GIBRALTAR made it to the UK's very slim green list – allowing Brits to enjoy quarantine-free travel.
If you've decided that you fancy a trip to Gibraltar – here is what you need to know for your getaway.
Is Gibraltar on the green list?
Gibraltar is one of the few on the the green list, as it was the first nation to offer the vaccine to the entire population.
Countries have been placed on a green, amber or red list depending on the risk they pose to the UK, as well as the current Covid situation in the country and their own vaccine rollout.
Brits can avoid having to quarantine and will only need:
- A negative test taken before returning to the UK
- A PCR test on day two of your return
Here are some of the best Gibraltar holiday deals.
In total, Gibraltar has seen 4,323 cases of Covid, and 94 deaths since the pandemic began but has reported no new deaths or cases.
What are the travel restrictions for Gibraltar?
The country has said they will not require Covid tests or evidence of vaccine to enter from the UK – making it the easiest destination with no travel restrictions.
And with three-hour flights to Gibraltar from £28.99 with easyJet or three night weekend breaks and flights from £129 with British Airways, it could be the next destination for a British holiday abroad.
Restaurants and bars are all open, both indoor and outside, with cable cars to the top of the famous Gibraltar Rock tourist attraction.
Thousands of Brits have already headed to UK's major airports to head on their first holiday of the year.
Only Portugal, Gibraltar and Israel are the short-haul destinations on the green list.
It also includes Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Brunei, Iceland and the Faroe Islands and the Falklands.
Spain is among the countries hoping to open from June. France says tourists with a French Covid 'health pass' will be welcomed from June 9.
