Four countries removed from no-quarantine list for Brits – including Portugal

Many of us decided to take a trip abroad after lockdown ended believing that the travel corridors list was unlikely to change drastically.

The list details which countries you can travel to from the UK and not have to self-isolate when you return.

For many, a 14-day quarantine means they can’t work which can be disastrous for families.

Unfortunately, rising coronavirus cases means that a number of countries moved off of the list over the last few months.

France and Spain were both removed causing Brits to race back home before the quarantine deadline.

Now, four more countries are set to be removed as well.

Brits have until 4am on Saturday to return from Portugal to the UK or they will face a two-week quarantine.

The country was only added to the “green” list a couple if weeks ago causing a flood of holidaymakers to book trips.

However, a rise in cases means it’s being taken off of the list.

The Portuguese islands of Madeira and the Azores are exempt.

Hungary, which was closed to the UK all summer, has also been taken off of the safe list.

Meaning Brits looking to holiday in beautiful Budapest must self-isolate when they return.

Also being removed from the list is stunning French Polynesia.

The gorgeous collection of islands and atolls include Tahiti and Bora Bora.

Travellers often visit the area to stay in Maldives-style overwater bungalows, but they too must now stay at home for 14 days after coming home.

Finally, the tiny nation of Reunion in the Indian Ocean has been removed from the travel corridors list.

Known for its rainforest interior, volcanos and coral reefs, it’s now a no-go.

When self-isolating, Brits must return straight home from the airport – no stopping at the supermarket – and remain at home for 14 days.

On the plus side, Sweden’s infection rate has tumbled and so the nation has been added to the “safe” list.
