India to be added to UK's red list from Friday 23 April

India has been added to the UK’s red list of travel destinations, with ten-day hotel quarantine restrictions to be introduced from 4am on Friday.  

Anyone who is not a UK or Irish resident, or British citizen, cannot enter the UK if they have been in India in the previous ten days.  

Confirming 103 cases of the India variant had now been detected, Hancock told the House of Commons: “The vast majority have links to international travel and have been picked up by our testing at the border.”

He added: “After studying the data, and on a precautionary basis, we’ve made the difficult but vital decision to add India to the red list.”  

There will be 40 countries on the red list as of Friday.  

Please always refer to the Government’s website for the most up to date information regarding the acute/red lists countries.
