Since Monday 17th May international travel slowly started to open back up again. As expected, a traffic light system was put in place – red, amber and green. Similar to what we experienced last year with the “travel corridors” these changes to which countries are listed on changes every 3 weeks.

From Monday 19th July UK residents who are double vaccinated arriving back to England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland from an amber traffic light country do not need to quarantine for 10 days. You will still need to do a rapid antigen test within 48 hours to return back to the UK to get your fit to fly certificate and you will also need to book a day 2 test before you arrive back to the UK. A day 2 test is a PCR test, the day you arrive back to the UK is day 0. For example, if you arrive back in the UK on a Sunday (Day 0) you will need to do a Day 2 test on or before Tuesday (Day 2). A PCR test is a swab test that needs to be sent to back to our laboratory to be analysed. This test can take up to 24 hours once your PCR swab test reaches our laboratory. Once we have your results we will email and upload your test results certificate.
