Accommodation, public spaces and services

All domestic restrictions have been removed on 25 February 2022. Hotels and tourist attractions are open.

The rules for school groups returning from Iceland

All UK COVID travel restrictions will be removed with effect from 18 March 2022, making it much easier for groups returning home from a school trip abroad. This means that, regardless of vaccination status, the following will apply:

  • 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 on their return to the UK 

Groups planning an overseas trip will still need to be aware of other countries' entry rules.
