Seven Greek islands have been removed from the ‘Travel Corridors’ exemption list.

This means that anyone travelling to Northern Ireland from Lesvos, Tinos, Serifos, Crete, Mykonos, Santorini and Zakynthos (Zante) from 4am tomorrow (Wednesday), September 9, will need to self-isolate for 14 days.

The rest of Greece remains on the Travel Corridors exemption list.

Speaking about the changes, Health Minister Robin Swann said: “We will continue to monitor the situation in all countries and will move swiftly to make changes to the regulations when necessary.

“As we have seen in recent weeks, a quarantine period for people arriving from certain countries can be introduced very quickly so bear this in mind if you are planning any travel.

“The safety of the citizens of Northern Ireland will always be my priority.”
