From the 17th May 2021, the UK government has indicated that some of the restrictions governing international travel to and from England are likely to be eased. A new “Traffic Light System” is being introduced, with countries listed as green, amber or red, dependent on prevailing covid-19 infection and vaccination rates.
The requirements below are for anyone travelling into or returning to the United Kingdom from abroad.
Arrivals from green or amber countries are welcome to book a stay of any length at Cheval’s Residences in England. Choose the ‘search availability’ button to select your preferred dates.
GREEN: Arrivals from a green country will need to complete a passenger locator form and be able to show proof of a negative covid-19 test taken before their departure. They will not need to isolate or quarantine, however they must take a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test on or before day 2 following their arrival (day of arrival is day 0). Assuming the PCR test result is negative, no further action is required.
AMBER: In addition to the requirements for arrivals from GREEN countries, passengers must arrange to isolate for no fewer than 10 days in a place of their choosing. They must also pre-book (before departure) two PCR tests to be taken on days 2 and 8 of their isolation period, whilst observing the quarantine rules. It is possible to take an addition test on day 5 following arrival, for which a negative result will mean the immediate end of the quarantine period.
RED: Travel from RED countries is only possible for existing residents or citizens of the United Kingdom. You will be required to pre-book a 10-day stay in a government quarantine hotel, with testing on days 2 and 8. No early ‘test to release’ is possible in this scenario.
