Government eases quarantine rules in England
From Saturday, 4th July, the FCO's warning against all but essential international travel will be lifted for some countries. From 10th July, those returning to England from certain countries will not need to self-isolate.
All passengers, except a small list of exemptions, will still have to provide contact information upon arrival into England. Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland will set out their own exemptions.
You will have to comply with coronavirus requirements in the country you travel to. This may include self-isolating or providing your details to local authorities.
Before your arrival in the UK, you must complete a passenger locator form. You must present these details on your arrival in England. This applies to both visitors and UK residents.
From 10th July, unless you have visited or stopped in any other country or territory preceding 14 days, those arriving from the following countries and territories will not be required to self-isolate on arrival into England:
- Antigua and Barbuda
- Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba

This list may be added to over the coming days following further discussions between the UK and international partners.
