Pupils with the right to reside in the UK who are returning to the UK from a ‘red list’ country need to quarantine in a designated hotel at the airport.

No, arrivals must quarantine on one place for the full quarantine period and provide the address of where they are quarantining on the passenger locator form.

No, you cannot leave the place where you are in quarantine. You are only allowed to exercise inside the place where you are quarantining or in its garden. You are not allowed to go shopping or to visit family or friends.

All UK arrivals must book and pay for a travel test package which includes two COVID-19 tests, to be taken on or before day 2 and on or after day 8 at a cost of £210. You will be asked for the reference number when you complete your child’s passenger locator form. These tests are required regardless of whether your child opts in to the Test to Release scheme.

The Test to Release scheme allows you to reduce your child’s quarantine period. Arrivals are eligible for a private test 5 days after they enter England and can end self-isolation following a negative test result. The scheme is voluntary and so arrivals can choose to opt for quarantine for 10 days without a private test instead. Arrivals from ‘red list’ countries are not eligible for the scheme.
