Nepal was removed from the red list at 4am on Monday 11 October and the FCDO no longer advises against all but essential travel to Nepal, based on the current assessment of COVID-19 risks.

The Joint Biosecurity Centre (JBC) produce risk assessments of countries and territories for the red list for international travel. Decisions on red list assignment and associated border measures are taken by Ministers, who take into account the JBC risk assessments, alongside wider public health factors.
