SWEDEN and Germany have been removed from England’s travel corridors, meaning anyone travelling into the UK from either of these countries will need to self-isolate.
In an announcement made by transport minister Grant Shapps, no other countries were added to the list.
Shapps tweeted: “We are removing Sweden and Germany from the Travel Corridor list. From 4am Saturday 7th November, if you arrive into the UK from these destinations you will need to self-isolate. All arriving passengers should complete a passenger locator form on arrival.”

Earlier he had tweeted about new restrictions following a plea from PM Boris Johnson for people to stay at home after England entered a second countrywide lockdown on Thursday, November 5.
“In line with the new COVID-19 guidance, travel outside of home, with the exception of a limited number of reasons including work or education, is not permitted during lockdown,” he said.
“#TRAVELCORRIDORS do remain critical to the Government’s COVID-19 response, keeping imported cases DOWN.”
