Coronavirus update

Vaccination Update
As at 7th February, a total of 101,064,758 doses of a coronavirus vaccine had been administered in the UK, with 52,447,403 people receiving a first dose (91.2% of the population aged 12 and over) and 48,617,355 people receiving both doses (84.5%). A total of 37,586,043 people had now received a booster jab (65.4%).

Travel To UK – Restrictions Removed From 11th February
From 04:00 GMT on 11th February, fully vaccinated travellers (who have had two doses) and under-18s will no longer need to take any Covid tests either before returning to or following arrival in the UK.

Travellers who are not fully vaccinated will no longer have to self-isolate on arrival, or take a test on day eight. However, they will still have to show proof of a negative Covid test taken two days before they travel, and they must still take a post-arrival PCR test.

All passengers will still need to fill in a passenger locator form which will be simplified, confirming their vaccination status, travel history and contact details, and people will have an extra day to fill it out before travelling.

Foreign Travel
The entry requirements of foreign countries you may be planning to visit will not necessarily replicate those of the UK and can change quickly. Up to date travel advice can be checked via the Foreign Office website which can be found here.
