Breaking News ! The Government has given a clue as to which holiday hotspots could be on its 'green list' when that is released next week. The UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) has been issuing travel advice to different countries throughout the pandemic. Its latest updates travellers to some countries do not face a coronavirus risk that is "unacceptably high". Wales Online reports the department is not advising against non-essential travel to Portugal (excluding the Azores), Spain’s Canary Islands or the Greek islands of Rhodes, Kos, Zante, Corfu and Crete. However, it is still advising against travel to Spain's Balearic Islands like Menorca, Majorca, Ibiza and Formentera, despite their Covid cases falling. The ban on foreign holidays is expected to be lifted for people in England from Monday, May 17, as part of the government's coronavirus road map.

A risk-based traffic-light system is set to come in, with different rules for people depending on where they're going. People going to a 'green' location will not have to quarantine upon their return, while those coming back from 'amber' areas must self-isolate for at least five days. Anyone returning from a red-list country, like India, will face a 10-night stay at a quarantine hotel at a cost of £1,750 for solo travellers. The assessments are based on a range of factors, including the number of people vaccinated, the infection rates, emerging new variants, and the country's access to reliable scientific data and genomic sequencing. The government has been criticised for providing conflicting travel advice, but the changes to the travel advice gives an indication of the view of the risk to people going on holiday.
