Travelling to the UK for less than 14 days?

If you are travelling from a non-exempt country you will be required to self-isolate upon your arrival to the UK for a period of 14 days.

This is because it may take up to 14 days for any coronavirus symptoms to appear. However, what happens if you travelling to the UK for less than 14 days?

You will only be expected to self-isolate for the length of your stay, and will then be able to continue your trip.

If you are travelling from a country listed as a ‘travel corridor,’ you will not be required to self-isolate.

For an updated list of countries considered non-exempt and those listed as a travel corridor, please refer to the link below:

If you do not self-isolate you may receive a penalty fee of £1000.
