Before You Travel

Essential information to enter the UK & Scotland

UK & Scottish Government are taking steps to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

 

1) To protect your health and others’, everyone must complete an online Passenger Locator Form before arrival in the United Kingdom.

2) All inbound passengers travelling to the UK will be required to present a negative Covid-19 test, taken up to 72 hours prior to departure. This includes UK citizens and those transiting airside via a UK airport. A limited number of exceptions are set out on the gov.uk website

3) All arrivals to Scotland from outside the Common Travel Area must book and pay for managed isolation in quarantine hotels - A small number of arrivals will not be required to isolate, such as those involved in essential supply chains for goods coming into Scotland.

4) Arrivals into the UK are not permitted from "Red List" countries, unless a British or Irish national returning home, or you have residency rights in the UK. Those travelling from Red List countries must self isolate in a government-approved quarantine hotel

5) All arrivals must quarantine for at least ten days and will be tested twice for COVID-19 – once on day two and once on day eight after arrival. 

6) Passengers travelling internationally from England from Monday 8 March will now need to carry a new form which sets out that their trip is permitted under the stay at home restrictions.  

 

Failure to comply with the above measures is a criminal offence and you could be fined.
