CDC Updates Travel Advisories, UK Remains Level 3

US authorities have altered their travel advisory system, with the UK at Level 3, recommending Americans “reconsider travel” to the country

Published on August 7, 2020

Airport Board Question

As of today, August 7, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) has withdrawn its Global Level 4 Health Advisory for COVID-19, and instead introduced country specific advisories. The UK is at Level 3, with the CDC recommending Americans "Reconsider travel to the United Kingdom due to COVID-19 and exercise increased caution due to terrorism."

Although the CDC's advisory notice has changed, the UK continues to require international arrivals from the US to self-quarantine for 14 days on arrival, and travel to the US from the UK continues to be only permitted to US Citizens, Green Card holders and other eligible individuals.

There has been discussion in the UK of a relaxation to the rules relating to Transatlantic travel. The Financial Times recently reported that UK officials are urging "ministers to relax US travel restrictions", with the particular aim of making Transatlantic business smoother. However, the Government has reportedly been reluctant to ease rules, and so for the time being, travel regulations between the UK and US continue to require particular attention for those who are planning to fly.
