Which countries are on the green list?
All of the countries on the green list are:
- New Zealand
- Falkland Islands
- Faroe Islands
- South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands
- St Helena, Tristan de Cunha, Ascension Island
Portugal has been removed from the green list, just weeks after it was added.
Despite hopes that Malta could be added, the government has not put any more countries on the green list.
Assessments are based on a range of factors, including the proportion of a population that has been vaccinated, rates of infection, emerging new variants, and access to reliable scientific data and genomic sequencing.
What are the green list travel rules?
Anyone coming back to Britain from a green list destination will need to have two Covid tests.
This includes a pre-arrival Covid test, and also a test on day two of returning to the UK.
Quarantine or additional testing is not needed upon return, unless the post-arrival test is positive.
Brits should still check the entry requirements of green list countries as the agreement for quarantine-free restrictions is not reciprocal.
Amber countries require a mandatory 10-day quarantine at home as well as a Covid test on day two and eight.
Red countries will have to isolate for 10-days at a quarantine hotel, costing £1,750 per person.
Here is the full list of countries on the amber list and red list right now.
The next travel update is expected to take place in three weeks – on June 21.
But there is no guarantee more countries will be added to the list – and there is every chance some may be taken off.
