The government has issued new instructions for passengers arriving in the United Kingdom from Monday 8 June.
The advice states:
If you arrive in the UK from 8 June onwards, you must complete the Public Health Passenger Locator Form before you travel. You cannot submit the form until 48 hours before you’re due to arrive in the UK.
You’ll need to show your completed form when you arrive at the UK border, either by printing a copy, or showing it on your phone.
The government will use this information to contact you if you or someone you’ve travelled with develops coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms, and to check that you’re self-isolating for the first 14 days after you arrive in the UK.
Each passenger travelling in a group must complete a separate form. If you are travelling with someone under 18 years old, they do not need their own form, provided you:
- will arrive and leave together
- will stay at the same UK address
- add their details into your form
The Public Health Passenger Locator Form and instructions for completing it is available here: https://www.gov.uk/provide-journey-contact-details-before-travel-uk.
The guidance explaining who will be exempt from new border rules in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland is available here:
If you need to contact the form and isolation helpline, you can do so from Monday to Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm on 0800 6781767.
