Popular Spanish holiday islands ‘to be moved back to amber list’

Popular Spanish holiday islands ‘to be moved back to amber list’.

Popular Spanish holiday islands are in danger of being moved back to the amber travel list, according to reports.

Popular tourist hotspots like Ibiza, Mallorca and Menorca, have been on the quarantine-free green list for just two weeks.

Reports suggest that this week, they could be downgraded to the amber list on the ‘traffic light system’ due to rising coronavirus cases.

If moved to amber, it would be a frustrating change for travellers booked to head to the sunny climate between now and July 19.

Brits could face disappointment as Spanish holiday islands expected to return to amber list.

The Sun, which first reported the travel change, quoted a source saying: “It’s all still up for discussion, but the figures aren’t great which is why it was on the watch list in the first place.”

The Department for Transport said there was “nothing to say at the moment” on changes to the Balearic islands’ travel status.

But on Wednesday morning, the Transport Secretary did not deny the adjustments.

It would mean 10 days of quarantine for those returning from tourist hotspots including Ibiza, Mallorca and Menorca.
