Arriving at Harlaxton

This is what you need to do if you qualify under the fully vaccinated rules for travel to England.

  • must self-isolate
  • take a PCR test before the end of day 2 after you arrive (lateral flow tests will not be accepted)
  • can leave self-isolation if your PCR test result is negative

When you arrive in England – fully vaccinated

Before you travel to England you must:

From 4am, Tuesday 7 December you must also take a PCR or LFD COVID-19 test within the 2 days before you travel to England. Read more about taking a COVID-19 test before you travel to England.

You cannot use an NHS test for your PCR test. You must use a private test provider.

You will need to enter your COVID-19 test booking reference number on your passenger locator form.

If you’re in England for less than 2 days, you still need to book and pay for a day 2 COVID-19 test. You must quarantine until you receive a negative day 2 COVID-19 PCR test, or until you leave England, whichever is sooner.

When you arrive in England – fully vaccinated

After you arrive in England you must take a COVID-19 PCR test. This is the test that you booked before travel.

You can take the test any time after you arrive and before the end of day 2 at the latest. The day you arrive is day 0.

You must quarantine in your home or the place you are staying while you await your test result.

Test results

If your test result is negative, you can end your quarantine.

If your test result is positive, you must self-isolate for 10 full days. The day of the test is day 0.

If your test result is unclear, you must self-isolate for 10 full days. The day you took the test is day 0.

If your test result is unclear, you can choose to take another private test. If the result of that test is negative, you can stop self-isolating.

If your PCR test result is delayed, you must quarantine until you receive a negative test result or until day 14 after arrival, whichever is sooner.

Returning to the United States after the program

Starting December 6, all air passengers, regardless of vaccination or citizenship status, must show a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than 1 day before travel to the United States. Non-immigrant, non-U.S. citizen air travelers will still be required to be fully vaccinated and to provide proof of their vaccination status. Until December 6, the rules below apply.

In addition, the order also requires a passenger attestation stating they have received a negative Qualifying Test result (this is not in place of a test). The Attestation may be found on the CDC website's “Passenger Attestation Form”.
