How have travel corridors changed and who must quarantine?
Even with the new Covid-19 negative testing requirements introduced on Monday, passengers including British nationals must now still self-isolate for a period of 10 days on arrival.
Passengers arriving from many countries previously on the UK’s list of exempt travel corridors are no longer free from quarantine, following the decision over the weekend to suspend these exemptions until at least 15th February 2021. All passengers returning to the UK must provide adequate contact details and also provide their address where they will be isolated in the UK.
A small number of people entering the UK will be exempt from these new quarantine rules, which includes pilots, some seasonal agricultural workers and drivers of heavy goods vehicles.
The devolved governments of Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland have published their own quarantine rules, which differ slightly.
