All passengers must complete a United Kingdom health declaration form to enter any part of the UK. This includes England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.
Foreign visitors, British nationals, residents of the UK, and all other travelers must be able to produce a completed form when asked upon boarding and/or upon arrival.
Airlines will not allow passengers to board a flight to the UK without a PLF.
Any individual who manages to arrive in the country without a completed Passenger Locator Form will likely receive a fine. The PLF is considered a serious public safety measure and a requirement for entry to the UK.
Exceptions to this requirement include travelers arriving from the following locations (providing they have been there for the previous 10 days or more):
- Channel Islands
- Isle of Man (Mann)
Those performing certain jobs may be exempt if traveling to the UK as part of that job. One example is military personnel with an exemption letter from the Ministry of Defence (MOD).
Passengers in transit must also complete a PLF.
