Details and exceptions

Unimmunised travellers have the option to complete part of their mandatory 14 day quarantine at an accommodation of their choice (at home or other accommodation).

Unimmunised travellers WITH a valid pre-arrival test must complete a 4-day government quarantine stay, and will be tested on Day 3 of their stay. Upon receipt of a negative test result, travellers will be allowed to quarantine at an accommodation of their choosing for the remaining 10 days of their 14-day quarantine.

Unimmunised travellers WITHOUT a valid pre-arrival test must complete an 8-day government quarantine stay and will be tested on Day 7 of their stay. Upon receipt of a negative test result, travellers will be allowed to quarantine at an accommodation of their choosing for the remaining 6 days of their 14-day quarantine.

Unimmunised travellers who transition to a home quarantine will be required to specify if they can quarantine alone or if they will be sharing a household with others. If sharing a household with others, the traveller will have to list the names and contact information for all household members. All adult members of the household will be contacted and asked to sign a waiver agreeing to quarantine with the traveller for the remainder of the traveller's quarantine, wear a red wristband during their quarantine, and get tested 13 days after the traveller's arrival to Bermuda (this test will be scheduled for household members at Perot). The traveller will not be released from government quarantine until all adult household members have signed their waivers.

Details and exceptions

Qualified fully vaccinated travelers are not required to present a pre-departure test when traveling to England. However, they are still required to book and pay for a day 2 COVID-19 test which will be taken on or before day 2 after arrival in the country. An individual traveling to the country is considered fully vaccinated if he/she meets the qualification indicated here.

Travelers who are unvaccinated, partially vaccinated or those who are not qualified under the fully vaccinated rules are required to present a pre-departure test (to be taken any time in the 3 days before the departure date), day 2 and day 8 PCR tests. They may check the pricelist and order the test thru these authorized testing providers.

Travelers could be fined £500 if they are unable to present a pre-departure test.
