  • United Kingdom emergency measures introduced at the border to be in place for at least one month in order to protect the UK against new variantsall international arrivals to the UK from any country (including British and Irish Nationals) must now take a pre-departure test and self-isolate for 10 dayspassengers must continue to fill in a Passenger Locator Form and have a negative test before travelling to the UK or could face a £500 fine for each

    The government has today (15 January 2021) announced emergency border measures to prevent the spread of concerning new variants of coronavirus (COVID-19) into the UK, such as those first identified in Brazil and South America, and to protect us against the risk of as yet unidentified new strains.

    From Monday 18 January at 4am, all travel corridors with the UK will be suspended – meaning that all international arrivals who have departed from or transited through any country outside the Common Travel Area in the previous 10 days will be required to both take a pre-departure test, and self-isolate immediately for 10 days on arrival. This includes British and Irish nationals.

    This urgent action is in response to increasing concern over the transmissibility and virulence of new strains evolving internationally. It will also ensure that the government is able to protect the progress being made on the country’s vaccination programme.

    This move will be supported by increased enforcement, both at the border and across the UK, with Border Force increasing the number of spot checks on passengers that have entered the country.

    International travel corridors have been in place since July 2020 for countries and territories where critical analysis suggests the risk of COVID-19 can be mitigated.

    However, the level of risk associated with the emergence of new variants globally has now increased, requiring more stringent measures to block all potential avenues through which new strains of the virus could enter the UK while we consider how best to respond.

    The new measures will be reviewed on Monday 15 February – while further work takes place to manage the threat posed by coronavirus variants.

  • United Kingdom European nations have begun to apply travel bans with the UK after it reported a more infectious and “out of control” coronavirus variant.

    Ireland, Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands and Belgium are all halting flights and travel. The measures vary and are initially generally short-term.

    An EU meeting will be held on Monday morning to discuss a more co-ordinated response.

    The new variant has spread quickly in London and south-east England.

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Saturday introduced a new tier four level of restrictions for those areas, scrapping a planned relaxation of rules over the Christmas period for millions of people.

    Within hours of the UK announcement on Saturday, the Netherlands said it would ban all passenger flights from the UK from 06:00 (05:00 GMT) on Sunday until 1 January.

    Pending “greater clarity” on the situation in the UK, the Dutch government said that further “risk of the new virus strain being introduced to the Netherlands should be minimised as much as possible”.

    Belgium is suspending flights and train arrivals from the UK from midnight on Sunday. Prime Minister Alexander De Croo told Belgian television channel VRT the ban would be in place for at least 24 hours as a “precautionary measure”, adding “we will see later if we need additional measures”.

    Ireland, the government announced that flights arriving from the UK would be banned for 48 hours at least from midnight, and “in the interests of public health, people in Britain, regardless of nationality, should not travel to Ireland, by air or sea”.

    Ferry crossings for freight would continue.

    In Germany, an order from the ministry of transport said planes from the UK would not be allowed to land after midnight on Sunday, although cargo would be an exception. Health Minister Jens Spahn said the UK variant had not yet been detected in Germany.

    France has suspended all travel links including freight lorries with the UK for 48 hours from midnight. It said the period should be used to provide a co-ordinated European response. Thousands of lorries move between the countries every day. The UK Cabinet Office is to meet on Monday to assess the impact on trade.

    In response to France’s ban, Eurotunnel has said it will suspend access to its Folkestone terminal from 22:00 GMT for traffic heading to Calais. People booked to travel on Monday can get a refund. Trains will still run from Calais to Folkestone.

    Austria is also planning a ban on flights from the UK, with details currently being worked out, local media reported.

    Bulgaria has suspended flights to and from the UK from midnight but, unlike the short-term measures in many other nations, its ban lasts until 31 January.

    Turkey has temporarily banned all flights from the UK.

    A European Council meeting will be held at 10:00 GMT on Monday on co-ordinating EU actions.

  • United Kingdom LONDON — Alarmed by a fast-spreading variant of the coronavirus, Prime Minister Boris Johnson abruptly reversed course on Saturday and imposed a wholesale lockdown on London and most of England’s southeast, banning Christmas-season gatherings beyond individual households.

    The decision, which Mr. Johnson announced after an emergency meeting of his cabinet, came after the government got new evidence of a variant first detected several weeks ago in Southeast England, which the prime minister asserted was as much as 70 percent more transmissible than previous versions.

    The new measures, which take effect on Sunday, are designed, in effect, to cut off the capital and its surrounding counties from the rest of England. They are the most severe measures the British government has taken since it imposed a lockdown on the country back in March, and reflect a fear that the new variant could supercharge the transmission of the virus as winter takes hold.

    “When the virus changes its method of attack, we must change our method of defense,” a somber Mr. Johnson said on Saturday. “We have to act on information as we have it, because this is now spreading very fast.”

    Viral mutations are not uncommon, and British officials said this variant had been detected in a handful of other countries, without naming them. But the government’s medical experts expressed alarm about its apparent infectiousness, noting that it now accounts for more than 60 percent of the new infections reported in London.

  • United Kingdom London will return to a strict lockdown this week, after coronavirus cases soared in the British capital, UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock said Monday.

    Hancock said London will be moved from England’s Tier 2 “high alert” local restrictions to the “very high” Tier 3 on Wednesday morning at 12:00 a.m., along with nearby areas in south and west Essex, and south Hertfordshire.
    Under the highest restriction level, all hospitality venues including pubs, cafes and restaurants will close except for takeout and delivery.
    People should avoid traveling outside their area and reduce the number of journeys they make wherever possible.
    “Over the last three weeks we’ve seen very sharp exponential rises in the virus across London, Kent, parts of Essex and Hertfordshire,” said the health secretary.

  • United Kingdom The government has reduced the period of quarantine required for travelers entering the U.K. Since the U.K. reopened travel in July, it’s implemented a system of a 14-day quarantine period for anyone entering from a high-risk destination — known as a travel corridor.

    However, on Friday, the government announced that the quarantine period will be reduced from 14 days to 10 days. The new self-isolation period applies to all four nations of the United Kingdom: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. (It’s worth noting that the 10-day quarantine period already applies to Wales.)

    As of Monday, December 14 at 12:01 a.m., the new, reduced quarantine period takes effect. Not only does the reduced quarantine period apply to travelers entering the country from non-travel corridor countries, but it also applies to those who have been in contact with someone with a confirmed case.

  • United Kingdom It has been announced that as of December 15, 2020, international travelers arriving into England from “high-risk” areas will have a new option to reduce their mandatory 14-day quarantine. With this new program:

    Travelers will instead be able to self-quarantine for five days
    At that point they can get a coronavirus test from a private provider, and if they test negative they can be released from their self-quarantine
    Since it usually takes 24-48 hours to get test results, at a minimum people are still looking at self-quarantining for six to seven days.

    The announcement came from Grant Shapps, the UK’s Secretary of State for Transport.

You need to self-isolate in the place you’re staying for the first 14 days after you arrive, unless you’ve only visited an exempt country, territory or region.

  • United Kingdom Airlines have canceled flights and called for additional government support after the UK announced plans to enter a second lockdown for at least a month after rising cases of COVID-19.

    The new restrictions, which come into force on Thursday Nov. 5, mean that all UK residents are banned from non-essential international travel.

    Although initially planned for one month, ministers have hinted that the restrictions could be extended if the spread of coronavirus is not brought under control.

    “People cannot travel internationally or within the UK, unless for work, education or other legally permitted exemptions,” British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said.

    “Overnight stays away from primary residences will not be allowed, except for specific exceptions including for work. Inbound international travel will continue to be governed by the travel corridor approach, and those currently on a domestic holiday will be allowed to finish their holidays, but are still subject to the requirements in England not to go out without a reasonable excuse.”

    Low-cost carrier easyJet has outlined plans to review its schedule in the next month, with CEO Johan Lundgren saying the government’s “sudden announcement” means it will “operate its planned schedule until Thursday and will be reviewing its flying program over the lockdown period.”

    “It is likely that much of the UK touching schedule will be canceled during lockdown with our planned flying set to resume in early December,” Lundgren added.

    Fellow LCC Ryanair has hit out at European governments’ handling of the COVID-19 crisis, after the first set of restrictions contributed to a €197 million ($229 million) loss for the six months to September as passenger numbers fell by 80% to 17 million.

    “The group expects to carry approximately 38 million passengers in FY21 (full-year 2021), although this guidance could be further revised downwards if EU governments continue to mismanage air travel and impose more uncoordinated travel restrictions or lockdowns this winter.”

    Meanwhile, Jet2 said it would be continuing to operate its planned schedule until Nov. 4 and would still accept bookings.

    “Following the UK government announcement about additional restrictions in England, we are working with the government to obtain much-needed clarity about what it means for those wishing to holiday overseas,” the airline said.

    TUI has announced that “holidays departing from airports in England from 5th November to 2nd December 2020 are unable to go ahead.”

    UK Travel Restrictions: What You Need TO Know Before Going

    The UK – four countries in one bottle: monarchical England with a lot of attractions, mountains, and blue lakes of Scotland, the land of medieval castles in Wales, and cozy villages of Northern Ireland.

    A land of rains, pipes, and fox hunting, the UK is constantly gaining global attention. Either Lord of the Dance will come on tour, or Catherine Zeta-Jones and Sean Connery will shine in another Hollywood fairy tale. And even though it is still difficult to obtain a British visa, and travel to foggy Albion promises to result in a tidy sum, the tourist flow to the country does not dry up – we all want to stand at the threshold of the English monarchy, delve into the rules of pub etiquette, pick up a kilt for the cold autumn and recite “To be or not to be?” directly in the homeland of Shakespeare.

    In addition, the UK has medieval castles and Gothic cathedrals, the tranquil beauty and serenity of rural landscapes, the recklessness and frenzy of evening London, granite of science in the best language schools, shopping in expensive prestigious boutiques and rummaging through the junk at flea markets. In short, a great variety.

    Let’s take a look at what it takes to properly enter the United Kingdom.

    General rules for entering the UK

    Upon arrival at the UK airport, you will have your passport or other identification checked to ensure that you are allowed to enter the country. Your documents must be valid throughout your visit to England. Before leaving for the UK, check the documents you will need to enter the UK.

    You may be asked at the border to confirm your relationship with the children you are traveling with if border control doubts that you are the parent of the child. For example, you have a different last name with your child.

    You can present:

    • a certificate of birth or adoption,
    • a marriage or divorce certificate (if your child has a different surname),
    • a consent from the parent of the child, giving him the right to travel with you. The letter must contain the contacts of the parents.

    Your carrier (for example, an airline) will check your passport and other travel documents and then send information about you to customs. You can ask to take a look at this information.

    Your passport is subject to verification, so keep it ready. Remove the cover of your passport before showing it. If you are wearing dark glasses, take them off. If you go through control with your family, then stick together.

    If you are not from the EEA or Switzerland, your carrier will give you a “landing page”. Please fill it out before going through border control. This will save you time. Passport, as well as the “landing page” will be checked at the control.

    Passing through British customs

    UK entry regulations require you to cooperate if you are stopped at customs and asked about your baggage. If you broke the rules, then any of your things, as well as what you are transporting it in, can be confiscated.

    It is prohibited to import weapons, ammunition, drugs, pornography, and poisons into the UK. Special permits are required for items of cultural or historical value, drugs containing drugs, plants, wild birds, and animals.

    Products made from meat and milk are a travel ban: even a box of chocolates is confiscated. As an exception, you can import baby food or dietary food for people with various diseases, but its weight should not exceed 2 kg.

    Those who travel to the UK with pets will have to prepare an international veterinary certificate and a special license, as well as tune in to a long quarantine. Pets that meet the PETS program are admitted to the country without delay. Export restrictions and prohibitions are the same as for import.

    Tax free

    Non-EU tourists staying in the UK for less than 3 months a year can take advantage of the Tax free system. When making retail purchases in participating stores, you can get up to 20% VAT refund. Global Blue prepares a refund for amounts from 30 GBP, Tax Free Worldwide – from amounts of 50 GBP per check. In the store, you will need to fill out a special form, keep the receipt and the integrity of the packaging, present the goods and documents at customs (the employee will put a stamp), and then at the Cash Refund point. VAT can be returned in cash at Heathrow Airport or by wire transfer to a bank card.

    What questions are asked at the UK border?

    If you have already received a UK visa and packed your suitcases, then it’s time to think about the following topic: the rules for entering the UK. Before travel, be sure to familiarize yourself with the information on entering the United Kingdom, at least in general terms, in order to feel more confident. As a rule, a tourist thinks about what questions he may be asked when crossing the English border, how to behave, how long the process takes, whether medical insurance is required, and what can and cannot be brought into the country.

    So, according to the rules of entry into England, upon arrival, all tourists are given a small migration card in English (UK Border Agency Landing Card). There you need to indicate some of your personal information, including the address where you plan to stay in the UK. You will have to fill them right on the spot; the questions are simple, so there will be no difficulties at this stage. You need to be prepared for the fact that you will have to stand in a rather big queue since airports are often very busy.

    UK Border Crossing Documents

    Some documents are required when entering the UK, but there are not many of them. The most important are papers confirming the purpose of your visit to the country. This can be an invitation from relatives you are going to visit, or from a company where you are traveling on business. If the purpose of the travel is for tourism purposes only, you should bring your hotel booking confirmation. You can show it if the officer asks where you plan to stay.

    In each individual situation, it is worth taking additional documents with you to cross the English border. If, for example, you got married and changed your last name, and the old one is indicated on your visa, take a marriage registration certificate to prevent unnecessary questions. If you are traveling with a child and you have different surnames, you should take your birth certificate with you; if you are not his parent, then you must have documents confirming your right to accompany him during his travel to Britain; these papers will definitely be asked.

    Traveling to the UK may be a dream of many people, but the current situation in the world can greatly prevent from visiting the country.

    The situation with the spread of the new coronavirus Covid-19 infection in the UK remains tense. The country is among the states with an unfavorable course of the disease. The success of the British healthcare system looks especially weak in comparison with some other European countries. On the first day of autumn, more than 334 thousand cases of Covid-19 were recorded in the UK. At the same time, more than 41 thousand people have already died. The daily increase in cases is also not encouraging – 1715 people as of August 31.

    Against this background, the country‘s cabinet of ministers has repeatedly come under serious public criticism. Many experts have accused the government of being unprepared for the pandemic and delaying the adoption of restrictive measures. Fuel to the fire was added by the fact that the head of the British government Boris Johnson himself fell ill with the coronavirus Covid-19, temporarily moving away from the government.

    A nationwide quarantine was announced, when local hospitals were already unable to cope with the large flow of sick citizens. At the same time, the British authorities, unlike other European countries, did not close their borders and introduce a mandatory 14 days quarantine requirement for arriving guests with need to self isolate. However, it was difficult to obtain a visa for travel. The fact is that almost all British visa centers abroad were not working.

    And yet, the restrictive measures introduced inside the country gave the first positive results, the number of cases decreased. Since May 13, the UK has begun to ease domestic quarantine and return to normal life. However, repeated outbreaks of the disease are forcing the British government to return to separate prohibitive measures.

    Rules for entering the UK under quarantine restrictions

    The difficult epidemiological situation forced the British Cabinet to impose restrictions on entry into the country. Obviously, they were belated, given that the state did not close its external borders.

    From 8 June, all foreigners entering the UK must:

    • fill out a special form, where you need to indicate contact information and place of residence, and email address;
    • self isolate for 14 days.

    You can get to the place of quarantine by public transport, but subject to the mask regime and social distancing. For violation of these rules, you could face a fine, in extreme cases – expulsion from the country.

    Exceptions to the rules

    The actions of the British authorities are well suited to the Soviet slogan during the New Economic Policy: “One step forward, two steps back”. By adopting travel restrictions, Boris Johnson’s cabinet also adopted an extensive list of exceptions to them. In particular, the 14 days self isolate period is not required to go among:

    • diplomats and state representatives of the EU countries;
    • transiting passengers;
    • train carriages, ships, and aircraft;
    • medical tourists;
    • scientists;
    • specialists of the oil, gas, and nuclear industries.

    A complete list of all exceptions can be found on the British Embassy Information Portal.

    UK and EU

    Having made a decision to withdraw from the common European space, Great Britain is forced to build new political relations with the European Union. Despite the fact that individual European countries were in no hurry to let English tourists into their territory without self isolating for 14 days, on July 10 the British government decided not to extend this rule to guests from European countries.

    UK and the world

    Since mid-July, the British authorities have also begun to exempt visitors from countries belonging to the so-called “green zone” from the mandatory 14-day self-isolation. Today this list, in addition to European countries, includes about 30 more states. A complete list of it is published on a special website.

    Charter flights

    Due to the closure of external borders by most countries in the world, the UK has provided its citizens with the opportunity to return home by charters. Persons who have a residence permit were also able to use them.

    When can quarantine be violated?

    The British authorities admit cases of violation of the mandatory quarantine. It can be done:

    •   during the travel from the airport to the place of self isolate;
    •    in an emergency when something threatens your life;
    •    if you need to go to the store if the other way to deliver the goods failed;
    •    to travel to hospitals by ambulance.

    Covid-19 and political decisions

    The Prime Minister of Great Britain said that the new travel restrictions that the government is introducing due to the increase in the incidence of Covid-19 may be in effect for another six months.

    British Prime Minister Boris Johnson spoke in Parliament about the introduction of new quarantine restrictions in England. In the evening he repeated the main points of his speech in a television address to the nation.

    New measures in England:

    • Pubs and restaurants will close at ten o’clock sharp;
    • Mandatory service by waiters, ordering from the bar is prohibited everywhere;
    • If possible, citizens should work from home.

    Other parts of the UK – Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland – determine their own quarantine measures.

    “I am sorry that this will affect a large part of the business, but we must act,” the prime minister said. Thus, in England, where it is no longer possible to gather in groups of more than six people, the restrictions will increase, however, amid complaints from small businesses about serious losses due to quarantine, the government will not take more stringent measures.

    Johnson noted that these measures could remain in effect for about six months. “This virus has become a phenomenon in our lives. And I must tell the members of parliament and the whole country that our fight against it will continue,” the Prime Minister said.

    In recent weeks, the number of cases of Covid-19 in Britain has risen sharply. Scientific and medical advisers to the government warned that if the disease spreads at the same rate as now, the country could become sick up to 50 thousand people a day.

    An infectious disease professor at the University of Liverpool said these measures would not be enough. He speaks of a “serious concern” in the scientific community as the infection rate among people under 50 is growing.

    Tough measures in Scotland

    Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced on Tuesday that the country would temporarily claim travel ban.

    The measure of self isolation has already been introduced for more than 1.7 million people in Glasgow and some of its suburbs. Now, according to Sturgeon, this will apply to the entire country.

    In addition, Scotland, following England, will ban pubs and restaurants after 10 pm.

    Thus, Scotland has stricter quarantine measures than England, where it is still allowed to visit, albeit with greater restrictions.

    Since Monday, the “rule of six” has been in effect in England: people who do not live under one roof can gather (even at home) in an amount of no more than six people.

    “The reason we took these steps is because we know these restrictions are holding back the spread of the virus in the west of Scotland.”

    Do the restrictions work?

    Restrictions are introduced, but as it turned out, not everyone understands them. And it’s not even the folly of people, but the system itself with different levels and exceptions.

    Liverpool people have no time for fun. There are already more COVID patients in hospitals in the city than at the peak of the first wave. Restrictions of the third, that is, the highest level of self isolating were introduced here recently.

    Even by introducing seemingly tough restrictions, the government is trying to inflict minimal damage on business. As a result, the quarantine is very special, with numerous exceptions.

    The three-tier system of restrictions is so complex that even police chiefs do not understand the rules, writes the Daily Mail. The confusion did not stop officers from fining four students a record £ 40,000 for hosting an illegal party.

    But hardly anyone can punish the inhabitants of the village of States. The river divides the village into two parts. Each belongs to different municipalities. And they have different rules.

    London is one of the regions where quarantine may be tightened in the near future. In the meantime, there are second-level restrictions: residents are forbidden to gather in groups of more than six people and need to self isolate.

    Conclusion

    Due to the coronavirus, the United Kingdom has become disunited. The British government controls the situation only in England. Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland decide for themselves, what to do. If you are going to travel to the UK, you need to know the basic rules for entering the country so as not to waste extra time when going through airport security. These rules differ depending on the type of visa and also the country from which you are coming. As for Covid-19, further plans for the 14-day self isolate and the establishment of “air bridges” are expected to be announced within the nearest time. You should see for yourself, whether a self isolation requirement applies to you, definitely see more information on how this requirement will affect your plans to visit the UK.
