Countries with restrictions such as the need to quarantine on arrival, such as Australia, or return, such as Spain, are shown in dark blue.

Other countries to which travel is banned or discouraged are marked in grey.

There are currently 57 countries and British overseas territories with no quarantine restrictions from Scotland.

However, these differ from those for people travelling from England, and do not include Spain – Scotland’s most popular overseas destination – and Serbia.

Travel agents in Scotland have reported that up to one in five of their customers with Spain holiday bookings were planning to fly from English airports instead.

However, the Scottish Government has said they will be traced as passengers arriving in the UK have to complete a form with their details, which is passed to Public Heath Scotland.
