Returning to the UK
You must provide a negative Covid-19 taken from within 72 hours of arrival within the UK in order to enter.
A passenger locator form must be filled out before arriving in the UK.
In some circumstances, you must book and pay for at minimum a Day-2 Covid-19 test. For more information on Day-2 and Day-8 tests, in addition to the test-to-release scheme, please click here. For help finding a test provider, please visit here.
The UK may mandate you quarantine upon returning at either a residence of your choice or a quarantine hotel (if you are returning from a Red List country). For a full description of guidelines, please visit the UK border control webpage.
Rules for entering the UK are dictated by whether a country is listed as green, amber or red. For information on what these listings mean and which countries are in each category, see the UK foreign country list and information webpage.
