  1. A digital registration via Passenger Locator Form (max. 48h prior to entry).
  2. A self-isolation in the cabin except for transport-related activities or indispensable reasons such as the purchase of food, toilet visits or limited sporting confirmation.
  3. In case of stays longer than 48h, there is the obligation to take a COVID-19 test at one of the British test centers before the end of the 2nd day after entering the country. For longer stays, a further test is mandatory every 72h, (typically on the 5th and 8th day from entry).
  • There are two exceptions for the self-isolation in the cabin and the requirement to test on the 2nd / 5th / 8th day of the stay, in the following cases:

Exception 1: The driver has stayed exclusively in states that are listed as "green" according to the United Kingdom classification during the last 10 days before entering the country.

Exception 2: Thedriver has been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in the European Union, the United Kingdom or Switzerland for at least 14 days prior to entry into the United Kingdom and has not been in a "red" listed state in the 10 days prior to entry. After 14 days from the second vaccination, the drivers are exempt from the self-isolation, as well as the requirement to test on the 5th and 8th days of United Kingdom stay. However, the first of the three tests (on the 2nd day of the stay) must also be taken by fully vaccinated drivers.

  • Regarding the Passenger Locator Form, individuals which are part of the above exemptions will check "Yes" in the "Your coronavirus /COVID-19) vaccination status" section when asked if they are exempt from quarantine and 8-day testing requirements. You can find the current United Kingdom colour codes here.
