Approx 5pm today the 'green list' should be announced of where holidaymakers can book an overseas break without having to isolate on their return home.

Expect the likes of Spain, Portugal and France to be on this but time will tell!

Will update as soon as a confirmed list is announced




  • Green countries


Travellers to countries on the green list will need to:


Take a private Covid test in their holiday destination, before returning - this can be a lateral flow test or a PCR test

Fill in a passenger locator form online before leaving their destination

Take a private PCR test on or before day two of their arrival in England

No need to quarantine on return, or take additional tests, unless the post-arrival test is positive

The cost of a private PCR test varies between suppliers, but the transport secretary said he hoped prices could come down to less than £50 per person. Tui Group is offering test packages for between £20 and £90.

There will be a "green watch list", to give people advance notice of countries about to move to amber or red.
