So this means that for unvaccinated passengers, the rules are actually getting stricter and the green list has (for their purposes) been eliminated.England updates: From 4 October the amber and green lists will be abolished, leaving just the red list and the “everything else”.
Fully vaccinated passengers will no longer need to take a pre-departure test before their trips back to England, and from later in the month can use a (paid for) lateral flow test for their day 2 test rather than a PCR.
However, unvaccinated passengers will still need pre-departure tests, will have to quarantine and will need to take day 2 and 8 PCR tests when arriving from outside the common travel area.
Turkey, the Maldives, and Pakistan will move from red to amber from Wednesday.
