A list of 73 countries and territories where English holidaymakers can visit without self-isolating on their return has been published by the UK Government.
It features popular short-haul destinations such as Spain, France, Italy, Turkey, Greece and Cyprus, as well as long-haul locations including Australia, Barbados, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand and Vietnam.
Fourteen British Overseas Territories are also included.
Portugal, the US, China and Thailand are among the notable absentees.

Approved destinations pose “a reduced risk to the public health of UK citizens” but the list will be kept “under constant review”, the Department for Transport said.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office will exempt the approved countries from its advisory against all non-essential travel from Saturday, while the quarantine policy will be amended from July 10.
That means people who depart on Saturday and spend at least six days in one of the listed locations will not need to self-isolate on their return.
The full list is:
Antigua and Barbuda
Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba
St Kitts and Nevis
St Pierre and Miquelon
Trinidad and Tobago
As well as those listed above, the 14 British Overseas Territories will also be exempt from the quarantine measures, according to the gov.uk website.
