COVID-19: UK Guidance for International Travellers

A requirement for new UK arrivals to provide their journey and contact details before they travel will be introduced on 8 June as part of new travel measures designed to limit the risk of coronavirus transmission.

Information as of Wednesday 3 June 2020 at 12pm UK

The UK Government has published its roadmap for how and when the UK may approach easing lockdown measures.

Coronavirus UK Travel Restrictions

From the 8 June new rules will come into effect for travellers entering the UK; the new measures are designed to limit the risk of coronavirus transmission. Travellers will have to provide their journey and contact details before they travel via an online form. If international travellers are unable to demonstrate where they will self-isolate for 14 days once in the UK or refuse to complete the form they could face a fine and may not be allowed to enter (unless they are either British or a UK resident). 

The measures will apply to UK residents returning from non-exempt destinations as well as foreign visitors.

Exemptions

Some exemptions to these measures will allow for continued security of supply into the UK and to avoid impeding work which supports national security, critical infrastructure or the UK's international obligations.

It is understood that travel within the Common Travel Area (the UK, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and the Republic of Ireland) will be exempt from these measures.
