Which countries are open to travel for United Kingdom passport holders?

 

[Note: The data is up to date as of April 2022 for United Kingdom passport holders departing from the United Kingdom.]

Since 2020, the world has been facing many travel restrictions. The pandemic has taken over the world and it doesn’t seem to go away any time soon. The travel industry is among the most affected industries in the world. With all the flight operations resuming and international borders opening for different countries, there are still a lot of changes according to the country. Every country has its restrictions and requirements for immigrating international travelers according to its situation with the COVID-19 cases.

If these requirements are ignored by the passengers, they will have to face the consequences of interruption in travel or even cancellations. In this article, you will find which countries are open, which require a test or quarantine, and more. We have accumulated the list in two different categories: one if you’re fully vaccinated and the other if you’re not vaccinated, as it is one of the major requirements for most countries.
