Malta has announced tighter restrictions for UK holidaymakers less than 24 hours after it was added to the green list.
The Mediterranean island said it will only allow fully vaccinated Britons to visit quarantine-free from next week.
Those who arrive in Malta on June 30 or after will have to quarantine for up to 14 days if they cannot prove they have had two doses.
It means those who booked holidays to the island who are not fully vaccinated face having to re-book or cancel.

It was unclear last night if the NHS app – which can be used to prove vaccination status – will be accepted.
The announcement was made just hours after Transport Secretary Grant Shapps added the holiday hotspot to the UK’s green list on Thursday.
This means holidaymakers will not have to quarantine on return and can take two tests – one before returning and another on day two post-arrival.
Malta has the highest vaccination rate in Europe after Gibraltar, with around 80 per cent of the population having received at least one dose.
