Amber list in full as Boris considers no return quarantine for fully vaccinated Brits

Double-jabbed holidaymakers could once again head off on summer holidays abroad this summer under fresh plans to open up travel. It is said that officials are drawing up proposals to allow Britons to visit amber list countries without the need for a quarantine period upon arrival back into the country.

Ambassador to Greece, Katie Smith, told a tourism seminar that she expected to see British holidaymakers to return as soon as they can.

Canary Islands, Rhodes, Kos, Zante, Corfu and Crete could also make the green list.

It comes after a decline in coronavirus cases in Greece, with 27.1 percent of the population fully vaccinated.

A government spokesperson said work has begun to “consider the role of vaccinations” for inbound travel following the success of the programme. 

They added: “As set out in the Global Travel Taskforce, we are working with industry for a safe return to international travel, guided by one overwhelming priority, public health.

“Decisions on our traffic light system are kept under constant review, and based on a range of health factors.

“Recognising the strong strategic rationale and success of the vaccine programme, we have commenced work to consider the role of vaccinations in shaping a different set of health and testing measures for inbound travel.”

It comes after a huge pressure has been put on the Government to restart international travel after uncertainty surrounding holidays has been ongoing for more than a year.

Those travelling to any country must take a COVID-19 test before going on holiday, which could cost anything from £45 and £200.
