England travel ‘green list’ to include 12 countries

If you are holding out the prospect of a foreign getaway then from May 17th people in England can now travel to 12 countries on the “green list” without having to quarantine upon return.

These include Portugal, Israel, Australia and that tourist hotspot, the South Sandwich Islands. A gold star for anyone who can find them on a map.

The Transport Secretary also announced that people who’ve had both doses of a Covid vaccine will be able to use the NHS app to show their fully vaccinated status.
