The UK’s travel testing rules are being simplified, and from 4am on the 11th February, there will no longer be any testing requirements in place for those travelling to the UK.
Fully vaccinated? Here’s what you need to know:
For now, those who have had two vaccines are considered fully vaccinated and can enter the United Kingdom without having to undergo any tests or quarantine period at all.
Not vaccinated? Here’s what you need to know:
If you don’t qualify as fully vaccinated, don’t worry: things will still be simpler than before. You won’t need to isolate, but you will still have to take a Day 2 arrivals PCR test. You’ll also need to complete a newly-simplified passenger locator form to show that you have had a negative COVID-19 test result taken within two days of travel.
Don’t forget, though - travel tests are still required for entry into many countries around the world, including UK holiday favourites such as France, Greece, Italy and Portugal.
