Pakistan, Kenya, Bangladesh, and the Philippines to be added to England’s travel ‘red list’ from 9 April 2021.
International visitors who have left or transited through those nations in the previous 10 days will be barred from entering.
The move, which will take effect from 4am on Friday, 9 April, is in response to concerns about new variants of COVID-19, like those first detected in South Africa and Brazil.
British and Irish citizens and those with residence rights in the UK will be allowed to enter but will have to arrive at a designated port and then pay to stay in a government-approved quarantine hotel for 10 days.
The additions mean a total of 39 countries are now on the “red list”. They are:
• Cape Verde
• Democratic Republic of the Congo
• French Guiana
• The Philippines
• South Africa
• United Arab Emirates
This will have a heavy impact on cricketers travelling to the UK shortly for their respective seasons.
We are in a position to offer advice to clubs, and players, so feel free to get in touch to discuss options.
