Balearic Islands back on UK’s amber list

Latest: Coronavirus in Spain figures (21 July)

The Balearic Islands of Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera are being moved back onto the UK’s amber list of travel destinations.

The UK’s Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said the move takes effect from 4am on Monday 19 July.

The Balearic Islands had only been moved to the UK’s travel green list on Wednesday 30 June, with the rest of Spain remaining on the amber list.

The change means that returning to England from Spain, including from the Balearic Islands from Monday 19 July, will still require quarantine for 10 days unless you are fully NHS-vaccinated. Last week Shapps said that fully NHS-vaccinated adults will no longer need to isolate when arriving back to England from amber list countries and that children under-18 will also not need to self-isolate. Britons living overseas will not be able to prove their vaccine status if they have been jabbed abroad.

We will be updating this report.
