Turkey could be taken off the “red” travel list as the government is due to review the traffic light system for international travel this week.
Turkey is a popular destination for Britons who have not been able to travel there for about a year due to the cornavirus pandemic.
National reports suggest analysts believe Turkey could be taken off the red list, which has the tightest restrictions. Under current rules, travelers will have to self-quarantine upon returning from the country in a hotel for ten days, which could cost Â£ 2,285.
Pressure is mounting for Turkey to turn orange, which would mean that all adults who have received two doses of the vaccine and those under the age of 18 could avoid quarantine when they return to the UK, Mirror reports.
Other popular destinations including Spain, Portugal and Greece are expected to stay orange.
Paul Charles, founder of travel consulting firm PC Agency, told The Times: âTurkey really deserves to be on the Amber List because it has some of the best Covid security policies in place, especially in hotels and the like. tourist areas and worked hard. to reduce its infection rates.
“Many agree that it feels safer here than in the UK.”
