The Falkland Islands government has informed of the new requirements for people travelling to England. In effect, as part of its response to Covid-19, the UK government has announced new testing requirements for people travelling to England from outside the Common Travel Area.
These include, Everyone arriving must quarantine for ten days on arrival; Before leaving to travel to England, passengers must book and pay for a ‘travel test package’, which will provide you with Covid-19 tests to be taken on or before day two and on or after day eight of quarantine, FIG said.
The tests cost £210 and must be booked online.
Travellers will not be able to leave quarantine until they have received a negative result from the day eight test and have quarantined for 10 days. If you do not take the tests, it could result in a penalty of up to £2,000, FIG warned in a press statement. Anyone who tests positive for either test must quarantine for a further ten days from the day that the test was taken.
