All Covid 19 travel restrictions removed in the UK

15/03/2022

More good news for holiday makers looking forward to an Easter break, the government has announced that from 4am on Friday 18 March it will be scrapping all Covid-19 travel restrictions in the UK.  This means no more testing before or after arrival and no more passenger locator forms, regardless of your vaccination status!

This announcement gives everyone, including those that are not fully vaccinated, complete freedom to travel into the UK without any onerous forms or testing requirements and signals a return to normality for holidays and travel.

Full details on entry requirements for the UK can be found here:

Check the rules for your destination

Of course, you do still need to check entry requirements for the country you wish to travel to. Although the UK is leading the way in reducing restrictions many other countries are starting to relax their rules, particularly if you are fully vaccinated.

A good place to start is the travel advice by country from the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO).
