The international travel traffic light system is being simplified in England with a single red list, as part of an overhaul of the rules from 4 October.
Axar.az reports that Transport Secretary Grant Shapps also said eight countries would be taken off the red list from Wednesday.
It means people returning from places such as Turkey will no longer have to stay in hotel quarantine.
And PCR tests will no longer be required for fully vaccinated travellers returning to England.
Under the new testing regime, people who have had both jabs will not need to take a pre-departure test before leaving any country not on the red list.
Wales said it would follow England in removing Turkey, Pakistan, the Maldives, Egypt, Sri Lanka, Oman, Bangladesh and Kenya from the red list. It would "carefully consider" the proposed changes on testing but said they are "not without risk".
