Is your UK holiday now illegal? The 24 countries you can (feasibly) visit right now Holidays may not return to normal 'for three years' Test4Travel: 5,000 travel businesses call for airport testing Sign up to the Telegraph Travel newsletter Four more countries have been removed from Britain’s list of quarantine-free travel options: Denmark, Iceland, Slovakia and the Caribbean island of Curacao. From 4am on Saturday any arrivals from those destinations, including returning holidaymakers, will be required to self-isolate for 14 days. The changes were announced on Twitter by the Transport Secretary Grant Shapps following the Government’s weekly review of its controversial quarantine policy. It means Britons now have just nine holiday options that don’t include some form of test or restriction; both Greece (except for travellers from Scotland, or those visiting certain islands) and Italy survive, along with the likes of Turkey and Germany. Each of the four countries ditched from the green list has seen a recent rise in Covid cases. Denmark, for example, currently has a seven-day case rate of 65.2 per 100,000, while Iceland’s is 80.4. Slovakia’s exclusion is more surprising, while the removal of Curacao is unlikely to affect many Britons – the only flights to the Dutch Caribbean islands are via the Netherlands, which has already been taken off the travel corridors list. See below for the latest updates.
