The double-jab travel announcement has sparked a massive surge in holiday bookings for the Balearics, especially Mallorca.
This is what the new double-jab scheme will mean for UK residents.
Fully vaccinated UK residents arriving in England from amber travel list destinations will no longer have to quarantine from 19 July
They still need to pay for tests before and after their return. The second one must be a PCR test, but they will not need a day 8 test
The rules apply to people 14 days after their final dose of the vaccine
Under-18s returning from amber list places will also be exempt from quarantine
The guidance that people should not travel to amber list countries will also be removed from 19 July
The next review of countries on the green, red and amber lists will be on 15 July – this Thursday
But “an amber list country could still turn red”, warned Mr Shapps, meaning hotel quarantine would become a requirement
Anyone arriving in England from a red list country must still go into government-managed hotel quarantine
