UPDATE: Britain's travel ‘green list’ unchanged despite speculation of Greek islands inclusion.

A number of Greek islands are expected to be included in the updated British "green list" for tourism.

Already reports in the British press - citing their own information - say that the green list is expected to include islands such as Zakynthos, Rhodes, Kos and Kefalonia.

Other publications want Mykonos and Santorini to be included in the same list.

In particular, according to the British newspaper Independent, according to travel expert and founder of the PC Office Paul Charles, it is possible to see an expanded green list to include Santorini and Mykonos.

According to the latest information, the British Foreign Office considers some Greek islands "safe".

According to the British Foreign Office, the islands of Rhodes, Kos, Zakynthos, Corfu and Crete are considered "low risk" areas.

For his part, the British travel agent Simon Calder estimates that the Greek islands that have many chances to be included in the "green list" of Britain are Kefalonia, Kos, Mykonos, Santorini and Zakynthos.

Corfu, Lesvos and Rhodes have less chances.

Announcements, however, are officially expected within the day.

However, the government of Boris Johnson, according to British media, will maintain the strict policy it has adopted in international travel, but there will be "shifts" and changes.

The new lists will be announced from London today and are expected to take effect from Monday.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has warned that the Government "will not hesitate" to axe countries from the green list for travel amid growing concern that Portugal could be removed.

Earlier today, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis made special reference to the European digital COVID-19 certificate.

He noted that “Greece is one of the first six countries to have launched the process of issuing the certificate, which allows the restart of tourism and our economy.”
