France 'to be moved' from UK amber list offering hope for holidaymakers - sources

An announcement is anticipated towards the end of the week confirming the restriction drop, the Times has found. Government officials point to the transmissibility of the Beta variant in their decision making.

The Delta variant that is surging in the UK will “out-compete” the Beta variant in France, according to sources.

“Because Delta is so transmissible, it is very likely it will out-compete Beta in Europe in the coming weeks,” a source told the Times.

“Spain is unlikely to go on amber plus.”

People traveling to green list countries, such as Malta and Gibraltar, only need a PCR test and are not required to quarantine.

Adults who are fully vaccinated and under-18s follow the same rules when traveling to amber list countries.
