Eluned Morgan MS, Minister for Health and Social Services
We are taking action to move Nigeria onto the red list for travel from 0400 Monday 6th December following the identification of a new coronavirus variant, which may be capable of evading the protection provided by vaccines.
Travellers from red list countries will not be permitted to enter Wales but must enter through a port of entry in England and go into a managed quarantine facility for 10 days. Whilst they are in quarantine they must also take post-arrival PCR tests on day 2 and day 8.
We are also reintroducing a 48-hour Pre Departure Test requirement for all travellers. This means that travellers will need to have a negative PCR or LFD test as close as possible to their departure time before they can travel.
Similar action is being taken across the UK.
