Travel Safe with our COVID Safe Protocols

The UK government has announced that when travel resumes on the 17th May there will be a traffic light system in place with different requirements applying depending on whether the destination visited is categorised as ‘green’, ‘amber’ or ‘red’.

  • Green: arrivals you must take the test in the 3 days before you travel to England. You will also need book and pay for a day 2 COVID-19 test – to be taken after arrival in England and complete a passenger locator form
  • Amber:

    Before you travel to England

    Before you travel to England you must:

    You must do these things whether you are fully vaccinated or not.

    When you arrive in England

    If you are fully vaccinated

    After you arrive in England you must take a COVID-19 test on or before day 2.

    This applies if you’re fully vaccinated under either:

    • the UK vaccination programme
    • the UK vaccine programme overseas
    • an approved vaccination programme in Europe or the USA - not all are recognised in England

    Find out how to prove you are fully vaccinated, which European countries this applies to and approved vaccination programmes for Europe and the USA.

    It also applies if you are:

    • taking part in an approved COVID-19 vaccine trial in the UK or the USA
    • under 18 and resident in the UK, a UK Overseas Territory, the USA or one of the specified European countries

    If you will be in England for less than 2 days you still need to book and pay for a day 2 COVID-19 test. You only need to take the test if you are still in England on day 2.

    If you are not fully vaccinated

    If you do not qualify under the fully vaccinated rules, on arrival in England you must:

    • quarantine at home or in the place you are staying for 10 days
    • take a COVID-19 test on or before day 2 and on or after day 8

    Read about the fully vaccinated rules, quarantine and taking COVID-19 tests after arrival in England.

    If you are in England for less than 10 days, you need to quarantine for the time you are here. You need to book day 2 and day 8 travel tests. You only need to take the tests if you are still in England.

  • Red: arrivals will be subject to restrictions currently in place for ‘red list’ countries which include a 10-day stay in a managed quarantine hotel, pre-departure testing and PCR testing on day 2 and 8

The UK government traffic light system is applicable only for your return to England and each country will also have its own entry requirements. Make sure you have familiarised yourself with these requirements before you travel at the FCDO website or speak to the Wendy Wu Team for more details.
