Millions of Britons to learn if they can travel after December 2


Millions of Britons will today find out whether they will be able to travel from next week under the renewed three-tier system of local restrictions, which the Prime Minister is due to announce later today.

The current ban on foreign travel is set to end on December 2, when the second national lockdown also ends – Britons will be allowed to fly abroad provided they abide by quarantine rules and the travel corridor system.

But not everybody will have the same freedoms under the tough new rules, which are expected to stay in place until spring next year.

Those living under Tier 3 – the highest level of alert – will be advised not to travel outside their areas except for work, education and other exceptional circumstances, while hotels, B&Bs and campsites in those areas be required to close.

Meanwhile, people living in Tiers 1 and 2 will also be advised against travelling to top-tier areas.

The Transport Secretary, Grant Shapps, is also due to give his weekly travel corridors update later today, with South Africa, Kenya and Mexico all favourites for the quarantine-free list.

Earlier this week, Mr Shapps also announced that a new testing programme to reduce quarantine time from 14 days to five will be rolled out from December 15 – travellers will be able to take a single test on the fifth day, with a negative result confirming their release from self-isolation.
