ITV News published this video item, entitled “New travel rules: Amber list scrapped and changes to Covid tests in major shake up | ITV News” – below is their description.

International travel is being made cheaper and easier for the vast majority of people in England, after the government announced an overhaul to the heavily criticised traffic light system.

The green list is set to become dozens of countries longer after Transport Secretary Grant Shapps confirmed reports that the amber list was being scrapped and the red list shortened.

Further changes mean fully vaccinated travellers will no longer need to pay for a pre-departure lateral flow test or a post-arrival PCR test when returning from countries not on the red list.

The changes to England’s testing rules will come into force from Monday, October 4, while scores of countries will be added to the green list on Wednesday September 22, at 4am.
