What are the UK's rules?
Foreign holidays are legal, but under England's traffic light system very few countries are on the green list of safe destinations.
The government says you should not holiday in amber and red countries. If you do, quarantine rules apply and there are Covid tests before and after you return.
However, the government is considering removing the need to quarantine for double-vaccinated travellers from England who are returning from countries on the amber list.
How can I prove I've had both my Covid jabs?
Similar traffic light rules apply in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.
Traffic light decisions are reviewed by ministers every three weeks, with the next decision due before 28 June.
