Mandatory COVID 19 test for ALL UK Arrivals

Mandatory negative COVID 19 test for ALL UK Arrivals  

  1. all international arrivals to England, including UK nationals, required to present a negative COVID-19 test taken up to 72 hours prior to departure 

  2. all passengers arriving from countries not on the government’s travel corridor list will still be required to self-isolate for 10 days, regardless of test result 

  3. passengers will still be required to fill in a passenger locator form and be subject to national lockdown restrictions 

  4. Exemption.  There will be a limited number of exemptions, including for hauliers, children under 11, crews and for those who travelling from countries without the infrastructure available to deliver the tests. Further exemptions will be set out on GOV.UK. 

Passengers arriving into England with a negative result prior to departure from a country not on the travel corridor list will still have the option to reduce the self-isolation period from 10 to as little as 5 days by paying for a test through the Test to Release scheme. The scheme requires a test to be taken on or after the fifth full day since leaving a country not on the travel corridor list. 

Passengers will be required to show their negative test result before boarding, and transport operators will deny boarding if necessary. On arrival back into the UK, Border Force will check passengers test results through the current spot check regime, to ensure that individuals are compliant with the new rules, and passengers will be subject to an immediate fine of £500.
