Indeed.

Those numbers are PER MILLION. Even in the slower vaccinated countries the vulnerable have had at least 1 jab.

​​​​​​Get out from behind the sofa and take a look around. The world is still turning and yet we are sitting back and being told how to live on a daily basis. God help us when we all just nod and agree with the numptys in our government.

Could I gently request moving the discussion towards the addition of new routes between the UK and green list destinations, instead of the (long discussed over many months) question of whether UK residents should be engaging in leisure travel and where travel should be allowed
The aim of the opening post was to ask about new temporary routes to meet green list constraints. An example of this is BA starting Manchester-Faro, TUI opening Birmingham-Funchal or Easyjet Newcastle-Faro

Am I right in thinking that the list announced yesterday applies only to residents of England? If so, when do Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland announce their 'green lists'?

I don't know about NI but I assume that decisions about Scotland and Wales can only be taken once all the votes are counted.

Have I missed something or does the Government realise there is a land border between countries in Europe. British citizens could fly into Faro and hire a rental car and drive to the south of Spain. The borders are open. Similarly they could fly into Lisbon and book a non connecting flight to other EU destinations like Italy. So are they depending on peoples honesty to admit this to the border agencies when they get home?

Indeed it’s a devolved matter.

If you follow the link at #12, It does sayApplies to England (see guidance for Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland)
At the time of going to press, if you follow the link, Wales & NI have their own lists, Whilst Scotand is still say "No International Travel*.

Not even an airport in S Georgia - what a farce!

Given N.Ireland still have the official stance that travellers arriving from GB should self-isolate for 10 days (apart from those travelling for the exceptional circumstances), it seems like it could be a while before they decide on international travel green lists.

Indeed, only last week did the First Minister ask the Health Minister to look at allowing domestic travel from elsewhere in the UK.

British Antarctic Survey might do - but they don't fly from LHR - couldn't get a slot I guess...................

Or even more simplistically, land at GIB and cross the road!

Why might China with 102 new cases in the last week not be on the list?

It’s not decided on case numbers alone. It’s also down to testing standards, ability to carry out genome sequencing etc. Given China doesn’t usually provide reliable factual data I can’t see it being added for some time.

There may be no restriction as to where you go. The restriction is on your return when you are asked to declare what counties you have been in during the last 2 weeks. If you lie on your declaration there may be all sorts of penalties...or not!

British passports will now be stamped entering the EU, so this will be a giveaway if trying to enter Spain from GIB to circumvent the "yellow" zone rules in the former.

You mean we will get stamps in our passports again? That makes Brexit worthwhile!

Does anyone know the likely position on unvaccinated children under 18 is going to be anywhere? The idea of a “family” holiday is a bit short sighted if only the vaccinated parents can travel. As a parent myself I’m more than ok with that after multiple lockdowns and home schooling with the brats!
