The Government has announced how international travel can restart this summer through the introduction of a new traffic light system. As part of this there are some essential steps that you need to take returning home from holiday, which will vary by destination. Read below for more information about what this means. This information was last updated at 16:00, 10 May 2021, but please be aware it can change, sometimes at short notice, so make sure to keep checking the https://www.gov.uk/government/news/government-confirms-traffic-light-list-ahead-of-cautious-return-to-international-travel for the latest updates. We recommend that you sign up for their email alerts, should anything change.
It’s important to know that this traffic light system only applies to your return journey. You’ll also need to ensure that everyone in your party meets the entry requirements for your destination. Full details of this and what actions are needed for each Traffic Light colour can be found here, https://www.gov.uk/guidance/red-amber-and-green-list-rules-for-entering-england Please bear in mind, these actions could change between booking and travel. Due to Covid-19, this may include steps such as completing and submitting documentation in advance to show at the airport, proof of a negative Covid-19 test and/or complying with any applicable vaccination rules. You’ll need to make sure you meet these requirements so your holiday can go ahead as planned.
