Can I still go on holiday to Majorca and Ibiza? Rules to avoid amber list quarantine


The Balearic Islands have been added to the Government’s amber travel list, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has confirmed. Popular tourist destinations, including Ibiza and Majorca, has seen new daily Covid cases double in recent weeks, he claimed.

But if you planned to go on holiday to the Balearics, you can still enjoy the sun, sea and sand without having to quarantine.

Mr Shapps explained that from Monday July 19, there will be some changes to the quarantine rules for arrivals from amber list countries.


Anybody under the age of 18 will no longer need to self-isolate at home for 10 days.

If you’re fully vaccinated against coronavirus, you can also treat the destination as if it were still on the green list.

He told Sky News: “Helpfully for some people, children, those under 18, plus those that have been double vaccinated, you won’t have to quarantine. You can treat it as if it is still a green country.


“But it will mean, I’m afraid to say, for some people that they will have to come home, and they will have to do those 10 days of quarantine… or five days with test to release, which is still available to everybody.

“When we put them on the green watchlist, from then, we’ve seen rates double, and also the rates of positivity of these tests double, meaning we’re going to have to move quickly.”
