British travellers can now visit just 12 destinations without restrictions

English travellers are currently able to visit a select number of countries without facing a 14-day quarantine, under plans first announced in July by the Government.

  • Slovenia and Guadelope will be removed from the quarantine exemption list at 4am on Saturday September 19
  • Travellers returning from Singapore and Thailand will not have to quarantine if they arrive after 4am on Saturday September 19
  • Iceland is open to tourists, but all arrivals must pay to be tested twice for coronavirus and await the results in their hotel, or self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival. Children born in 2005 or later are exempt

If you return to the UK from a country that is not on the travel corridor list you must self-isolate. 

When you get home, you will need to self-isolate for 14 days. 

You must also show proof of a completed passenger locator form at the UK border. You may be refused permission to enter the UK (if you are not a British citizen), or fined if you do not provide your contact details or fail to self-isolate.

If you travel from an exempt country but have been in a country that is not exempt within the past 14 days, you will need to self-isolate for the remainder of the 14 days since you were in a non-exempt country. If you transit through a country that is not exempt you will be required to self-isolate for 14 days.

For example, if you arrive in the UK from a country that is exempt, but you travelled to the exempt country four days ago from a country that is not exempt, you will need to self-isolate for 10 days. If you’re travelling to the UK for less than 10 days you will need to self-isolate for the duration of your visit.
