What do the travel rules mean for groups returning from France?
All UK COVID travel rules were removed on 18th March 2022, this makes taking a school trip smoother and more affordable. Regardless of your vaccination status, the following applies:
- Children and adults no longer need to complete a Passenger Locator form
- Unvaccinated travellers no longer need to take a pre-departure COVID test before embarking on their return journey
- Unvaccinated travellers are not required to take a COVID test when back in the UK
Groups planning an overseas trip will still need to be aware of other countries' entry rules.
What about school groups returning to Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland?
Note that these rules are for groups returning to England from abroad. Follow the links below for the rules on returning from the other home nations:.
