All the changes to the travel lists including Thailand and Canada

A host of popular European holiday destinations including Finland and Switzerland have been placed on England’s green travel list in the latest traffic light shuffle.

Yesterday (August 26) the Department for Transport confirmed their updated travel list which details the restrictions each traveller must jump through to visit individual countries.

Several places are moving onto the green and red lists but there were no additions to the amber register.

: Heathrow and Gatwick: The Caribbean islands set to move to red list in travel rules update

Denmark, Finland, Switzerland, Canada, Lithuania, Liechtenstein and the Azores will be bumped up from amber to green from 4am on Monday August 30.

However, mainland Portugal will remain in the amber straits which will no doubt be a cause of great consternation for some UK tourists.

Meanwhile, Montenegro and Thailand will move from amber to red.



Canada has been bumped up to green

The current traffic rules are:

  • Green list: No self-isolation or quarantine when you return to the UK, although you will need to take a PCR test on day two.
  • Amber list: You’ll need to self-isolate at home for 10 days, and take PCR tests on days two and eight. However, those who are fully vaccinated can swerve the self-isolation.
  • Red list: You’ll need to stay in a quarantine hotel for at least 10 days. Holidaymakers need to fork out the cost themselves which is over £2,000.

If anyone is thinking of going on holiday this summer from Gatwick or Heathrow, here are the updated green, amber and red lists.
