UK will lift all of its remaining coronavirus pandemic-related international travel restrictions from this Friday, including requiring travelers to fill out a mandatory passenger locator form before entering the country.

From 4am GMT on Friday, arrivals in the UK will not be required to submit travel details or take a PCR test, even if they are without vaccination. The change would remove the remaining rules for unvaccinated passengers to have a pre-departure test and another test two days after arrival.

UK is the very primary country in the world in lifting all remaining COVID-19 travel restrictions, and today's announcement is a testament to the hard work everyone in this country has put into rolling out a vaccine and protecting each other , said UK Transport Secretary Grant Shapps on Monday evening.

The country said it will continue to monitor and track potential new forms and keep a stockpile of measures that can be rapidly deployed if necessary to keep us safe.

We can lift these last restrictions thanks to the incredible success of our vaccination programme, which has boosted eight in 10 adults across the UK, he said. According to official figures, 86 per cent of the UK population has received a second dose of the coronavirus vaccine and 67 per cent of the population has received a third top-up booster dose.
