A guide to destinations that UK tourists can now visit, in light of the government’s updated travel corridor list
The number of countries that travellers can visit from the UK without any restrictions has risen after transport secretary Grant Shapps added the Canaries, Denmark, Mykonos and the Maldives to the travel corridor list on 22 October. Mykonos had been the only island in Greece that wasn’t on the travel corridor list. Sweden, Greece and Gibraltar remain on the travel corridor list but the German government is requiring travellers from anywhere in the UK to quarantine for 14 days on entering Germany, as of 11.01 on 23 October. The UK Foreign Office travel advice states “those who can provide evidence of a negative test taken in a European Union member state or a state with comparable quality standards less than 48 hours prior to arrival may be exempted from the requirement to quarantine.”
Although Denmark has been added to the UK’s green list, the Danish government has banned UK travellers “without a worthy purpose”. All tourists visiting the Maldives must present a negative Covid test on arrival.
