Previous rules:

From Friday 11 February 2022, fully vaccinated travellers from overseas do not need to take a test before or after they arrive in Scotland or England.

Children under 18 who normally live in the UK, EU or US, or any other country with a vaccine programme that’s approved in the UK, do not need to show proof of vaccination. 

If travelling from overseas (outwith UK, Ireland, Channel Islands or the Isle of Man), you will need to fill out the UK passenger locator form within the 48 hours before you arrive in the UK (free).

UK passenger locator form:

You will need to bring proof of vaccination.

International visitors from an EU member state, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland, Andorra, Monaco, San Marino or Vatican City, can get proof of vaccination through the European Digital COVID certificate.

If you are travelling from the US, and normally live there, you will need to bring your CDC card when you travel and provide proof of your US address, or New York Excelsior Pass Plus, California Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record or Washington State WA Verify Pass.

All international travellers need to travel with a passport (not an EU ID card).

From 11 February 2022, international travellers to Scotland and England who are NOT fully vaccinated are required to take a pre-departure test no more than two days before you travel, and also take a PCR test on, or before, day 2 of your arrival here.

Current law in Scotland is that you must wear a face covering when on public transport including when inside ferries and in ferry port offices (and Scottish airports), and in museums/visitor centres, shops, entering restaurants/bars (not when seated and eating/drinking) and entering/walking around the public areas of hotels/B&Bs. Entry to night clubs and some events requires proof of vaccination. Payment in some establishments may be by card only (no cash accepted). Food & drink businesses will still take your contact details for ‘track and trace’.
