Government Response

Tuesday 11th May 2021

The Government has made it consistently clear it will take decisive action, if necessary, to contain the virus and Pakistan has been added to the “Red List” to protect public health.


The Government recognise the impact that the decision to place Pakistan on the red list will have on individuals. However, it is right that the Government does all it can to reduce the risk of new strains of COVID-19 being imported into the UK.

The decision was taken to protect against new variants of COVID-19 at a critical time for the vaccine programme. The addition of Pakistan to the red list was based on data alongside a consideration of the recommendations of the Joint Biosecurity Centre (JBC). With over 30 million vaccinations delivered in the UK so far, the additional restrictions will help to reduce the risk of new variants entering the country.

We offer deferred payment plans and hardship support for people who cannot afford to pay for the cost of this managed quarantine and testing up front. In some circumstances this may be available to those who are not in receipt of income related benefits.

The Pakistani community makes a huge contribution to British society and plays an important role in our relations with Pakistan. The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) regularly engages on issues with the Pakistani community including any changes to our policy on travel restrictions during this pandemic.
