United Kingdom lifts travel restrictions to Cuba due to Covid-19
London, Jul 24 (Prensa Latina) The United Kingdom removed Cuba from the list of countries it advises against traveling to unless strictly necessary, after evaluating the risks of Covid-19 in Cuba.
The British government reported that as of July 24th Cuba is exempt from the Foreign Ministry's notice against non-essential international travel.
The Foreign Office (Ministry of Foreign Affairs) explained that the decision was made after evaluating the current situation of Covid-19 in Cuba.
UK Ambassador to Havana Antony Stokes tweeted saying that the lifting of the restriction 'reflects the Cuban response to the pandemic,' and said he expects British tourists to enjoy the warm Cuban hospitality when flights are safely resumed.
Cuba is not currently included in the list of nations whose travelers are not required to observe a 14-day quarantine upon entering the United Kingdom.
The British government added Estonia, Latvia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines to the list of 80 countries and overseas territories in an update published this Friday, but that does not include any country in Latin America, the United States or Canada.
