The Green List

Each destination is now on either the 'green', 'amber' or 'red' list as part of the government's traffic light system, depending on that country's number of cases and their individual vaccine programme.

What do the different traffic lights mean?

Green: You can travel to these destinations as long as the FCDO advise permits UK residents to travel, and no isolation is needed on return to the UK! Pre-departure and post-arrival tests will still be required at the cost of the traveller.

Amber: Subject to the FCDO advice, you are able to travel to these countries, with a pre-departure test and two PCR tests still required at the cost of the traveller.
From 19 July, if you have received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, you will no longer be required to quarantine on return to the UK. Travellers under 18 years old will also be exempt from quarantine.
All other returning travellers will require a 10-day quarantine at home on return to the UK, taking a PCR test on both day 2 and 8. Under the Test to Release scheme, you can arrange a private COVID-19 test on day 5. If the result is negative (and the result of your day 2 test was negative or inconclusive), you can end your quarantine.

Red: These are countries that are strongly advised against visiting, from which returning travellers must pay for a 10-day quarantine in a hotel, as well as a pre-departure test and two PCR tests.
