TRAVEL FROM THE UK #COVID


Travelling abroad from the UK has become a real chore, but I know that after so many months of restrictions, many of you are itching to get away. Below is a simple list of things you must do to make your travels as smooth as possible:


Travel

1) Look up the entry requirements for the country you plan to visit to make sure you will be allowed entry. 🔍


2) Book your flights. 💺


3) Book a COVID test 72-48 hours (depending on the destination) before your flight. In the UK these cost around £100. 🦠


4) Complete any other pre-flight requirements the country has stipulated (you can find this online). ✅


5) Ensure you have a copy of your negative COVID test results (you must test negative to fly) in print or on a digital device that is fully charged; you’ll need to show this at check-in in the UK and upon arrival at your destination so you don’t want your battery to die before you get to do that. 📱


6) Go to the airport and fly to your destination with a mask on. 😷🛫


7) Enjoy your holiday! 🥳

9) Use this ➡️ gov.uk ⬅️ website to determine the categorisation of your destination and the required COVID tests you must take after you arrive in the uk.


10) Book a day 2 (and day 8 if required) COVID test. Click here for a list of government approved labs. On average, these tests cost around £150. 🔬


11) Fill in the passenger locator form with your details and the reference code you received from your arrival COVID test bookings. 🧾


12) Ensure you have a copy of your negative COVID test results and your completed passenger locator form in print or on a digital device that is fully charged. These will be checked both at check-in at the airport before departure and upon arrival into the UK. 📱


13) Go to the airport and fly back to England with a mask on. 😷🛬


14) Depending on where you are travelling from, you may be required to quarantine for up to 10 days after you arrive in the UK. 🏠
