Green list info

Since 17 May there has been a ‘green list’ of countries and territories.

This will be reviewed every 3 weeks, and we hope to see many more destinations soon, despite a disappointing first review!

These destinations will also have their own entry requirements which will evolve in time – please check for more info on on the gov.uk website depending on where you’re thinking of going.
