Quarantine for travellers returning from Belgium, Andorra and Bahamas

The UK has added more countries to the 'no-go' list, meaning that the foreign office (FCO) is now advising against non-essential travel to these destinations and that any people entering the UK from these places will have to quarantine for 14 days.

This comes after data from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) has shown that Coronavirus cases in Belgium are now three times higher than in the UK. Belgium, Andorra and the Bahamas now join other countries like Spain and Luxembourg which were added to the 'no-go' list in late July.

This will have implications for many travellers but particularly on insurance policies. Anyone who visits a destination which the FCO advises against will almost certainly have their travel insurance policies invalidated
