- from 4am on 11 February all testing requirements removed for eligible fully vaccinated arrivals and only a simplified passenger locator form needed, ahead of half term
- arrivals who do not qualify as fully vaccinated will only need to take a pre-departure test and a PCR test on or before day 2 after they arrive in the UK
- changes come as children aged 12 to 15 in England can now prove their vaccination status or proof of prior infection for outbound travel with the digital NHS COVID Pass
Major changes to the UK’s coronavirus (COVID-19) travel rules have come into force today (4 am, 11 February 2022). This will make international journeys cheaper and easier for passengers ahead of the half term.
The relaxation in requirements is thanks to the success of the UK’s vaccine and booster rollout. It means that eligible fully vaccinated travellers arriving in the UK no longer need to take any COVID-19 tests – resulting in the UK having one of the most free-flowing borders and open societies in Europe.
Eligible fully vaccinated travellers are, therefore, only required to fill out a simplified passenger locator form, confirming their vaccination status, travel history and contact details.
At the moment of this article publishing, we do not found any source that says the UK requires to show proof of a Covid booster to enter the UK. However, this is likely to change in near future, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson hinting this would be the next change during a Downing Street press conference in early January 2022.
‘It’s already the case that to travel to some countries you need a booster to be considered fully vaccinated,’ he said, adding: ‘It’s likely that within weeks this will increasingly become the norm.’
The NHS app was updated to include a third booster jab for travel from Friday 19 November 2021 in England and Monday 29 November 2021 in Wales.
However, we (anuradhabernard.com) urge people to check with UK borer control before verifying this information to understand whether they need booster jab or not and other regulations.
