COVID 19: UK Issues New Travel Rules Effective June 8
The United Kingdom has issued new rules for travelers entering or returning to the country on or after Monday, June 8, 2020.
Resident and Visitor Guidelines
Returning residents or visitors traveling to the UK on or after June 8 will be required to:
- Self-isolate for the first 14 days upon arrival in the UK, except in very limited situations
- Complete a Public Health Passenger Locator Form
This requirement will apply to British citizens, residents of the UK, and international visitors entering for business or tourism. Travelers are encouraged to check the latest public health advice on coronavirus before travel or upon arrival in the UK.
Individuals traveling to the UK from the Common Travel Area (the Republic of Ireland, Channel Islands and the Isle of Man) are exempt if they have been present in the Common Travel Area for 14 days prior to entering the UK. The full guidance on exemptions is available here.
Other Key Considerations
- Failure to self-isolate can result in a fine of up to £1000 and failure to provide accurate contact information or keep contact information updated during self-isolation, may result in a fine of up to £3,200.
- Additional information regarding regulations for self-isolation can be found here.
- This structure will be reviewed by the British Government every three weeks and may be withdrawn if the COVID-19 situation improves.
