(CNN) — England has unlocked travel to and from 59 countries by lifting quarantine requirements, but visitors from the United States will still be subject to restrictions, the UK government said Friday.
Officials have revealed a new “travel corridor” list, with travelers from 59 nations — including France, Germany, Italy and Spain — and 14 British Overseas Territories no longer having to self-isolate for 14 days on arrival.
The list, which comes into effect on July 10, will open foreign travel to English holidaymakers after four months of lockdown, just in time for the peak travel period, provided there are no restrictions in place at the destinations.
“The government is satisfied that it is now safe to ease these measures in England and has introduced travel corridors for some countries and territories,” the UK’s Department for Transport said Friday in a statement.
“This applies to all travel to England, by train, ferry, coach, air or any other route,” the statement added.
