Green list countries you can travel to from the UK this half term

Because you deserve a holiday

Grace Lindsay

We don't know about you, but when it comes to booking a holiday, we are finding all the changing travels rules and restrictions very confusing.

Therefore, we have decided to put together a super easy guide on what countries are on the green list and where you can travel to from the UK this half term, so that you can treat your family to the holiday that they deserve.

Do I have to quarantine while travelling to a green list country if I haven’t been fully vaccinated?

Each country has its own rules for arriving holidaymakers, so we recommend checking what they are before planning your trip, as even if a country is on the green list they may not be accepting UK travellers. However, when returning back to the UK, you will have to take a negative COVID-19 test up to three days before departure, and also book a test for day two after you return. A passenger locator form will also need to be completed.

You will only need to isolate in the UK if your COVID-19 test comes back positive, if you develop symptoms or if you get notified by the NHS Track and Trace app that you have been in contact with someone else who has tested positive for COVID-19.

Which countries are most likely to be added to the green list?

Although nothing has been confirmed yet, an announcement is expected to come later this week about which countries may be moving to the green list. It is rumoured that Turkey and the Maldives may move, but we recommend checking the gov.uk website for the latest updates.
