Sunseekers looking to holiday abroad this year are forced to stay abreast of the government’s travel traffic light system, as well as the rules for each list around testing and quarantine.
The government’s latest travel review has reshuffled the international travel lists and culled the ‘amber-plus’ list.
The changes saw France moved to the regular amber list as well as Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Slovakia, Latvia, Romania and Norway among those added to the quarantine-free green list.
India was among four countries removed from the high-risk red list, alongside Bahrain, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.
The changes, which came into effect on August 8, meant travellers arriving from these countries will no longer be required to spend 11 nights at a quarantine hotel.
Meanwhile, although Spain avoided red status, the government is now urging travellers to take a PCR test before they fly home from the country.
Reviews typically take place every three weeks, with announcements often made on a Thursday.
The last update came on Thursday, August 5, therefore the next announcement is likely to come on August 26.
