Spain has been saved from the UK’s red list of countries that is required to quarantine when returning.
Spain has been saved from the UK’s red list after the government confirmed seven new countries will be joining the Green list for travel during the coronavirus pandemic – along with a number of other countries. As expected, it was also confirmed that arrivals from France will no longer need to self-isolate.
Holidaymakers can now head to Spain without the threat of having to quarantine. However, Brits have been warned however to make sure they get PCR tests before making their return to the UK from the Spanish mainland.
Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Slovakia, Latvia, Romania and Norway have all also been added to the quarantine-free green list.
The news will come as a huge boost to millions of Brits hoping to jet off this month, while a number of red list blows will plunge plans into mayhem. The latest rule changes will come into effect from 4 am on Sunday, August 8.
The Government says it will continue to review the data in every country and “will not hesitate” to take action where needed.
In other travel news, India is among four countries being removed from England’s red list as part of a host of changes to the traffic light system for international travel, the Government has announced.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
