*Drivers of goods vehicles remain exempt from pre-departure/day 2 & 8 testing, and are also exempt from the UK Passenger Locator Form. For full details of the exemption to entry rules check UK government's website here.
The rules below apply to all accompanying passengers and all those travelling for leisure purposes:
All persons* arriving in the UK must fill in a passenger locator form before arrival.
Before departure to the UK check if any of the countries you have visited in the last 10 days are on the red list.
If you have visited a country on the red list you must follow the red list rules.
If you have not visited any countries on the red list, what you have to do depends on your vaccination status. Check the rules before you travel at gov.uk/coronavirus.
Public health requirements may vary depending upon which nation of the UK you are travelling to. Check the relevant website if your final destination is in Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales.
Failure to comply with these measures is a criminal offence and you could be fined. There are a limited set of exemptions from these measures. You may be fined if you fraudulently claim an exemption.
At P&O Ferries, we are working with Screen4 LTD to offer our freight drivers pre-travel Covid-19 PCR self-tests. This test costs £95 and you’ll have your results within 24-48 hours of the lab receiving your sample. For any driver who doesn’t have a UK address Screen4 LTD will provide details of the closest centre where drivers can pick up the test. Note: Drivers will still need to pre-book their test online.
