Important information - regularly updated
As we all know Covid-19 has very much changed the way we are able to travel between countries as well as seeing the introduction of various rules during the pandemic. The rules and regulations in the UK may be very different to those from where you are travelling from. It is very important that you read this page and refer back to it regularly, as details are likely to change. We are unable to give individual advice regarding Covid-19 rules as they change so regularly but the below links will provide relevant information. Before you travel, you must be aware of government policies in place in the UK to control the Covid-19 pandemic. It is your responsibility to keep up to date with these regulations regularly.
People planning to travel to England should follow the guidance on entering the UK.
International arrivals from non-red list countries who are fully vaccinated will need to isolate at home and take a PCR test on or before day 2 following your arrival. You are only permitted to leave isolation if this test result is negative. If your test result is positive, you will need to isolate for 10 days. This is the law.
All advice is published on the government webpage www.gov.uk/coronavirus. You can find the UK government's guidance on entering the UK here.
