The list is as follows: Albania, American Samoa, Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Australia, Benin, Belize, the British Virgin Islands, Brunei, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cayman Islands, Chad, China, Cote d’Ivoire, Eswatini, Falkland Islands, French Polynesia, Gambia, Ghana, Greenland, Grenada, Hong Kong, Iceland, Isle of Man, Israel, Laos, Liberia, Malawi, Malta, Marshall Islands, Mauritius, Micronesia, Montserrat, Morocco, Mozambique, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Niger, Nigeria, Northern Mariana Islands, Palau, Rwanda, Saba, Saint Barthelemy, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Pierre and Miquelon, Sierra Leone, Senegal, Singapore, Sint Eustatius, South Korea, Taiwan, Togo, Turks and Caicos Islands (UK), Vietnam and Zimbabwe.
The multi-agency body earlier said that persons who were vaccinated abroad and remained exclusively within these states 14 days before their arrival may undergo a shorter quarantine period of seven days in an accredited quarantine facility starting this month.
They will be watched for symptoms and are required to self-monitor for seven more days. On the fifth day of quarantine, they will be asked to undergo RT-PCR testing.
