The government is due to give its final advice to travelers on Thursday after Matt Hancock gave hope to the prospect of a summer vacation this year.
Ministers will reveal which countries, if any, need to move to the green list without quarantine and which travel continues to be banned or restricted.
It comes like the health secretary suggested trips abroad abroad all Amber List countries could be on the cards for those who have received two doses of vaccination in the near future, with the government hoping that a trial to replace quarantine with daily testing will prove effective.
Popular vacation hot spots, including Malta and the Balearic Islands, could be added to the “green list” as part of the government’s traffic light system for overseas travel, reports suggest.
According to The Times, ministers could also announce on Thursday that fully vaccinated people returning from Amber List countries would not need to quarantine themselves at home for ten days from August.
Children traveling with their parents who have both received two doses of the vaccine may also be exempt from quarantine measures, the newspaper suggested.
This would mean that people who have had two injections could travel to countries like France, Spain, Portugal, Greece and the United States and not have to self-isolate on their return.
Earlier this week, Mr Hancock said it was “absolutely something” the government was working on, but did not say when such a measure could be introduced.
“It has not yet been clinically recommended, we are working on it”, Matt hancock said of the move, which would see the current ten-day isolation replaced by a COVID-19[female[feminine trial.
“When I am able to say something, we will,” he continued.
