United Kingdom Covid19 Forms & Information

Passengers travelling to the UK are kindly asked to fill in the  passenger locator form (PLF). A passenger under the age of 18 may be included on an adult's PLF.

As from the 7th December 4am GMT, all passengers aged 12 years and over must take a PCR or LFD COVID-19 test within 2 days before they travel to England from abroad. As from the 7th January 4am GMT, this requirement shall no longer apply to fully vaccinated passengers.

Fully vaccinated passengers and passengers under the age of 18 are required to provide evidence of a booking for a Day 2 COVID 19 test after arrival in the UK. Passengers aged 4 and under are exempt from the Day 2 test. As from the 30th November 4am, only PCR tests shall be accepted. As from the 7th January 2022 4am GMT, fully vaccinated passengers may book a LFD test as their Day 2 test if they arrive in England after 4am on the 9th January 2022 and shall not be required to self-isolate until their test results are out.

Non-vaccinated passengers aged 18+ are required to present a negative PCR or antigen test taken within 3 days before departure and show evidence of booking for Day 2 and Day 8 COVID 19 test after arrival in the UK. A 10-day quarantine is applicable but passengers may avail themselves of the Test to Release scheme. As from the 30th November 4am, only PCR tests shall be accepted for Day 2 and Day 8 tests.

More details are available here. Where exemptions apply, these need to be backed up by the appropriate evidence. The above applies unless one has been to a red list country in the 10 days prior to their arrival in the UK. 

Passengers not complying with the above requirements will regretfully be denied boarding.

Due to rapidly evolving travel restrictions, passengers are kindly requested to frequently consult official information.
