What you must do before you travel?
If you’re flying to the UK, then you must surely:
take a coronavirus (COVID-19) test and get a negative result during the 3 days i.e 72hours before you travel
book and pay for a travel test package, which will include COVID-19 tests to be taken on or before day 2 and on or after day 8 of your quarantine
complete a passenger locator form with details of where you will home quarantine when you arrive and the travel test package booking reference number.
Can you pay for a test to shorten quarantine?
Yes, the "test to release" scheme will continue which allows travellers from countries not on the red list to take a test on day five of isolation.
Tests cost between £65 and £120, and results are normally received within 24 to 48 hours.
If you test negative you can stop isolating. But if your test comes out positive then you must quarantine for 10 more days after the test.
Anyone using the scheme will still have to take a further test on the eighth day.
Which countries are on the red list?
The red list consists mainly of countries in South America and Africa.
Only one European country that is Portugal - is included because of its links to Brazil. The United Arab Emirates(UAE) is also on the list.
So in total, there are 33 such countries which are included in the red list.
Africa: Angola, Botswana, Burundi, Cape Verde, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Eswatini, French Guiana, Guyana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, Seychelles, South Africa, Suriname, Tanzania, Uruguay, Zambia, Zimbabwe
South America: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Venezuela

What are the quarantine rules for 'red list' travellers?
UK and Irish residents arriving in England who have been in "red list" countries in the previous 10 days will need to quarantine in a hotel room for 10 days on their arrival.
They will have to book online through a dedicated portal in advance and pay for a quarantine package, which includes assigned transport to their hotel, COVID testing and food and drinks.
The charge for a single adult will be £1,750
On the other hand, if you are arriving in England from a country that isn't on the UK's "red list" like India which is not on the list, then you will not have to quarantine in a hotel room.
However, you will have to complete a 10-day quarantine period at the student accommodation or home you’ll be staying in.
