Employers to note quarantine for staff taking holidays abroad

Holiday Travel Corridors?

 

The Government has provided exemption rules for certain holiday destinations, therefore it is imperative to refer to the ‘travel corridors’ so you can establish if it’s mandatory to undertake self-isolation, or family-isolation for that matter upon arrival.

I have listed them below for you:-
