Fully vaccinated travellers no longer have to take a PCR or lateral flow test before setting off for the UK. You must be able to prove that you are fully vaccinated by NHS app or by letter. All travellers - except children under five years old - may no longer have to take a PCR test two days after arrival. Instead, they'll be able to take a cheaper and simpler lateral flow test.
The government says you should book this test before you travel. You will also need to complete a passenger locator form.
If you are not fully vaccinated - and you're 18 or over - you still need to take a PCR or lateral flow/antigen test (not a free NHS test) within three days before returning to the UK.
You must also self-isolate at home for 10 days after arrival in the UK.
Test to Release will remain an option for unvaccinated passengers to England who want to shorten quarantine.
