The Balearic Islands, which include tourist hot spots of Ibiza, Mallorca and Menorca, will once again be placed on England’s amber travelers list.
Grant Shapps confirmed that the British Virgin Islands were also moved to the Amber List, following a sharp rise in cases.
People traveling to Amber List countries are currently required to self-isolate for 10 days upon return to England, although from July 19 the quarantine requirement will be lifted for fully vaccinated people and those under 18 years.
They will still have to take a test three days before returning and take a PCR test on the second day in the UK – but not on the eighth day.
Bulgaria and Hong Kong enter the Green Travel List from Monday, while Croatia and Taiwan move from the Amber List to the Green Watch List.
This means people won’t have to self-quarantine when they return to England.
The transport secretary also announced that four countries and territories will join the red list – Cuba, Indonesia, Myanmar and Sierra Leone -om Monday.
Visitors who have left or transited through these countries within the previous 10 days will be refused entry into England.
Only UK or Irish citizens, or those with residence rights, will be able to enter but will be required to stay in a government approved facility for 10 days.
Mr Shapps said: “I think we I now know that traveling right now is not the same as it was before a global pandemic.
“This means that when people book, especially if you book in a country on the Green Watch List, you have to make sure you can get your money back, you have to make sure that you can book your accommodation at all times.
“That’s really what it shows, more than anything else. “
