For those thinking of heading abroad this summer, you may want to learn more about the current coronavirus situation at your chosen destination.

Earlier this month, the government relaxed a blanket ban on international travel and has issued a list of 66 countries that are deemed ‘safe’ to visit.

While the Foreign Office and Commonwealth (FCO) recently removed Serbia from the list, 33 locations in Europe remain exempt from the advice against ‘all but essential’ international travel.

It means travellers do not need to quarantine for 14 days on their return to the UK.

However when looking at World Health Organisation (WHO) data for Europe, some of the permitted destinations to fly to from the UK are categorised in red, while others are highlighted in green or amber depending on the severity of the virus there.

Those in red include the Netherlands, Turkey and currently not permitted – Portugal. Although the UK is also categorised in red.
