Will I need to quarantine/self-isolate upon arrival to United Kingdom?

From 8th of June, all arrivals into England from outside of the UK (excluding the Republic of Ireland) will need to follow the new rules in place for entering the UK because of coronavirus (COVID-19).

You will need to self-isolate if you have visited or made a transit stop in a country or territory that is not on the travel corridor list in the 14 days prior to your arrival into England. This applies to UK residents and visitors to the UK.

You may not have to self-isolate when you enter the UK, if you are travelling from one of the countries or territories listed. That is because these countries and territories are either:

  • covered by the travel corridor exemption
  • within the common travel area - Ireland, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man
  • British overseas territories

This applies to all travel to England, by train, ferry, coach, air or any other route.

You must also show proof of a completed passenger locator form at the UK border.

For further information and to check the rules for other areas of the UK, please visit the government website where all details can be found on quarantine and self isolation rules.
