The Health Protection (Coronavirus, International Travel) (England) Regulations 2020 are amended from 4am on 14 November 2020, as follows:

Greece (other than the Greek islands of Corfu, Crete, Kos, Rhodes and Zakynthos) and the Sovereign Base Areas of Akrotiri and Dhekelia in Cyprus are removed from the list of exempt countries and territories in Schedule A1, from which passengers arriving in England are not required to self-isolate.

Bahrain, Cambodia, Chile, Iceland, Laos, Qatar, Turks and Caicos Islands and United Arab Emirates are added to the list and are now exempt from the self-isolation requirements.

Denmark was previously removed from the list of exempt countries and territories. Exemptions from the requirement to self-isolate for passengers who had been in or transited through Denmark during the 14 days preceding their arrival in England were removed, and the self-isolation requirement was extended to persons residing with such passengers.

Limited exemptions from the requirement to self-isolate, have now been introduced, for persons taking part in, or directly supporting, two specified international sporting events (the men’s international football match between Denmark and Iceland taking place on Sunday 15 November 2020 at the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen, and the men’s international football match between England and Iceland taking place on Wednesday 18 November 2020 at Wembley Stadium in London).
