I’m returning from a country not on the list. What are the quarantine rules?

If you return to the UK from a country that is not on the travel corridor list you must self-isolate. 

When you get home, you will need to self-isolate for 14 days. 

You must also show proof of a completed passenger locator form at the UK border. You may be refused permission to enter the UK (if you are not a British citizen), or fined if you do not provide your contact details or fail to self-isolate.

If you travel from an exempt country but have been in a country that is not exempt within the past 14 days, you will need to self-isolate for the remainder of the 14 days since you were in a non-exempt country. If you transit through a country that is not exempt you will be required to self-isolate for 14 days.

For example, if you arrive in the UK from a country that is exempt, but you travelled to the exempt country four days ago from a country that is not exempt, you will need to self-isolate for 10 days. If you’re travelling to the UK for less than 10 days you will need to self-isolate for the duration of your visit.
