Three Countries That Will Be On The Green List From May 17th!

We've all been waiting for good news and things are looking up as the green list will soon be announced leading up to the relaxing on the ban of travel. I've narrowed it down to the three countries that are most likely to be welcoming U.K. travellers this summer. Remember even though we have been given the go ahead those countries may not be accepting U.K. travellers, so make sure to do your research.

This is based on vaccination rates in each individual country. From May 17th these countries look likely to be added to the green list. Being on the green list means on return from a country, you will need to take pre-departure test and PCR test but you will not need to quarantine on arrival back in the U.K.

The full list of green list countries are:

5. Brunei

All details subject to change due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation.
