  • Effective 04:00 11-Feb-2022, all testing requirements will be removed for eligible fully vaccinated arrivals, with only a passenger locator form now required;
  • Arrivals who are not recognised as fully vaccinated will be required to take a pre-departure test and a PCR test on or before day two after they arrive in the UK;
  • Children aged between 12 and 15 in England will be able to prove their vaccination status or proof of prior infection via a digital NHS COVID Pass from 03-Feb-2022 for outbound travel.

The Government attributed the easing of COVID-19 travel restrictions to "the success of the UK's vaccine and booster rollout", stating that this new COVID-19 framework "is intended to be one that will last". Airlines UK CEO Tim Alderslade stated: "Today's announcement brings international travel towards near normality for the fully vaccinated, and at last into line with hospitality and the domestic economy.
