International Travel
Countries with which can be and can not be visited are now separated into 3 catergories. All countries included in the traffic light system are based on a range of COVID-19 health metrics, infection rates and vaccination numbers. Variants of COVID-19 will also be factored into the traffic light system.

Every country has a different travel policy in place, and therefore it will depend on what their policy is on international travel. It is worth noting that some countries may be on the England list, but the country may ban international travel arriving and may have additional testing and quarantine requirements.

If conditions change in a country or territory, it can be moved from the green list to the amber or red list. If there is a sudden change in conditions, a country or territory may be moved between lists without warning.

If you have also been in or through a country or territory on the red list in the 10 days before you arrive in England, you must follow the red list rules.

If you have also been in or through a country or territory on the amber list in the 10 days before you arrive in England, and have not visited a country on the red list, you must follow the amber list rules.

If conditions change in a country or territory, it can be moved from the green list to the amber or red list. If there is a sudden change in conditions, a country or territory may be moved between lists without warning.

Proof Of Vaccination For Travel
“The surgery is unable to issue a letter or certificate confirming your vaccination status for overseas travel. Please see Government guidance for further information. Proof of your vaccination status is visible within the NHSapp, which is available for Apple and Android devices.

Alternatively, you can call the NHS Covid-19 helpline on 119 and ask for a letter to be posted to you. This must be at least five days after you have completed your course of the vaccine, the letter may to take up to seven days to reach you.

Please check Foreign Office and local travel advice for specific details of whether proof of vaccination status is accepted at your destination. The majority of countries, including the UK, still require arrivals to participate in a Covid-19 testing, isolation and/or quarantine regime, regardless of their vaccination status.”
