There are new travel restrictions and requirements in place to help stop the spread of coronavirus and its variants. Check gov.uk/travel-abroad page to help plan your journey.
- You must check the entry requirement for your chosen destination before you travel. You may be required to evidence your COVID-19 vaccination status and/or show a negative PCR test result.
- You will need to take a pre-departure COVID-19 test in the 3 days before your journey to England. Anyone testing positive will not be permitted to travel to England and will be required to follow local rules for isolation – you could incur additional costs during this period.
- Ensure you book COVID tests and complete relevant documentation (such as Passenger Locator Forms) for your destination.
- Those who have travelled from red or amber list countries will be required to quarantine in a hotel (red) or at home (amber) for 10 days and take tests on or before day 2 and on or after day 8 of their quarantine.
- Those who have returned from green list countries will be required to take tests on or before day 2.
- Tests and quarantine must be booked prior to travel.
Fully Vaccinated Travellers* arriving to the UK from a medium-risk, amber list country.
You'll only need to book and pay for a PCR Covid-19 test which must be completed on or before day 2 and there will also be no need to quarantine. As long as you satisfy the below requirements:
- Have not been in a red list country in the 10 days before you arrive in England
- Declare on your Passenger Locator Form that you have been fully vaccinated
- Show proof of your NHS vaccination status to our airport staff when you travel OR for fully vaccinated US or EU customers, show proof of your vaccination status before you fly. For European countries this will be the EU Digital Covid Certificate (EU DCC) and for the USA this is a physical US CDC card, along with proof of US residency such as USA passport,visa or Green Card.
* Fully vaccinated means that you have had your final dose of an approved vaccine at least 14 days before the date you arrive in England.
We recommend you check directly with your destination's embassy or immigrations office to confirm you are eligible to travel.
Failure to comply with the above measures is a criminal offence and you could be fined. Please visit www.gov.uk/uk-border-control for detailed public health advice and requirements for entering the UK.
