17 May 2021

The Health Protection (Coronavirus, International Travel) (Wales) Regulations 2020 are amended from 6am on 17 May 2021.

They still include a requirement for persons arriving in Wales from non-exempt countries or territories to isolate for a period determined in accordance with the Regulations.

Persons travelling into Wales having been in an exempt country or territory listed in Schedule 3 to the International Travel Regulations are required to book and undertake a day 2 test, whereas persons travelling from a non-exempt country or territory must book and undertake a day 2 and day 8 test.

Provision is also made relating to failure to take tests and the consequences of test results, and countries and territories have been added to the list of exempt countries and territories in Schedule 3.

To reflect these changes, consequential amendments have also been made to the Health Protection (Coronavirus, International Travel, Pre-Departure Testing and Operator Liability) (Wales) (Amendment) Regulations 2021 and the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Public Health Information for Persons Travelling to Wales etc.) Regulations 2020.
