France to be moved from UK amber list, sources say - hope for British holidaymakers

Spain: Paul Scully discusses amber list

An announcement is anticipated towards the end of the week confirming the lifting of restrictions. 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, a source told The Times.

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

“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.
