I come from a country not on the list. What are the quarantine rules?

If you are returning to the UK from a country that is not on the travel corridor list, you must isolate yourself.

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

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

If you are traveling from an exempt country but have been to a non-exempt country in the last 14 days, you will need to self-isolate for the remainder of the 14 days since you were in a country not exempt. If you are passing through a country that is not exempt, you will need to self-isolate for 14 days.

For example, if you arrive in the UK from an exempt country, but traveled to the exempt country four days ago from a non-exempt country, you will need to self-isolate for 10 days. If you are traveling to the UK for less than 10 days, you will need to self-isolate for the duration of your visit.
