The Lists for Travel

May 19, 2021.

Foreign holidays are allowed once again, but taking a trip is still far from straightforward.

Travellers need to know where their destination sits in a traffic light system and whether the country is accepting visitors. International travel is allowed for people who live in England, Scotland and Wales.

However, even if travel is possible, residents of Wales are being advised to go abroad only for "essential" reasons in 2021. Northern Ireland is yet to announce a relaxation of international travel rules.

A traffic light system will divide destinations into three categories - green, amber and red.

Visiting green countries involves the fewest rules and there's no quarantine when travellers return. The ranking of countries depends partly on the number of Covid-19 cases and the success of their vaccine rollout.

The Green List

The 12 countries and territories on the green list are:

  • Portugal

  • Israel

  • Singapore

  • Australia

  • New Zealand
