Kenya among other countries resume travels in UK

You can resume your flights to the United Kingdom, from 22 September this year as the queen states have ease their covid 19 protocols on international travel. Kenya and Egypt are among other 8 countries that have been moved from red to amber list to travel into the UK.

This comes after stringent measures to curb the spread of covid delta variant was imposed in April by the UK.

Travellers from Kenya were banned from entering the UK in April following the spread of the highly contagious Covid-19 Delta variant in the country, dealing a blow to the tourism sector.

Countries, including Kenya, South Africa and Egypt, could be moved from the Red to the Green travel list this week, said several media outlets in the UK.

Travellers arriving in the UK from countries on the Red List will be denied entry while returning Britons must submit to 10 days of mandatory quarantine in hotels.

People coming from Green List countries don’t have to quarantine and have to provide evidence of two negative Covid tests — one before returning to the UK and one on day two.

“We are finally hopeful that the UK will remove Kenya from the ‘Red List’ to the ‘Green List’ tomorrow (today),” said Patrick Amoth, director general at the Ministry of Health in a phone interview.

This will see resumption of businesses between the two trading nations.
