Amber list countries: All of the holiday destinations where passengers face quarantine

6 mins read


SUN-SEEKERS will finally be allowed to jet on holiday abroad from May 17, but there are very few places that will be on the green list.

Most countries are still stuck in ‘amber’ which means people will have to quarantine at home when they return, to make sure they are not spreading Covid.

The amber list means people must fill out a passenger locator form, take a Covid-19 tests before they fly back, and book and pay for tests on day two and eight of their quarantine period.

If their tests are all negative, they can be released from quarantine.

Countries on the amber list could move to red, or down to green.

If there’s a sudden change, this may be without any warning at all.
