The rules have enraged the tourism and travel industry who have since written a letter to Ms Patel, asking the government to change the rules.
Travel bosses and hotel owners have said that the rules could potentially “deter UK visitors from travelling abroad” and could have a detrimental effect on already struggling industries like airlines and hotels.
