Quarantine for passengers arriving on or after June 8

If you are a resident or visitor travelling to the UK on or afther the 8th of June you must provide your journey and contact details and not leave the place you are staying for the first 14 days (except in very limited situations). These new rules are being described by some airlines as unlawful and ineffective.

Airlines think these are disproportionate and unfair measures

airlines have complained to the government in protest at the measures. British
Airways is backed by Ryanair and easyJet in a released statement: “These
measures are disproportionate and unfair on British citizens as well as
international visitors arriving in the UK”. The airlines urge the UK government
to remove this visitor quarantine, since they say it will have a devastating
effect on UK’s tourism industry and will destroy thousands of jobs in this
unprecedented crisis.

Not every passenger needs to complete the form or self-isolation

Passengers do not need to complete the form or self-isolation if they are travelling from one of the following places and if they were there for 14 days or more:

  • Ireland
  • The
    Channel Islands
  • The
    Isle of Man

More reasons why passengers might not have to complete the form of self-isolate can by found on the website of GOV.UK.
