Returning to the UK

Travelling from and returning to the UK

If you plan to pass through another country to return to the UK, check the travel advice for the country you’re transiting. If you will pass through a red list country, book your hotel quarantine package before travelling to the UK.

When you return, you must follow the rules for entering the UK.

You are responsible for organising your own COVID-19 test, in line with UK government testing requirements. Information on COVID testing venues can be found on Grenada Tourism Authority website.

Be prepared for your plans to change

No travel is risk-free during COVID. Countries may further restrict travel or bring in new rules at short notice, for example due to a new COVID-19 variant. Check with your travel company or airline for any transport changes which may delay your journey home.

If you test positive for COVID-19, you must self-isolate at your hotel, home or other approved facility. You will be monitored until granted clearance by local health officials. If you receive a positive test, you will be contacted by the health authorities and provided with all the information on your status and the requirements for self-isolation.

You are not allowed to leave your home or hotel while in self-isolation. If you are unable to stay in your hotel due to financial or other reasons you will be placed in a state approved and monitored facility. All transfers are conducted by health officials using strict infection prevention measures. All positive cases are treated similarly. Minors will be required to self-isolate even if travelling without parents. The guardian will self-isolate with the minor if required.

Plan ahead and make sure you:

  • can access money
  • understand what your insurance will cover
  • can make arrangements to extend your stay and be away for longer than planned
