United Kingdom imposes a two-week quarantine period for anyone arriving in the UK from Monday.
Passengers arriving in the UK by any mode of transport including plane, ferry or train will be asked to provide an address where they will self-isolate for 14 days. If they failed to fill in a form with true details, they will be fined £100.
Surprise visits will be used to check they are following the rules. Those in England could be fined up to £1,000 if they fail to self-isolate.
The rule applies to all travellers including U.K nationals.
More than 200 travel companies have asked for the new rules to be scrapped and some MPs have also voiced concerns., but the Home Secretary Priti Patel said the move would protect public health, now that imported coronavirus cases ”pose a more significant threat’.
Anyone arriving from the Republic of Ireland, the Channel Islands, or the Isle of Man does not have to enter quarantine.
