What are the international travel rules from amber list countries?

July 27, 2021 | COVID-19, News, Travel, UK Government

Since Monday 19th July the Covid restrictions have been lifted in the UK. As a result, the government is no longer recommending against travel to amber list countries.

The amber list rules only apply to people who are fully vaccinated under a UK vaccination programme. Being fully vaccinated means that you must have had your final dose at least 14 full days before you arrive in the UK.

Rules for fully vaccinated individuals

You must meet the following requirements:

  • Be fully vaccinated in the UK or under the UK vaccine programme overseas

participating or have participated in a formally approved clinical trial of a coronavirus vaccine in the UK

  • Ordinarily resident in the UK and under the age of 18 at the time you arrive

Before travelling to England from an amber list country you must take a Covid-19 test, book and pay for a day 2 Covid test to be taken after arrival in England and complete a passenger locator form. You will also need to show proof of your vaccination status. The current rules state that you do not need to quarantine unless you tested positive on the day 2 Covid test. 

Rules if not fully vaccinated

Before travelling to England from an amber list country you must take a Covid-19 test, book and pay for a day 2 Covid test to be taken after arrival in England and complete a passenger locator form. The current rules state that you must quarantine for at least 10 days.
