The UK Government has removed all Covid travel restrictions for travellers from abroad. Travellers no longer need to take any Covid 19 tests, either before travel or after arrival in the UK. There is also no longer a requirement to complete a UK passenger locator form before travel. This applies whether you are vaccinated or not.
Other countries still have Covid 19 entry rules in place, so you should check travel advice before travelling abroad.
