The Caribbean island of Aruba has been added to the UK’s travel corridors list.

Otherwise no mainstream travel destinations were added, with arrivals from Bhutan, Timor-Leste and Mongolia plus the Pacific islands of Samoa, Kiribati, Micronesia, Tonga, Vanuatu, and the Solomon Islands no longer required to quarantine.

Eastern European destinations Estonia and Latvia have been removed from the list, meaning quarantine measures are now in place.

The changes, announced by transport secretary Grant Shapps on Twitter, come into force at 4am on Saturday November 28.

Denmark remains off the travel corridor list, but Shapps confirmed the total travel ban imposed on the country as a result of a different strain of Covid found there has now been removed.
