No countries being added to UK green list
Holidaymakers hoping to jet off to Spain and Greece are face a blow as the Government is set to add NO new countries to the quarantine-free travel green list – and Portugal could be downgraded to amber.
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps will give an update this afternoon on the reviewed green, amber and red lists for travel to the UK.
Both Spain and Greece are on then amber list currently, which means anybody travelling to the UK from them – including returning holidaymakers – must quarantine at home for 10 days when they land in the UK.
There was speculation that travel corridors could be created with the Spanish and Greek island territories, while the mainland countries remain on the amber list, but insiders now do not expect Mr Shapps to approve travel to the likes of Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza, Kos, Create and Skiathos for at least three weeks.
Instead, Mr Shapps will add some amber countries to the no-travel red list, which could force people holidaying in them to have to fork out £1,750 to quarantine in a hotel when they return.
And it is not known if Portugal would keep its place on the green list, but there is speculation it could be downgraded to amber.
