All COVID-19 travel restrictions will be lifted at 4 a.m. on Friday, March 18, including the passenger locator form (PLF) for arrivals into the UK and all tests for passengers who do not qualify as vaccinated. As a result of this change, unvaccinated passengers will no longer be required to take a pre-departure test and a day 2 post-arrival test.
To protect public health, the UK government will keep a variety of contingency measures on hand, allowing it to take swift and proportionate action to prevent any future harmful variants of COVID-19 from entering the UK if necessary.
Given the high personal, economic, and international costs of border measures, the government's default approach in the future will be to use the least stringent measures, if appropriate, to minimise the impact on travel as much as possible, and contingency measures will be implemented only in extreme circumstances.
