This list for the UK is formed of the destinations (including countries and territories) that have a low risk of coronavirus.
It is important to remember that England, Ireland, Wales and Scotland have different lists, so the countries on each won't always be the same.
Don't forget! Just because a destination is on the list, it does not necessarily mean you can visit from England or Scotland.
It does mean that people currently in those countries can come to the UK without having to quarantine. Before travelling, it is still paramount that you check the travel restrictions in place for the country or island you want to visit.
That said, some places on the list do allow travellers from England and Scotland to visit, which means you can go on holiday there without having to self-isolate on arrival or on return. Again, it's important you check the official travel advice for individual destinations.
Seychelles, Botswana, Mauritius, Israel and Jerusalem were removed from the list on 9 January.
United Arab Emirates was removed from the list on the 12 January.
Azores, Madeira, Aruba, Chile, Qatar and Bonaire/ St Eustatius/ Saba will be removed from the list at 4am on Saturday 16 January.
You don't need to isolate on arrival to these countries, or on return to England or Scotland. However, other measures may be in place such as the requirement to take tests or fill out forms, so it is important to check the specific advice for each destination.
Be aware that while St Barthélemy is still on the exempt list, St Martin has been taken off, meaning you will need to self-isolate on your return to the UK from St Martin.
