Testing requirements dropped for fully-vaccinated arrivals into the UK

From today, all testing requirements have been removed for eligible fully vaccinated arrivals, making international journeys cheaper and easier for passengers ahead of half term. 

  • Thanks to the success of our vaccine and booster rollout, the UK has been able to ease international travel measures and now have one of the freest flowing borders in the world.
  • From 04:00 am today, all testing requirements for eligible fully vaccinated arrivals have been removed, with only a simplified passenger locator form needed. Arrivals who do not qualify as fully vaccinated only need a pre-departure test and a PCR test on or before day two after they arrive in the UK, as well as completing a passenger locator form. 
  • These rule changes ahead of half term are good news for families, businesses and the travel sector - sending a clear message that Britain is open to the world.
