Now the fully vaccinated Britons can now visit the “green list” Faroe Islands quarantine-free after an easing of restrictions by the Danish government. The Danish authorities announced that the country is now allowing double-jabbed British tourists to enter, providing they can produce negative PCR tests.
But don’t get too excited about the idea of a city break to Copenhagen: the Danish mainland is still on the UK’s “amber list”, meaning returning travellers face a 10-day quarantine upon arrival back into the UK.
The Faroe Islands, however, have been on the United Kingdom’s slender green list since 17 May; holidaymakers returning directly from there need not self-isolate and are simply required to take one pre-departure and one post-arrival Covid test.
Visit Faroe Islands told that they are looking forward to welcoming British visitors this summer as the Faroe Islands are now open to UK travellers who are fully vaccinated. The direct UK flights from Edinburgh to the Faroe Islands will resume on 1 July with Atlantic Airways.
The Faroe Islands is made up of 18 volcanic isles and sits northwest of Scotland, halfway between Iceland and Norway in the North Atlantic Ocean. The archipelago is connected by road tunnels, ferries, causeways and bridges.
The Green list destination Iceland is also welcoming British visitors who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
The only other viable holiday destination on the United Kingdom’s green list is Gibraltar, which non-vaccinated travellers can visit quarantine-free.
