- The United Kingdom authorities are preparing to introduce a self-isolation requirement for travellers from Luxembourg. This measure will, in principle, enter into force today at midnight.
- Under the measures put in place, travellers from Luxembourg will be required to self-isolate for 14 days and to fill out the Public Health passenger locator form before arrival.
- Transit by air will continue to be possible without the obligation to self-isolate in the event that it is not necessary to pass through border control.
- Regulations may vary slightly depending on whether you are travelling to England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland.
- A medical certificate or proof of a negative COVID test is not grounds for exemption from the self-isolation requirement.
- The list of countries exempted from the self-isolation requirement is regularly reviewed. It is recommended that travellers coming from Luxembourg keep themselves informed on the official websites about the exact modalities applicable: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-travellers-exempt-from-uk-border-rules and https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-travel-corridors#travel-corridors-countries-and-territories-exemption-list.
