It’s taken a while, six weeks in fact, but Malta has now been placed on the official ‘Green list’ allowing quarantine-free travel when returning back into the UK.
As the only country which has been added to the ‘full’ Green list, Malta is one of the most interesting islands in the Mediterranean, having been ruled by the Phoenicians, Romans, and the British. As well as great culture and history, Malta is also a great place to go with a family, with some wonderful coastal hotels designed with children in mind, and for those a little more adventurous, it’s also a great place to go diving with crystal clear waters.
With an expectation that demand will increase over the next few weeks, easyJet has just put on sale a brand new service from Luton to Malta, twice weekly from 11 July – all bookable through TravelTime World.
In addition to Malta, several other European and Caribbean Islands made the ‘Green Watch List’, which although form part of the official Green List comes with a caveat, they can be taken off the list at any moment, you have to be aware that any of the islands could change to Amber at very short notice. These include Barbados, Antigua, Anguilla, Turks & Caicos, British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Cayman Islands and Bermuda (although not technically Caribbean) in the Caribbean region, and Madeira and the Balearics in Europe.
Isreal was demoted to the Amber list, whilst Kuwait, Dominican Republic/Haiti and Uganda.
