Covid: All Remaining Travel Restrictions For Entry To UK To End This Week

14 March 2022

All the remaining Covid travel measures, such as tests for arrivals and Passenger Locator Forms, will end this week, the Transport Secretary has announced.

Grant Shapps has said that from 4am this Friday (March 18), anyone arriving in the UK will no longer need to comply with any of the previous rules.

It means the law on filling out passenger locator forms will be scrapped, as well as testing requirements for those entering the country. The changes apply to both vaccinated and unvaccinated people.

However, anyone travelling abroad from the UK will still have to comply with the coronavirus measures in their destination.

“These changes are possible due to our vaccine rollout and mean greater freedom in time for Easter,” Shapps tweeted.

The changes bring the UK one step closer to being free of Covid-19 legislation. Scotland is set to relax its final law on wearing face masks on March 21st.
