What you must do if arriving from a red list country

When travelling to the UK from a red list country (or if you have passed through a red list country within 10 days of your arrival in the UK), you cannot travel directly to Wales and must enter through a designated port in England or Scotland.

Travellers arriving from a red list country must:

Post arrival tests and managed quarantine must be booked before your departure, through the CTM portal. Book your tests and hotel quarantine on the CTM portal.

Should your address or contact details change whilst you are in managed quarantine then you must update this as and when required by submitting a new passenger locator form.

There are some exemptions from certain travelling requirements for specific categories of people.

List of red list countries

There are no countries on the red list at this time.
