Canada, Denmark, Finland, Lithuania, Switzerland and Liechtenstein have been added to the U.K. government’s coveted green list for quarantine-free travel for all travellers returning to England from 4 a.m. on 30 August 2021.
The Azores islands of Portugal have also been added to the green list, and no destinations have been removed from the green list at this review.
Fully vaccinated travellers no longer have to quarantine on return from amber list countries, meaning the green list is less important for people who are fully vaccinated, as amber countries are now essentially green.
Montenegro and Thailand have been added to the travel ban red list, meaning any arrivals into the United Kingdom from these destinations must undergo a mandatory hotel quarantine at the traveller’s expense.
Travellers hoping Turkey would be moved from the red list to the amber list will once again be disappointed, as the popular summer tourist destination remains on the red list until at least the next review in three weeks time. The Maldives also remains on the red list.
Some Caribbean destinations, including Jamaica and St. Lucia, were rumoured to moving from the amber list to the red list but have escaped the designation on this update.
