What countries will be on the ‘green’ list for foreign travel?

09/04/2021

The US, Israel and the Caribbean are among the green lightareas where people could return to the UK without needing to self-isolate.

Many people are desperate to find out what countries will be placed on the Government’s “green” list for travellers.

A new traffic light system will be used to determine testing and quarantine requirements for UK arrivals once overseas leisure travel is permitted.

Countries will be put on either the “green”, “amber” or “red” list based on coronavirus risks.

Initial lists will be published early next month.

Assessments will be based on a range of factors, including the proportion of a country’s population which has been vaccinated, rates of infection, emerging new variants and the country’s access to reliable scientific data and genomic sequencing.

Using that criteria, here are 10 destinations that could be added to the “green” list:

– Gibraltar;

– Israel;

– Malta;

– Morocco;

– Portugal;

– Singapore;

– South Korea;

– The Caribbean;

– United Arab Emirates;

– USA.

The “red list” is already in operation.

It currently has 39 destinations on it, including all of South America and southern Africa.

Bangladesh, Kenya, Pakistan and the Philippines were added on Friday.
