Green list travel changes expected TODAY with Turkey tipped to be removed from red list in major holiday boost

CHANGES to the traffic light travel lists are expected today – with Turkey tipped to be finally struck off the red list.

More countries could open up as autumn holiday destinations if they’re bumped from red to either amber or green in the coming days.

Ministers are conducting their three-week review of the traffic light system ahead of a wider shake-up of travel due next month.

Turkey has long been speculated to be bumped from red to amber, meaning double-jabbed Brits can return without having to endure expensive hotel quarantine.

The country has been pressuring to come off the red list despite recording its highest number of cases since May 4 on Tuesday.

Pakistan and Bangladesh are also hoping to come off the red list to open up a travel corridor for expats settled in the UK.

Today’s three-weekly review of the green, amber and red lists come before ministers announce a radical overhaul to fire up international travel after the pandemic.

Health Secretary Sajid Javid all but confirmed that expensive PCR tests would be ditched for fully-vaxxed arrivals in the UK.

Ministers are expected to sign off on letting them take cheaper lateral flow alternatives on day two of their arrival.

The traffic light system could also be simplified to a Go/No Go list, with many more countries available for travel.

Up to 24 countries could be added to the green list this week including Turkey and Egypt
