New Border controls

The government has announced additional mandatory measures at the border, so that people will need to provide a negative coronavirus test before entry into the UK. This will help control the coronavirus as COVID-19 vaccines are rolled out at pace over the coming weeks.

  • Britain already has significant measures in place to prevent imported cases of Covid-19, but with new strains of the virus developing internationally – such as in Denmark and South Africa – we must take further precautions now.
  • From next week, people entering the UK from abroad will be required to present a negative coronavirus test taken up to 72 hours prior to departure. People will also still be required to self-isolate for ten days, regardless of their test result, as an additional layer of safety, if they are arriving from countries not on the Travel Corridor list.
  • This will provide a further line of defence, helping control the virus as Britain rolls out the vaccine at pace over the coming weeks.
