The most popular European holiday destinations escaped plunging into the red in the latest review of travel restrictions by the UK countries. Travel lists, which determine the quarantine and testing requirements for people arriving in the UK, are updated every three weeks. Many popular tourist destinations such as Spain, France and Greece are on the amber list, which means returning travellers who are not fully vaccinated must self-isolate at home for 10 days, take one pre-departure test and two post-arrival test. Fully vaccinated travellers are exempt from quarantine, but must still take one pre-departure test and one post-arrival test.
