On 4th July 2020 the UK government lifted restrictions on non-essential travel to certain countries. These countries have been assessed as not presenting an unacceptably high risk to British people travelling abroad.
These countries are:
Please be aware that no travel is risk-free. Please ensure you’ve read the Stansted Airport Coronavirus travel guidelines and the travel advice for your destination, and be aware that disruption and changes are still possible.
While the countries listed above are deemed to not be an unnecessarily high risk for British travellers, each country will have different rules about travelling. Please refer to the UK Government travel advice for information on what will be required when you arrive at specific countries.
“Travel corridors” are being introduced from 10th July 2020. If you are returning to England from one of the “travel corridor” countries and you have not visited or stopped in any other country or territory in the preceding 14 days, you will not be required to self-isolate when you return.
(This list may be added to over the coming days following further discussions between the UK and international partners.)
However, if you travel to any countries outside of the travel corridor, you will be required to self-isolate for 14 days on your return to England. If you have travelled back via a country on the travel corridors list, the time spent here counts towards your 14 days of self-isolation.
Due to COVID-19, certain countries now require any passengers to fill in a form known as the Passenger Locator Form, with their travel and contact details. This form needs to be completed before arrival, with some countries needing it to be completed further in advance. Please check the UK Government travel advice for the country you are travelling to to see if you need to fill in the form and for more information.
Before your arrival back into the UK, you will need to complete a passenger locator form. This can be completed 48 hours before your arrival back in the UK. You will need to show a copy of your form when you arrive at the UK border, either by printing it or showing it on a device. This information will be used by the government to contact you if someone you travelled with develops COVID-19 symptoms.
If you believe you have COVID-19 symptoms, do not travel. If you develop symptoms while travelling, please inform airport or cabin staff.
These rules only apply to arrivals in England. Information for travel into Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will be published by the Devolved Administrations.
