ISLAMABAD: The United Kingdom has removed Pakistan from its red travel list, as the UK government announced its latest travel review on Friday.

British High Commissioner to Pakistan Christian Turner has announced the recent updates.

“Pleased to confirm Pakistan is off the red list. I know how difficult the last 5 months were for so many who rely on close links between Pakistan & UK,” he wrote on his official Twitter handle on Friday.

Turner said the UK will continue to work closely with Pakistan to ensure data sharing and safeguard public health in both countries. “No one is safe until everyone is safe.”

Pakistan remained on the red list for over five months. Thousands of Pakistani families had been waiting for the decision, which would save them hundreds of pounds per person.

The red list rules required them to quarantine at the designated hotels and take a coronavirus test on day 2 or day 8 of arrival.
