For 32, British visits just got easier

By | Category: Travel destinations

Late yesterday, the FCDO issued travel advisories for thirty-two destinations saying that we could visit them again.

None of the thirty-two were on the red list but, prior to yesterday, there were travel advisories telling us not to visit meaning that any travel insurance was probably going to be invalid.

Some of the destinations are either key winter sun destinations like Malaysia or where the are strong family links like Bangladesh and Ghana.

Others like Algeria and Senegal are psooible holiday hotspots in the future as countries gear themselves up to attract British visitors.

That has now altered and the full list is

The full list of destinations is:
Algeria
American Samoa
Armenia
Bangladesh
Belarus
Benin
Comoros
Congo
Djibouti
Equatorial Guinea
Fiji
French Polynesia (Austral, Gambier, Marquesas, Society and the Tuamotu islands)
Gambia
Ghana
Guinea
Kazakhstan
Kiribati
Kosovo
Liberia
Madagascar
Malaysia
Marshall Islands
Micronesia
Nauru
Niue
Sao Tome and Principe
Senegal
Solomon Islands
Togo
Tokelau
Tuvalu
Vanuatu

Many of the destinations are in the south Pacific and few Britons visit them in comparison to more popular destinations such as Australia and New Zealand. Nonetheless, that they are now open means there are fewer places in the world to which we cannot travel.

That situation is expected to change today when the red list is reduced meaning we won’t have to stay in government nominated hotels and pay the huge sums that are demanded.

News on that announcement tomorrow
