As one of the most badly impacted countries from the Covid 19 pandemic, it is understandable that many countries are reluctant to allow UK visitors into their countries. North America is currently off limits to all Brits. So instead of a holiday to Florida, below is a list of the long haul destinations that you can visit in the coming weeks. We expect more countries to be added to the list over the next 2 months, and this article will be updated to reflect the changing situation.
Ecuador: International flights to and from Ecuador have resumed. The restriction on international arrivals has been lifted. Upon arrival, passengers will be required to sign a declaration form with their itinerary and local contact details. They must also present a negative Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test for COVID-19, taken up to seven days prior to departure. If those tests aren’t available in your country, you need to agree to have a test at the airport in Ecuador. All passengers will have to self-isolate for 14 days.
Bangladesh: Commercial passenger flights from the UK and Qatar are permitted to land in Bangladesh. On arrival, foreigners need proof of a medical certificate issued within 72 hours of travel that shows a negative test result. Passengers from the UK will need to self-isolate for 14 days. Passengers from the UK will also need to complete a Health Declaration Form and Passenger Locator Form, provided on the flight.
Cambodia: Travellers from all countries can now enter Cambodia, but must have a certificate to prove they are COVID-19 free, have proof of insurance that includes a minimum of US$50,000 for medical cover and have a visa before arrival. Cambodia have introduced a $3000 deposit for the COVID-19 service. Fees will be deducted for the test, an overnight stay in a waiting centre, meals at the waiting centre. and the remainder will be paid back. If one passenger tests positive, everyone who was on the same flight as them will be quarantined for 14 days.

You will have to fill in this form, and if approved you will be given a reference number which will allow you to book a flight. Be aware that strict measures are still in place at the border.
