More holiday options have been introduced for sun-starved Brits as Malta and the Balearic Islands have been added to the green list.
This means British holidaymakers will not have to quarantine for 10 days after they return.
The Balearics are a popular holiday destination and include places like Ibiza, Majorca and Minorca.
The Spanish mainland itself remains on the amber list.
However, holidaymakers will need to be aware that both countries recently announced stricter rules for travellers coming in.
Malta is now asking those who are fully-vaccinated to provide proof as they come into the country. Anyone who has not received their jabs will be asked to isolate when they arrive.
Everyone coming into the country will have their temperature checked and those with high temperatures will need a swab test.

Malta is also currently on the government’s “green watchlist”, which means it could move back to amber in the future.
Visitors to the Balearics will also now also have to meet stricter entry requirements.
People arriving in the country will have to present a negative Covid test or proof of vaccination.
