Gibraltar was on the list but has been deemed “high-risk” with Portugal, which recently had to reimpose lockdown in Lisbon after a series of Covid breakouts.

Officials at No10, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Department for Transport are drawing up a list of nations to add beyond the first review, with Turkey and Dubai possibles.

Countries are ordered in “high,” “medium,” and “low” risk.

Brits could also be able to fly to the Caribbean soon as the Government looks to prioritise travel to 14 “low-risk” British Overseas Territories, including Bermuda and the Cayman Islands.

It would mean passengers will not have to quarantine when returning to the UK.

Boris Johnson announced the opening of UK “staycations” from July.

However the travel industry has called on the government to publish a clearer roadmap to get it going again.

Holiday organisation ABTA said: “The travel sector remains in a perilous state, with redundancies announced each week, and more needs to be done to help the whole sector recover.

“We need a more comprehensive roadmap as soon as possible that includes timeframes for relaxing international travel restrictions too so businesses and customers can plan ahead.

“The process of sending people on holiday is not like turning on a tap; as much advance notice as possible from the Government is required for travel companies to restart operations.”
