Greece has been removed from the UK’s travel corridor. However, five Greek islands have been exempted from the action by officials.
According to the news, Corfu, Crete, Rhodes, Zakynthos, and Kos will remain on the UK’s safe list, but all returning travelers from all other parts of Greece will be required to quarantine beginning 4am tomorrow morning.
The corridor has expanded by accepting Bahrain, Chile, Iceland, Cambodia, Laos, UAE, Qatar, and Turks & Caicos, and the UAE in particular could give winter sun sales a late boost.
