Returning home from abroad
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) currently advises against all but essential travel. There are some countries exempt from this advice.
This list is constantly being monitored so please check regularly.
If you are travelling from a country that is not on the list, you MUST isolate for a full 14 days on your return to the UK. This includes your whole travelling party both adults and children.
You will be required to provide your contact details at the UK airport or UK port and self-isolate for 14 days. You may be fined if you refuse to provide your contact details, or if you do not self-isolate.
You will also be required to self-isolate if you made a ‘transit stop’ in any country not on the exempt list.
Passenger locator form
Everyone arriving in the UK (including residents) MUST complete a passenger locator form.
If you experience any coronavirus symptoms you must NOT travel. If symptoms begin while travelling, please let the crew or driver know and you will be advised what to do next.
It is recommended that people do not share cars with anyone outside of their household. If you must car share, try to:
- only share with the same people each time
- open windows
- maximise distance between people in the vehicle, travel with one in the front and one in the back, if possible
- clean your car between journeys, specifically contact points such as door handles and seatbelts
- wear a face covering at all times
