From 4am Monday 4 October, the UK will start accepting UAE vaccines.

The rules for travel from countries not on the UK red list will depend on your vaccination status.

The four approved vaccines include:

  1. Oxford/AstraZeneca
  2. Pfizer BioNTech
  3. Moderna
  4. Janssen

*Sinopharm is NOT included in the UK’s approved list of vaccines. 

The following formulations of the 4 listed vaccines qualify as approved vaccines as well:

  1. AstraZeneca Covishield
  2. AstraZeneca Vaxzevria
  3. Moderna Takeda

You must have had a complete course of an approved vaccine at least 14 days before you arrive in England.

If you qualify as fully vaccinated you will have to:

  • Book and pay for a day 2 COVID-19 test – to be taken after arrival in England
  • Complete your passenger locator form – any time in the 48 hours before you arrive in England
  • Take a COVID-19 test on or before day 2 after you arrive in England

Under the new rules, you will not need to:

  • Take a pre-departure test
  • Take a day 8 COVID-19 test
  • Quarantine at home or in the place you are staying for 10 days after you arrive in England

You will NEED to show proof of vaccination (digital or paper-based) from a national or state-level public health body that includes, as a minimum:

  • Forename and surname(s)
  • Date of birth
  • Vaccine brand and manufacturer
  • Date of vaccination for every dose
  • Country or territory of vaccination and/or certificate issuer

If your document from a public health body does not include all of these, you must follow the non-vaccinated rules. *If not, you may be denied boarding.
