As Britain makes the first tentative steps towards resuming international travel, the government is urging people to remain cautious, and not travel to amber or red list countries unless absolutely necessary.
It is very important for people to grasp what an amber list country is - it is not somewhere where you should be going on holiday.
If people do have to go to an amber list country - for essential reasons such as work, essential services, maintaining the flow of critical goods, or for compassionate reasons - then strict quarantine and testing will apply on their return.
