UK Green List: Countries that may be added to the green travel list soon

With the vaccination programme progressing well and summer fast approaching, many are wondering if they’ll be able to get away for a summer holiday.

Hospitality, entertainment venues and non-essential retail are open, with leisure travel permitted within the UK.

But if you’re looking to get away abroad, things can be a little more complicated.

Each potential overseas destination is assigned one of three classifications: red, amber or green.

If a country is on the green list, this means that people can travel there from England, and when they return they will not need to quarantine.

Amber countries require a 10-day home quarantine with PCR testing on days two and eight.

Red countries require quarantine in a government-approved hotel at a cost of £1,750.

The Government says people should not be travelling to amber or red list countries except for reasons such as a death in the family.

The tier classifications are reviewed regularly, with the next review expected to take place in the next few days.

Countries could move up or down, depending on local case rates and vaccinations.
