UK Travel Changes from 7 Jan 2022
Good news for any travellers from England
Grant Shapps has tweeted that fully vaccinated passengers and under 18s will no longer need to take a pre-departure test before returning to England if arriving after 04:00 GMT on Friday.
He says the same groups arriving in England will now only need to take a lateral flow test instead of a PCR test if they arrive after 04:00 GMT on Sunday.
The need to self-isolate before getting a negative result is also ending.
He says now Omicron is the dominant variant and is widespread in the UK, these measures are no longer proportionate.
By removing them the government is supporting the safe reopening of international travel, he says.
Scotland has now set the same requirements as England as in the above post.
