Popular holiday destinations are not expected to be on the government's 'green list' of countries deemed safe to travel to

Spain, Portugal and France are unlikely to be on the travel 'green list' which is due to be published on Monday, this is due to the higher rates of COVID-19 in those countries.

Dr Cillian De Gascun, chair of the expert advisory group to NPHET, said in an interview with The Irish Times that those regions were "not at a safe level" now.

The green list means people arriving here from those countries will not be asked to self-quarantine and restrict their movement for 14 days.

It was confirmed by Minister of Foreign Affairs Simon Coveney yesterday that the US will not be on the travel list' and Britain is "unlikely" to make the cut.
