- Grenada on Travel Corridor list
- Persons arriving in UK from Grenada will not have to self-isolate or go into quarantine
- Travellers must complete Passenger Location form
From 10 July 2020, persons arriving in the United Kingdom who were in Grenada and did not travel to countries that are not on the exemption list will not have to self-isolate or go into quarantine as part of measures to contain the spread of Covid-19.
“This applies to all travel to England, by train, ferry, coach, air or any other route. If you have been to or stopped in a country that’s not on the Travel Corridor list you will have to self-isolate until 14 days have passed since you left that country,” said the exemption rules which was published on Friday, 3 July 2020.
However, all persons arriving must complete a Passenger Location form. “You must complete this form before you arrive in the UK. You cannot submit the form until 48 hours before arrival in the UK. You’ll need to show your completed form when you arrive at the UK border, either by printing a copy or showing it on your phone,” said the rules published on www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-travel-corridors.
“The government will use this information to contact you if you or someone you’ve travelled with develops coronavirus (Covid-19) symptoms, and to check that you’re self-isolating for the first 14 days after you arrive in the UK.” The release warned that those who fail to complete the form may be fined up to £100 for refusing to provide contact details, or if the rule is broken more than once.
