The United Kingdom has imposed a £500 fine on any passenger who fails to adhere to new regulations on pre-departure testing.

The British High Commission in Nigeria, which disclosed this in a statement on Monday, said international arrivals were now required to provide negative COVID-19 test results before departure for England.

UK PMIt added that passengers arriving from countries not on the government’s travel corridor list would still be required to self-isolate for 10 days, regardless of the test result.

The UK stated that all international travelers to England, including UK nationals, had to present a negative COVID-19 test taken up to 72 hours before departure.

This followed the recent decision to temporarily suspend direct travel from South Africa and 11 other African countries to England after new evidence emerged from health authorities reporting an outbreak of a variant of coronavirus spreading to some local communities.

The UK explained that passengers would still be required to fill in a passenger locator form and subject to national lockdown restrictions.

The UK Border Force will conduct spot checks on arrival into England to ensure that passengers are fully compliant.
