The government has eased the self-isolation policy for travelers entering England and has introduced travel corridor exemptions.

Key Points:

  • As of July 10, those entering England from select countries may not have to self-isolate for 14 days on arrival.
  • Those traveling from the Common Travel Area (Channel Islands, Ireland and Isle of Man) and British Overseas Territories are also generally exempt from self-isolation.
  • Those transiting through countries not on the list will have to enter 14-day self-isolation if anyone on the flight disembarks or if passengers from the transit country embark on the same flight.
  • Travelers to the U.K., including U.K. residents (except those from Ireland, Channel Islands and the Isle of Man) must complete a passenger locator form before arrival. There may be other reasons this form will not need to be completed which can be found here.

Additional information: Travel restrictions for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are published by their respective devolved governments.
