The Health Protection (Coronavirus, International Travel) (England) Regulations 2020 are amended from 4am on 12 September 2020, to:

added The Azores, Madeira and Sweden to the list of exempt countries and territories.

Passengers are not required to self-isolate on arrival in England if, during the 14 days preceding their arrival, they have only been in or transited through exempt countries or territories, or exempt parts of countries or territories.

Passengers who have been in or transited through a non-exempt country or territory, or a non-exempt part of a country or territory, must self‑isolate until 14 days have elapsed since the day after they last left a non-exempt country or territory, or a non-exempt part of a country or territory. The change to Schedule A1 will not affect passengers who arrive in England before 4am on 12th September 2020.
