List of countries and territories from where you can travel to England and may not have to self-isolate.
Coronavirus regulations mean that you must self-isolate for 14 days if you arrive in the UK from a country outside the common travel area.
The government is satisfied that it is now safe to ease these measures in England and has introduced travel corridor exemptions for some countries and territories.
You may not have to self-isolate when you arrive in England, if you are travelling from one of the countries or territories listed below. That is because these countries or territories are:
- covered by the travel corridor exemption
- within the common travel area (Ireland, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man)
- British overseas territories
You will need to self-isolate if you visited or made a transit stop in a country that is not on the list in the 14 days before you arrive in England.
This applies to all travel to England, by train, ferry, coach, air or any other route.
A transit stop is a stop where passengers can get on or off. It can apply to coaches, ferries, trains or flights. Your ticket should show if a stop is a transit stop.
If your journey involves a transit stop in a country not on the list, you will need to self-isolate when you arrive in England if:
- new passengers get on
- you or other passengers get off the transport you are on and mix with other people, then get on again
You don’t need to self-isolate beyond normal timescales if, during your transit stop in a non-exempt country:
- no new passengers get on
- no-one on-board gets off and mixes with people outside
- passengers get off but do not get back on
Arrival in the UK
Before your arrival in the UK, you must complete a passenger locator form. You must present these details on your arrival in England. This applies to both visitors and UK residents. There are a small number of groups of people who are exempt.
Updates to the travel corridor list
We will keep the conditions in these countries and territories under review. If they worsen we will reintroduce self-isolation requirements.
Serbia was removed from this list with effect from 11 July 2020.
Therefore, if you arrived in England from Serbia on 10 July, and you did not visit or make a transit stop in another non-exempt country or territory within the previous 14 days, then you do not need to self-isolate. If you arrived in England from Serbia before 10 July or from 11 July onwards then you need to self-isolate as Serbia was not on this list.
