The removal of the Azores and Madeira on Thursday means there are now only 11 destinations in Europe on the UK’s travel corridor list. Only four of these are open to non-essential travellers, and these four are all imposing severe restrictions.
Open (with severe restrictions)
Greek islands: Corfu, Crete, Kos, Rhodes, Zakynthos
All arrivals into Greece need to provide proof of a negative PCR test no more than 72 hours old. Anyone entering from the UK will also be asked to undergo a rapid test on arrival. Arrivals from the UK are currently required to self-isolate for 7 days in the event of a negative test result. In the event of a positive test result, travellers will have to isolate for at least 14 days. In either case, travellers will need to undertake a further PCR test at the end of their period of self-isolation.
All persons arriving in to The Islands of Guernsey from anywhere in the world must self-isolate for 21 days on arrival, unless opting to take a test following 13 days of self-isolation and receive a negative result thereafter.
All arrivals (except those from Northern Ireland) must show evidence of a negative PCR test carried out in the previous 72 hours. UK arrivals should self-isolate for 14 days.
All UK regions (England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales) are classified with red travel status. Arrivals must take a test on arrival, a second on day 5, and another on day 10. During this time they must self-isolate. If all tests are negative that can leave their quarantine on day 10.

Entry to Finland is prohibited for non-resident foreign nationals entering, with limited exemptions. If you’re eligible to enter Finland from the UK, you will need to self-isolate for 10 days after arrival.
