From 30 November, anyone returning to the UK will have two days to take a PCR test. Lateral flow tests will no longer be accepted, and you’ll have to self-isolate until you have proof of a negative test result.
The red list has also been updated to include ten southern African countries - South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Lesotho, Eswatini, Angola, Namibia, Mozambique, and Zambia. To enter the UK from one of these countries you must be a UK or Irish national or resident, and you’ll be required to isolate in a quarantine hotel for 10 days.
