Visiting Scotland from Overseas

Fully vaccinated travellers from the EU and US (authorised vaccines only) can travel to Scotland from 4 am on Monday 2 August. You will still need to produce a negative test result prior to departure and a negative PCR test result on day two after arrival in Scotland.

Travel from some countries to Scotland is now possible, depending on their status on the following list:

  • Green - you will not need to quarantine on arrival, but you will have to take a PCR test for Covid-19, no more than 72 hours before travel. See further information on pre-departure testing.
  • Amber - you must self-isolate on arrival for 10 days, and take two PCR tests.
  • Red - you will be required to quarantine at a designated quarantine hotel for 10 days at a cost of £1,750 per person. You will be tested for COVID-19 on days 2 and 8.

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