Turkey, Poland, Bonaire, St Eustatius and Saba are the latest additions to the Government’s quarantine list as their infection rates rise beyond what is deemed safe. Most Brits are put off at the thought of needing to stay at home for 14 days on return from a luxurious holiday, and that’s the case with every place on the quarantine list. Don’t worry, there are still plenty of holiday destinations to choose from. Express.co.uk reveals the 60 countries you can still go to WITHOUT needing to quarantine on return.
The travel corridor list is reviewed every week, normally on a Thursday, and is getting shorter and shorter each time.
From 4am today, Brits returning from Turkey, Poland, Bonaire, St Eustatius and Saba will need to self-isolate in return.
Last week it was announced that Iceland, Denmark, Slovakia, and Curacao were also being stripped of their places on the safe list.
Before that, Singapore and Thailand were taken off the list.

At present, there are 60 countries remaining on the travel corridor exemption list.
