Heathrow and Gatwick: The 21 countries that should be on the green list, including Italy, Germany, Malta and the Canary and Balearic Islands


The UK government’s next review of countries on the green list for vacationers to travel to will be on June 24th.

With Boris Johnson extending restrictions in England until July 19, it is unlikely that overseas travel will be recommended until then.

However, several countries could get the green light in time for the school summer holidays, as Spiegel reported.

And according to current figures, Malta is one of the front runners, where the case rate is only 7 per 100,000 inhabitants.

We looked at the countries that are most likely to be on the green list for the next review.

The 10 Countries That Are Most Likely to Go Green


Malta remains on the UK’s amber list, but that could soon change

It currently has a case rate of only seven, and three-quarters of the population are vaccinated.

When Malta did not go green last time, Foreign Minister Evarist Bartolo had some scathing words to say.

“The (UK government) is ignoring scientific advice. Instead, it has made a political decision not to allow travel anywhere, despite the pressure it is facing from airlines, tourism companies and the population, ”he wrote on Facebook.

Canary Islands

The island chain includes destinations such as Tenerife, Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria.

Although it’s currently classified as amber, it’s on a good foundation with its covid rate of 38.4 (out of 34.7) and jab rate of 47.8 (out of 37.7).

Balearic Islands

The Covid rate is now 21.7 and the first stab is 45.7 percent, compared to 38.4 and 37.7 on May 27.

Spain as a whole now has a disease rate of 61.5 and vaccination rates of 43.4 percent.

The four largest islands are Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera.


Amber, Germany’s numbers, are currently going in the right direction.

It now has a coronavirus rate of 24.5 and a jab rate of 46.7, improvements of 86.1 and 40.7 percent, respectively.

United States

According to the PC Agency, a travel PR agency that analyzes vacation destination numbers, the United States currently has numbers for one country on the green list.

Currently, the coronavirus case rate is 31 per 100,000 people, compared to 71.4 on Jan.

It currently has a coronavirus rate of 27.5 and a single-dose vaccination percentage of 45.4.

This is a big improvement over May 27, when the numbers were 80.3 and 35 percent, respectively.


Jamaica is a strong contender for the green list – it is currently one of the lowest in the world with a case rate of 14.4.

Whether because of its low total first jab score of just 5.3 percent or other factors, it remains on the yellow list for now.


In this Nordic country, the numbers are going in the right direction, with the number of cases falling from 25 to 14.4 and the percentage of stings increasing from 42.3 to 48.8.

Those numbers are very cheap compared to Sweden, which is on the Amber List, with a coronavirus rate of 176.


The coronavirus case numbers remain very good at 16.1 in the last seven days per 100,000 people.

However, the first dose numbers of 19.1 are less good and are slowly rising, meaning Mexico is an outside bet for the green list.
