All passengers, except those on a small list of exemptions, will still be required to provide contact information on arrival into the UK.
The full list of those countries exempt is due to be published on Friday.
The Department of Transport said: “This will mean that holidaymakers travelling to and from certain destinations will not need to self-isolate on either leg of their journey.”
It added that the list of exempt countries will be “kept under constant review, so that if the health risks increase, self-isolation measures can be re-introduced to help stop the spread of the disease into England.”
