Greece has remained on the UK’s “amber list,” which requires that travelers quarantine for 10 days on return to the country and take two pre-booked Covid-19 tests whilst in quarantine.
Britain added seven countries, including Egypt and Sri Lanka, to its “red list” of destinations that require hotel quarantine on return to England on Thursday, in a review that also saw Portugal move from “green” to “amber.”
No countries were added to the quarantine-free green list.
The full list of countries added to the “red list” is: Afghanistan, Bahrain, Costa Rica, Egypt, Sri Lanka, Sudan, and Trinidad & Tobago.
All changes to the lists will come into effect at 3 a.m. GMT on June 8, the government said. [Reuters, Kathimerini]
