The information in this section deals with a fast-moving issue and should be read as correct at the time of publication.

The international travel ban ended in England on 17 May 2021 and has been replaced by a ‘traffic light’ system of restrictions. People entering England must adhere to different rules depending on whether they have come from a ‘green’, ‘amber’ or ‘red’ country.

The main restrictions are that, upon arrival, those entering the UK from a red country are required to undergo managed hotel quarantine for ten days, and those entering from an amber country must quarantine at home for ten days. Those who enter from a green country do not need to quarantine. All travellers are required to complete a passenger locator form and take Covid-19 tests both before and after arrival. Other restrictions and exemptions apply.

Passengers whose flights are cancelled may be entitled to a refund. If a flight is not cancelled, but a passenger could not take it due to Covid-19 travel restrictions, they should be offered a re-scheduled flight or a refund. The Government has published a Passenger Covid-19 charter, which sets out consumer rights, responsibilities, and reasonable expectations while Covid-19 travel restrictions continue.
