List of safe countries does not include Portugal or United States
The government has revealed the list of countries that Britons can travel to and not self isolate on their return.
The change came into effect on July 10, but the safe list – also known as the travel corridors list – is now reviewed weekly.
Changes occur frequently. Estonia, Latvia, Slovakia, Slovenia, and St Vincent and the Grenadines were added to the list on July 24, but Spain, Luxembourg, Belgium, Andorra and the Bahamas were later removed. Then, France, Malta, Netherlands, Monaco, Turks and Caicos, and Aruba were removed from August 15.
Austria, Croatia and Trinidad & Tobago were removed on August 22, but Portugal was added (and later removed). The Greek islands of Lesvos, Tinos, Serifos, Mykonos, Crete, Santorini and Zakynthos have also been removed – marking the first time that the government has employed regionalised measures. The likes of Turkey, Denmark, and Slovenia have since been removed. Always check the Department for Transport website before travelling.
