Which countries could be added to the green list?

With scarce choices for holidaymakers, more countries on the green list could pave the way for trips abroad this summer.

There is no clear indication of which countries will or won’t make the cut, however, some areas are doing better than others in terms of Covid cases, vaccinations and response to variants.

Potential green list countries include

  • Malta
  • Finland
  • Grenada
  • The Cayman Islands
  • Fiji
  • The British Virgin Islands
  • Antigua and Barbuda
  • St Kitts and Nevis
  • Turks and Caicos Islands
  • Anguilla

Some have also argued for a return of Portugal to the green list.

Ambassador to Greece, Kate Smith, told a tourism seminar she expected Brits to be able to visit the country soon.

She said: “As soon as conditions allow, we expect to see British tourists return to Greece.”

And some EU country’s islands could also make the cut, including

  • Canary Islands
  • Rhodes
  • Kos
  • Zante
  • Corfu
  • Crete

However, for those wishing to jet off to mainland Spain it may be some time before these countries make it to the green list.

Data has shown Spain’s average infection rate has dropped slightly, and over the last seven days 75 infections per 100,000 people were reported.

However cases are at 14 percent of the peak, with 5,087 new infections on average each day.

Italy’s infection rate over the last seven days is even lower at 20 per 100,000 according to the latest data.

Cases in Italy are at five percent of the peak, and are falling with 1,777 new infections reported on average each day.

Portugal – added to the amber list on June 8 – has recorded 43 infections per 100,000 over the past seven days, with Reuters reporting cases are at five percent of the peak, and rising.

In Portugal, 641 new infections are reported on average each day.

However, travel bosses are eager for more European countries to be added to the green list after more than a year of travel uncertainty.

EasyJet boss John Lundgren said: “You have a number of countries in Europe that are now on the amber list that should go into the green list.”

And Spain’s tourism minister, Fernando Valdes, has said he hopes at least parts of the country would be added to the green list.
