber list within days.
