Vaccinated travelers are still required to book a rapid lateral flow test or PCR test for day 2 after arrival and complete a passenger locator form. Travelers testing positive on the rapid lateral flow test will undergo PCR testing. Those who test positive on the PCR test will be required to self-isolate for 10 days.
Vaccination exemptions will only apply if the full dose and certificate were issued in the United Kingdom, Europe, United States, and other specific countries.

If traveling to England, travelers may apply for the 'Test to Release' scheme to be tested on the fifth day after arrival and be relieved from self-isolation early, if the result is negative. Those with a positive result will be required to self-isolate for another 10 days.
