Eight countries set to move from Amber List to Green List next week
Eight countries could be added to the “government green list” after the traffic light review next week.
Currently there are 12 countries in the green tier, with Portugal being the most popular holiday destination on the list that UK holidaymakers are allowed to enter with limited restrictions.
The countries on the green list are destinations from which the British will not need to isolate themselves for 10 days after their return. However, you must take a COVID-19 test on or before the second day after your arrival.

He said: “Putting the United States on the green list would be huge news, but with the government criticized for not putting India on the red list soon enough, I suspect they will want to be seen as taking an action. careful line.
“So the United States is probably going to miss the cup this time around.
“But I think it will be difficult to find rational reasons to exclude it at the next review point later in June, unless variations of concern provide the excuse.”
When the green list was confirmed, it was announced that the countries on the list would be reviewed every three weeks.
This would mean that the next update will take place on June 7.
