Omicron variant: What are the latest travel rules?

The spread of the Omicron variant, which emerged in southern Africa, has prompted the Government to make changes to travel rules.

Yesterday Sajid Javid announced tightened requirements that will become active from 4am on Tuesday 7 December.

Travellers will need to submit evidence of a negative lateral flow or PCR test to enter, which must have been taken a maximum of 48 hours before the departure time.

All international arrivals to the UK will be required to take a second PCR test and self-isolate until they get a negative result.
