Britain opens borders to double jabbed US and EU citizens from 02 August

The UK has opened its borders to double jabbed citizens from the US and Europe from 02 August, the UK government has announced.


British ministers are set to announce that Spain will not be placed on the travel "red list," because of a significant fall in cases and will remain on the amber list, The Times reported on Tuesday.

Today it has been reported that Spain has seen a significant drop in Beta cases, a variant which ministers believe may be more resistant to vaccines.

There are also concerns there are not enough hotel rooms in England to quarantine returning holidaymakers.

Ministers are expected to announce that Spain will remain on the amber list.

Government insiders told The Times that the hotel quarantine policy would not be sustainable if Spain was added to the red list.

It would be ridiculous to put it on any higher alert than amber, we need to learn to live with this virus and the data shows it’s moving in the right direction
