Fully-vaccinated arrivals from France no longer have to isolate as travel rules change

Travel rules changed early on Sunday meaning the rules for people who return from a trip to Paris or holiday on the riviera no longer need to self-isolate provided they have had two jabs.

However, travellers have scrambled to return from Mexico before 4am. The popular holiday destination has been added to the red list, which will require a hotel quarantine for 10 days at an increased cost of £2,285.

Austria, Germany, Slovenia, Slovakia, Latvia, Romania and Norway have been put on the green list, allowing for quarantine-free travel for all tourists provided they test negative when coming back.

That means more European destinations have become viable to travel to, in what could be a boost for the badly-hit travel sector.

France was also in its own category, "amber plus", due to worries about the Beta variant. It is now in the amber list and no extra conditions are attached to travel beyond that list's requirements.

There has been a lot of criticism of the traffic light system due to countries moving quickly between the three lists, and the addition of the "green watchlist", for countries that could turn amber, and a mooted "amber watchlist", for destinations that could go red, but that idea has been scrapped.
