It’s certainly becoming slim-pickings now for any Brits looking to head away for a well-earned break or to catch that last bit of “summer sun”. With more countries set to be removed from the UK safe travel corridor list, that list is only likely to go one way.
Below we take a look at where we can still visit:
List of Countries
It’s seen consistent rises over the past few weeks and has just rose above the magic 20/100,000, but it is unlikely to be removed from the UK’s safe travel list this week.
Relatively low cases, likely to remain for the foreseeable.
Greece has been above the 20 cases per 100,000 population (currently 22.5) for some time now, however the UK Government have reaffirmed that this is not the only measure on whether a country is safe or not. It’s likely to be added this week.
Italy initially seemed to manage their infection numbers quite well, whilst other countries saw rises, however over the past few weeks they have also seen substantial rises, moving them above the 20 cases per 100,000 people (28.6).
Likely to remain quarantine free for the foreseeable.
Sweden is another destination likely to turn “red” tomorrow with the latest update. Infection rates are now at 35.2 per 100,000, well above the 20 cutoff.
Cyprus does not require a 14 day isolation period on return to the UK, however you are required to take a PCR test before travel and produce a negative test to be allowed in to the country.
