As of 4am this morning seven new locations were added to the Government’s green list for travel.
People travelling to the UK from Canada and Denmark will no longer need to isolate as the latest Covid rules came into force.
Finland, Switzerland, the Azores, Liechtenstein and Lithuania are also on the green list.
For British travellers who have been double jabbed, there will effectively be no difference as they already didn’t need to self-isolate on return.
Montenegro and Thailand have moved from amber to red, meaning Brits visiting will need to quarantine for 10 days in a hotel on their return – at a cost of £2,285 per adult.
UK Covid travel rules
- Countries are placed on different coloured lists depending on the Covid situation in each nation
- Green list countries are said to carry the lowest risk for travellers – and so isolation is not required, though testing pre-arrival and on day two is needed
- Most countries – including the UK’s most popular holiday destinations – are on the amber list
- Amber list arrivals do not need to isolate if they are fully vaccinated or under-18 – but testing is required pre-arrival and on day two after landing
- Those who have yet to have both jabs will need to isolate and take additional Covid tests
- Only British nationals can enter the UK directly from a red list country and they must pay to quarantine in special hotels and be tested
