The UK have now added more African countries to their travel ban list

From Friday the 19th March, Ethiopia and Somalia are the latest African countries to enter the red list of countries from where travel to England is banned.

The reason for these countries being added to the list is to “reduce the risk of new variants” entering the UK, according to a statement from the Department for Transport..

“Only British and Irish citizens, or those with residence rights will be allowed to enter and must stay in a government-approved facility for 10 days,” it said.

Mauritius will be removed from the list on Friday.

African countries already on the list include Angola, Botswana, Burundi, Cape Verde, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Eswatini, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, Seychelles and South Africa.
