When is the next UK travel list review?

The summer holidays are nearly over, but there’s still just enough time to squeeze in a trip away before the schools go back.

However, the UK’s travel lists are due to be updated shortly, meaning some of our most loved destinations could soon be off limits.

On the flip side, other places could become easier to visit.

The 16 countries on the green watchlist are at risk of moving to amber, for example.

That means it could soon be more difficult to return from Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda, Barbados, Bermuda, British Antarctic Territory, British Indian Ocean Territory, Cayman Islands, Croatia, Dominica, Grenada, Israel, Madeira, Montserrat, Pitcairn Islands, Taiwan, and the Turks and Caicos Islands.

When is the next travel list review?

The UK’s travel lists are set to be reviewed and updated on Thursday, August 26, though the announcement will likely emerge on the evening of Wednesday, August 25. The changes are then likely to take effect from Monday, August 30, though that could change due to the bank holiday.

What could change at the next update?

Turkey is one country which seems to keep getting mentioned as a potential change. It is currently on the red list, but it could be moved to the amber list.

Paul Charles, founder of the PC Agency travel consultancy, told the Times: “Turkey very much deserves to be on the amber list as it has some of the best Covid safety policies in place, especially in hotels and other tourist areas and has worked hard to reduce its infection rates.

“Many agree it feels safer there than it does in the UK.”

The agency’s analysis has previously identified Poland, Canada, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Czech Republic, and Lithuania as countries that could go from amber to green.
