Arriving from overseas

What you must do when you arrive in England from abroad depends on where you have been in the 10 days before you arrive – visit the government website from more information. 

All arrivals are required to undertake either one or two mandatory COVID-19 tests depending upon if you are returning from a red, amber or green COVID-19 country. Tests must be booked from a list of government-approved test providers at your own expense.

You should also book your place in a quarantine hotel (if required) before your book your flight to the UK. You may not be able to board a plane to the UK without confirmation of a quarantine hotel booking.

If you’ve been fully vaccinated in the USA or many European countries, you will not need to quarantine when you arrive in England or take a day 8 test. You still need to book and take a day 2 test. Find out more about the amber list rules for Europe and the USA.

This is in addition to the quarantine exemption for people who have been fully vaccinated under the UK vaccination programme.
