Britain has made a series of changes to its international travel rules making it easier from people from some European countries as well as India, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates to enter England.
The changes will take effect on Sunday.
The BBC's Caroline Davies reports.
France will move back onto the list of amber countries from which fully vaccinated travelers do not have to quarantine.
Seven countries, including Austria and Germany, are moved onto the green list, meaning passengers do not need to isolate on return even if they are unvaccinated.
India is one of four countries being removed from the red list so arrivals will no longer have to stay at a quarantine hotel.
Spain remains on the amber list but people returning from there are now advised to take a PCR test rather than a cheaper lateral flow test.
South Korea remains on the U.K.'s amber list, requiring travelers from the country to take a COVID-19 test three days ahead of their flight and quarantine for 10 days upon arrival.
