The new coronavirus variants have resulted in tighter restrictions across the United Kingdom. This article will provide a closer look at this area and the newest restrictions in place.
Currently, travel from certain countries to the United Kingdom is banned, and a mandatory hotel quarantine is required for returning residents. International passengers arriving to the United Kingdom are required to present a negative COVID-19 test result not older than 72 hours upon entry and self-isolate for 10 days. It is also mandatory to perform two follow-up COVID-19 tests during the isolation period.
Test to Release Scheme is available for travelers from non-banned countries to England. Passengers can shorten the 10-day self-isolation period by paying for a private follow-up test taken five days after arrival at the earliest.
