Covid-19 Update: UK Government Imposes 14 Days Quarantine for Travellers Returning from Spain

Spain has been removed from the list countries exempt from the 14 day quarantine requirement upon return to the UK, following a spike in Coronavirus cases in mainland Spain.

As of today, travellers returning from Spain (including from the Balearics and Canaries) will be required to quarantine for 14 days upon return to the UK.

Quarantine (or ‘self-isolation’) means that you cannot leave the place where you will be staying in the UK for the first 14 days after arrival.

It will also be necessary to provide your journey and contact details 48 hours before you travel into the UK.  It is important to be mindful of this requirement as the provision of inaccurate information can, in England,  lead to a fine of £1000.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office advises against all but essential travel to Spain. The full list of countries that are exempt from the requirement to self-isolate upon arrival in the UK can be found here.
