Travel Bans and Quarantine Hotels: Traveling to the U.K. During COVID-19

Those contemplating travel to the U.K. should be cognizant of new border policies and restrictions implemented earlier this month. In this episode, Faegre Drinker’s Hodon Anastasi answers questions regarding the U.K. government’s latest actions concerning COVID-19, including:

  • Under what circumstances will travellers be expected to stay in government-controlled quarantine hotels? How long will they be expected to quarantine? Who is exempt from this policy?
  • What documents should travellers be expected to produce upon arrival to the U.K.?
  • What are the penalties for breaching new border policies?
  • Do these rules apply for visa holders? Under the present circumstances, is it worth applying for a U.K. visa?
