It is thought the Government could introduce a traffic light system, although this was not confirmed today.
This could reportedly take into consideration factors such as vaccination rates, numbers of infections and the ability to identify variants in different countries.
Taking this information into consideration, countries will be classed as “red”, “amber” or “green”, according to reports.
Each traffic light colour will come with different rules for travellers.
Those arriving from countries branded “green” may not be required to isolate, however tests will still be required.
Those coming from “amber” or “red” countries could face restrictions such as isolating.
Travellers from “amber” countries will need to isolate for 10 days, or they can pay for a test on day five.
