UK's 'red list' – here are all the countries banned for travel

The addition of Bangladesh, Pakistan, Kenya and the Philippines brings the total number of countries on England’s Red List to 39.

Passengers arriving from or traveling through the four countries are excluded unless they are UK, Irish or UK residents.

Those exempt from the ban must be quarantined at a government-approved hotel for 10 days upon arrival.

The list now includes almost all of South America and large parts of Africa, three countries in the Middle East and the three newcomers in Asia.

No European countries are currently on the red list, although ministers have reportedly debated whether to add France as it is grappling with a third wave of coronavirus cases.

Nearly 5,000 patients are in intensive care in France, almost the highest level during the previous November surge in coronavirus.

Here are the countries currently on the red list:
