Review travel advice and travel corridor list for African countries

Petition Details

The Government should review its travel corridor list and advice for travel to African countries, in line with the same metrics used for the rest of the world. If metrics of cases per 100k and testing levels were used, this could enable travel to Eastern and Southern Africa, to start with.

Additional Information

1. Humanitarian: The African continent relies heavily on international travel for £130bn income and 25m jobs. Each African travel job typically supports 8-10 dependents, helping to support up to 250m people across Africa.
2. Wildlife: More eyes on the ground in Africa should reduce poaching or rhino, elephant and pangolin and subsistence killing of animals for bush meat.
3. UK Jobs: Protect UK jobs across tour operators, travel agents, tourist boards, airlines, marketing and PR companies.
