As part of the traffic light system, countries have been classified as either green, amber, or red, depending on the state of the pandemic and rate of vaccinations.
Brits who travel to "green" list countries will be able to return to England without quarantine restrictions but will require a pre-flight Covid test as well as a PCR test on day two of returning to the UK.
The destinations that have made the 'green' list have kept their Covid cases low and/or have had vaccination drives that are progressing quickly.
Portugal has kept cases low while Gibraltar has vaccinated all adults in the country, meaning both European destinations have been deemed low-risk.
