No new countries added to UK’s green travel list – and Portugal moved to amber

No further countries are being moved from the amber to green status in a review of the government’s travel traffic light system, and Portugal is being moved to the amber list – dashing hopes that the Spanish islands would be added to the no-quarantine list.

There were hopes some Greek and Spanish islands and Malta could have been added to the green list in the first review of the system since it came into play three weeks ago.

People arriving in the UK from amber list countries have to take two post-arrival tests on day two and day eight after arriving and self-isolate at home for 10 days, although they can reduce that time if they take an additional negative test on day five.
