From 28 July, passengers will not need to self-isolate when arriving in England or Scotland from Estonia

Today, the UK government added Estonia to the list of countries exempt from the requirement to self-isolate when travelling to Engand. From Tuesday, 28 July, travellers arriving in England from Estonia are not required to self-isolate for 14 days.

The UK government has  added Estonia, Latvia, Slovakia, Slovenia and St Vincent and the Grenadines to the list of travel corridors, after reviewing the latest risk assessments.

The 5 new countries have been added to the current list of destinations from which passengers do not need to self-isolate when arriving to England.

The changes, which will take effect in England from Tuesday 28 July 2020, come as the government urges passengers to continue to protect themselves when considering travelling abroad by making sure they are up to date on the latest information – both at home and at their destination.

The easiest and simplest way to do this is to consult the FCO’s travel advice and check insurance policies before any overseas travel.

All travellers, including those from exempt destinations, will still be required to complete a passenger locator form on arrival into the UK.

Government will update GOV.UK with any changes on a weekly basis (should any be required) to reflect the shifting international health picture. We are prepared to respond rapidly if the health situation of a country deteriorates.

The border health measures remain subject to review every 28 days in England.
