Travel from some countries to Scotland is now possible.

From Monday 17 May, a new list of countries with coloured grading will be launched.

  • Green - you will not need to quarantine on arrival, but you will have to take a PCR test for Covid-19.
  • Amber - you must self-isolate on arrival for 10 days, and take two PCR tests.
  • Red - you will be required to quarantine at a managed isolation hotel for 10 days.

You can see all of the countries on the current list.

Additional requirements for international visitors

You will be required to show proof of a negative Covid-19 test, taken no more than 72 hours before travel. Further information is available from the Scottish Government on pre-departure testing.

If you're coming from outside the Common Travel Area, you will need to self-isolate in a designated quarantine hotel for 10 days at a cost of £1,750 per person. During this self-isolation you will be tested for COVID-19 on days two and eight.

Every visitor needs to provide their journey and contact details. This applies to those who land in another part of the UK, and travel on by other means to Scotland.
