Entry requirements to the UK
The UK authorities have introduced requirements for customers arriving in the country.
Please note that travel restrictions are subject to change on a short notice. As a traveller you are always responsible for ensuring that you fulfill the requirements of your destination and possible transit country. You can find the latest entry restrictions here.
- You are required to complete an online Passenger Locator Form (PLF) before travelling to the UK via this page. You can provide the information earliest 48 hours before your journey.
- Please take with you a print or a screenshot of the PLF confirmation document, that you receive via email once you have completed the online PLF-form. You will be required to show the print/screenshot to the airline agent at the gate and to the authorities upon arrival.
- You are required to hold a negative coronavirus test result taken earliest 3 days before arriving in the UK. This requirement does not apply to children under the age of 11. The coronavirus test requirement applies also if you are transiting via the UK to another country. You can find details on the accepted test types and details required in the certificate here.
If you are travelling to London, Manchester or Edinburgh (Scotland), you are required to, in addition to taking the coronavirus test 3 days before travelling, pre-purchase a post-arrival coronavirus PCR-test package from the UK government’s website and self-isolate for 10 days after you arrive in the UK. Information on possible work related exemptions to the pre-purchased test package due to your work can be found here. If you are exempted from pre-purchase test package due to your work, you must indicate this in your PLF. If you have visited a high-risk (red) country in the last 10 days, entry restrictions apply. You can read more information here. If you are arriving in the UK from a green country and you have not visited or transited in an amber listed (orange) or a red country during the last 10 days, you do not need to self-quarantine or take a day 8 test after arrival in the UK. However, you still need to pre-purchase a post-arrival test for day 2, in addition to having a negative pre-travel coronavirus test result and a completed PLF.
You can find the latest entry restrictions via the destination country's government website, or from the applicable Embassy or Consulate.
