The UK Government has finally revealed its updated green list, with the Balearics, Malta, Madeira and several Caribbean islands among holiday destinations that Brits can now visit without having to quarantine on return.

The new additions will go green from 4am next Wednesday, 30 June.

Bermuda, in the Atlantic, is also on the list, as are two UK territories and the Pitcairn Islands.

In the Caribbean, the islands of Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat and Turks and Caicos have all gone green.

However, all but Malta have also been put on a ‘green watch list’, meaning the Government is keeping a close watch on the destinations and they could move to amber. Israel, which is already green-listed, has also been added to the green watch list, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said.

Tunisia and Dominican Republic have been relegated to the red list, also from 4am on 30 June , Eritrea, Haiti, Kuwait, Mongolia and Uganda have also gone red.

The list has not come as much of a surprise, after the Northern Ireland Government released the same list over an hour before Mr Shapps tweeted the news.

Since the tweet, the Department for Transport has confirmed the updated list.

It added that, later in the summer, double vaccinated travellers, started with UK residents, who are arriving from amber countries will not have to quarantine.

“UK Government, in response to the Global Travel Taskforce recommendation on checkpoint review, has announced plans to reopen international travel, including plans to remove the self-isolation period for amber list countries for those who are fully vaccinated, with full details set out next month,” the DfT said.
