Inbound Traveller Advice Update 6th January 2022

People travelling to Scotland from abroad who are fully vaccinated or under the age of 18 will no longer need to take pre-departure Covid tests, and no longer be required to self-isolate on arrival until they’ve received a negative result, from 4am on Friday (7 January).

Travellers in this group will still need to take a test on or before day 2 after arriving in the UK – which can be a lateral flow device rather than a PCR test from Sunday.

Anyone who tests positive on their lateral flow test will need to isolate and take a free confirmatory PCR test.

In addition, vaccine certificates for a further 16 countries and territories have been approved to allow quarantine-free travel to Scotland from 4am on 10 January. The red list of highest risk countries will remain unchanged with no countries currently on the list.
