Travelers who are fully vaccinated in the USA with vaccines authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), will be able to travel to England without having to quarantine or take a day 8 test on arrival.
Travelers who have been fully vaccinated in the USA will still be required to complete a pre-departure test 72 hours before arrival into England, alongside a PCR test on or before day 2 after arrival. Those vaccinated in the US will also need to provide proof of US residency.
Passengers from all countries cannot travel to the UK unless they have completed a passenger locator form.
Please note what you must do when you arrive in the UK from abroad depends on where you have been in the 10 days before you arrive and where you are staying. Separate testing and quarantining rules are currently in place for international arrivals from Red and Green countries into England and for all international arrivals into the rest of the UK (Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) because of COVID-19.

Before returning to the USA effective immediately, the United States requires that all air passengers entering the country will be required to provide a negative COVID-19 test prior to boarding their flight as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Many of our travel suppliers have made arrangements for on-site COVID-19 testing right at your hotel (view these travel supplier policies).
Reminder-if you do any COVID testing or seek any healthcare while abroad, please retain all receipts for insurance purposes.
