Following a traffic light shake-up, the FCDOs of Spain, Portugal, Greece, Croatia, and Bulgaria have issued advise.
THE GOVERNMENT’S TRAFFIC LIGHT SYSTEM CONTINUES TO CHANGE TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS. The FCDO has published fresh travel advise for Spain, Portugal, Greece, Croatia, and Bulgaria in response to the latest red, amber, and green list updates.
Travel laws and limits are subject to change at any time, putting eager vacationers at risk of being caught off guard by the government’s traffic light list. Secretary of State for Transportation Grant Shapps unveiled the newest adjustments to the traffic signal system on Thursday night.
The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) revised its travel advice websites for a number of nations to reflect this.
Spain, Portugal, Greece, Croatia, and Bulgaria were among them.
For Britons planning a trip to the countries, here is the most up-to-date travel information.
Following Thursday night’s announcement, which saw the Balearic Islands removed from the green list, all of mainland Spain and its archipelagos are now on the amber list.
“Spain, including the Canary Islands, is on the amber list for entering England,” the FCDO explains in its most recent report.
“The Balearic Islands are on England’s green list for entry.
“Beginning at 4 a.m. on Monday, July 19th, the Balearic Islands will be placed on the amber list for entry into England.”
As a result, as of July 19, unvaccinated Britons will be required to self-isolate for ten days upon their return to the UK.
Britons who have been properly vaccinated no longer need to segregate themselves during this period.
Regardless of vaccination status, all Britons must do a PCR test before and after departure.
Despite the change in the rules, Spain continues to welcome UK visitors.
“As of July 2, the Spanish government requires all entrants to Spain from the United Kingdom to provide one of the following: a negative COVID-19 test; or confirmation of vaccination,” according to the FCDO.
Portugal is still on the UK’s amber travel list, but Madeira is now on the green list.
“Portugal, including the Azores, is on the amber list for entering England,” according to the FCDO.
“The island of Madeira is on the green list for entry into the United Kingdom.”
Visitors from the United Kingdom are welcome to visit Portugal, but they must meet certain entrance restrictions.
“Travellers from the United Kingdom who are not fully vaccinated must quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in mainland Portugal,” the FCDO explains.
“All travelers, with the exception of children under the age of 12, must have proof of a negative COVID-19 test to travel to or through mainland Portugal,” it continues.
