All passengers (aged 12+) travelling from non-red list countries are required to take a pre-departure test in the 48 hours before travelling to the UK. On arrival into the UK, all passengers (aged 5+) are required to take a RT PCR test on or before day 2. Passengers who are fully vaccinated under an eligible vaccination scheme must quarantine until receiving a negative result.
Unvaccinated passengers are required to take RT PCR tests on or before day 2 and on or after day 8 and must quarantine for 10 days. Test to Release remains an option to reduce the 10-day quarantine period.
Children aged 5 to 17 who are resident in the UK, or in a country with an approved proof of vaccination, are to be treated as ‘fully vaccinated’. This applies whether the child is vaccinated or not.
Children aged 5 to 17 who are resident in any country that is not on the approved proof of vaccination list must take travel tests and quarantine.
Children of ages four and under are exempt from testing.
If you are unsure on the classification of the country you’re arriving from, eligible vaccination schemes, or the test which you require, please consult the UK Government COVID-19 travel advice. Countries and territories can be moved between lists at short notice, so please monitor Gov.uk for information on which list your country is on.
Make sure that your chosen testing provider is on the UK Government’s approved provider list.
You must also fill in a Passenger Locator Form for travel to the UK. Your form must include your test booking reference number.
