Do I need to complete a Passenger Locator form when travelling by ferry to the United Kingdom?
From 8 June 2020 there will be new health measures in place for entering the United Kingdom because of the coronavirus (COVID-19). These measures are for all entrants, including UK residents and all visitors from overseas.
Travelling from Dublin to Holyhead or Rosslare to Fishguard:- You do not need to complete the form or self-isolate if you’re travelling from within the Common Travel Area (CTA), which includes the Republic of Ireland, United Kingdom, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man, and you were there for 10 days or more. If you have arrived into the Common Travel Area within 10 days of travelling to the United Kingdom, you must complete the Public Health Passenger Locator Form before travelling and undertake or continue your 10 day period of self-isolation. You must take a copy of the completed form with you when you travel and have the option to print it out or show a completed copy from your device.
It is your responsibility to provide these details. The UK Border Force will be undertaking checks and could refuse entry. If you are refused entry, you will be required to cover the cost of travel with us back to your port of departure at your own expense.
The latest information and guidance on these measures can be found at https://www.gov.uk/uk-border-control and exemptions for self-isolation are here https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-travellers-exempt-from-uk-border-rules.
