Travel update - more countries added to UK's green list
The Balearic Islands, Madeira, Malta and a number of Caribbean islands are among the places being added to the UK’s green travel list from 4am on 30 June. People entering the UK from these places will not have to quarantine on arrival and the Government intends to allow quarantine-free travel from all amber list countries for those who have been fully vaccinated “later in the summer”.
All additions to the green list apart from Malta will also join the ‘green watchlist’, as will Israel and Jerusalem - indicating that these countries are at risk of moving from green to amber.
The full list of countries to be added to the red list includes Eritrea, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Mongolia, Tunisia and Uganda, and all measures will continue to be kept under review to protect public health. They present a high public health risk to the UK from known variants of concern (VOC), known high-risk variants under investigation (VUI) or as a result of very high in-country or territory infection rates of COVID-19.
All classification changes have been decided by ministers, informed by the latest data and analysis by the Joint Biosecurity Centre (JBC) and wider public health considerations, to help the public understand the risks to public health of travelling to different destinations. The measures announced are designed to give travellers and the travel sector more certainty and will be kept under review.
