Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has confirmed Malta, the Balearic Islands and Caribbean Islands were among the countries which will be added to the green list.
This will come into effect from Wednesday at 4am, meaning millions of people will be scrambling to book a week or two of escapist fun.
But many of those holiday island spots favoured by Brits have imposed strict party-pooping rules, meaning you could be breaking the law on a night out.

Worse still destinations famed for their clubbing have BANNED dancing — indoors and outside.
