Quarantine-free holidays in Ibiza and a number of other destinations have kicked off today since the UK updated its green list.

Any green list holiday destination can now be travelled back from without the need to quarantine on return.

This has opened up holiday opportunities again for many Britons who are missing foreign travel.

The Balearic Islands are on the green list, so Formentera, Ibiza, Mallorca, and Menorca are all open.

Madeira, Malta, Barbados and Bermuda are other popular destinations for Britons that are on the green list.

Those travelling in green lists do not have to quarantine, but they do have to take a covid test before returning and have proof of a negative test.

They must also book a test for two days after their return.

If this test on return is positive you will need to quarantine, or of NHS Test & Trace finds a fellow traveller has tested positive.

You will also need to complete a traveller locator form online before arriving back in the UK.

This will need to be shown before you check-in for your return flight.

Malta travel requirements have been called “hard line” by an expert. 

Simon Calder has declared Malta holidays “for the bold and the desperate”.

He said: “All I can say is that what Malta is stipulating is so hard line that I’m hopeful that they will back down pretty soon.

“They are also saying that anybody who is under 18, well you can only get in with vaccinated parents if you are under 12 and even then five to 11-year-olds will need to have a PCR test.”
