You must have had a complete course of an approved vaccine at least 14 days before you arrive in England.

Where 2 doses of a vaccine are required for a full course, you will be able to mix 2 different types of vaccine, for example Oxford/AstraZeneca and Moderna. You are also allowed to have the 2 vaccinations under 2 different approved programmes, for example Australia and Japan, UK and USA, EU and Canada.

If you are coming from a non red list country and have not been fully vaccinated in the UK, EU, USA, or other accepted vaccination program at least 14 days ago, you’ll need to take a Covid-19 PCR test on Day 2 and on Day 8. You will also need to quarantine on return. These tests are suitable for all international arrivals outside of the UK, Ireland, Isle of Man and the Channel Islands.

The Day 8 test is only mandatory for travellers who have not been fully vaccinated in the UK, EU, USA, or other accepted vaccination program at least 14 days ago, Failure to take the tests can result in a fine of up to £1,000.
