Foreign holidays are still off the cards to many popular tourist hotspots this summer after no new destinations were added to the travel green list.
The UK government’s latest travel update saw Portugal moved from the green to amber list amid concerns about rising Covid-19 cases, while destinations including the Spanish and Greek Islands, and Malta failed to be awarded green status. As such, there are currently 11 locations which UK holidaymakers can visit without facing quarantine restrictions on their return. Listed are all of the destinations on the green list and their entry requirements for tourists.
Entry to Australia is currently closed to most arrivals. Travellers who have been in New Zealand for 14 days or more can travel by air and will not require an exemption. To enter Australia you must hold a valid visa. Those who meet exemption criteria, or have a compelling reason to enter, can apply to Australian authorities for an exemption. Photo: Shutterstock
Entry to Brunei is severely restricted. Anyone seeking to enter or exit must apply for a permit from the Prime Minister’s Office at least eight days before the date of travel. Travellers need to provide a negative Covid-19 PCR test on arrival, obtained within 72 hours of travel. An exit travel ban is also in place, including for permanent residents and expatriate workers.

Current visitor restrictions mean tourists are not permitted to enter the Falkland Islands, including via cruise ships. Any entrants are expected to self-isolate for 14 days. Photo: Shutterstock
4. Faroe Islands
All UK resident travellers must have a special worthy purpose to enter the Faroe Islands, in line with the Danish Government’s stricter requirements. Entrants will be tested for Covid-19 on arrival, plus a follow up test on day six. Travellers must self-isolate until receiving the results of the follow up test. Photo: Shutterstock
