Travel to popular tourist destinations such as the Canary Islands, Malta, Crete and Corfu has been declared safe by the Foreign Office in a major boost to hopes of an overseas holiday.

Official warnings against non-essential travel to key holiday hotspots have been quietly dropped in recent days, reflecting the increase in vaccination rates and a cut in cases of Covid-19.

The Foreign Office said that it was no longer advising against travel to the Greek islands of Rhodes, Crete, Corfu, Zante and Kos alongside Spain’s Canary Islands, which includes Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote.

Further changes made by the Foreign Office include approving non-essential travel to Portugal — with the exception of the Azores — as well as Malta and Israel.
