Travel news: Denmark travel corridor at risk as Greece joins ‘amber list’

Denmark is at risk of losing its travel corridor with the UK this week, while mainland Greece has moved into the “amber zone”. 

The seven-day infection rate per 100,000 residents has reached 28.8 in Denmark, putting it above “red-listed” Jamaica and Belgium. The UK Government considers adding a country to the quarantine list when its seven-day rate tops 20 cases per 100,000 people.

Greece’s rolling seven-day rate is now 15.4 cases per 100,000 residents moving it into the “amber zone” alongside Italy (16.5 per 100,000)

The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) is advising against all but essential travel to the Greek islands of Crete, Lesvos, Mykonos, Santorini Serifos, Tinos and Zakynthos. As of September 9, arrivals from these islands to England and Northern Ireland are subject to 14 days of self-isolation; Wales has quarantine restrictions in place for Mykonos, Zakynthos (Zante), Lesvos, Paros and Antiparos, Crete, Santorini, Serifos and Tinos. 

Mainland Greece remains on the UK’s quarantine-free list, however, arrivals to Scotland from anywhere in Greece are required to self-isolate.

Ongoing changes to the holiday quarantine list have seen holidaymakers racing back to the UK, or cancelling trips, and facing surging flight prices to avoid two-weeks of self-isolation. Changes to the list are announced each Thursday following the Government’s weekly review.
