Green list UPDATE: Covid travel review TODAY with Malta and Balearic Islands to go quarantine-free this summer

MILLIONS of sun-starved Brits will today finally get the green light for travel to a slew of  sunshine isles.

Holidaymakers can jet off for a week or more in Malta and Madeira and avoid quarantining when they get back as a new travel green list kicks in at 4am next Wednesday.

The Balearic islands of Ibiza, Majorca and Menorca were last night also on the cusp of being added, with a final decision being made at a meeting today.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps is expected to bump up the holiday islands in changes separate to the Government looking into allowing those who’ve had two vaccine doses, and their kids, to  avoid quarantine.

Currently,  Brits have to get at least two tests when returning from green-list countries, while amber countries require a minimum of three. Gold standard PCR tests required for entry to the UK cost around £120, meaning a massive ­burden on travelling families.
