Starting with 8.08.2021, Romania is on the green list.
Travelers arriving in Wales from a green listed country should take note of the following.
If you arrive in Wales from a country or territory on the green list you will need to:
- Fill in a passenger locator form where you will provide information about your trip and contact details. (This can be done electronically before arriving in Wales. You may be asked to provide these details at the point of arrival) Here you will find the form.
- You need proof of a negative coronavirus test (COVID-19). Applicable to all travelers (over 11 years). Performed no more than 72 hours before departure (Pre-departure test – PDT).
- Take a coronavirus test (COVID-19) on or before day 2 (for anyone 5 years of age and older). The coronavirus test (COVID-19) must be pre-booked prior to arrival via the booking site.
Clearly, you can choose between 3 options on the site. (Self swab, Provider supervised on site, Self swab at home).
So, don’t forget to select the region and your favorite option. Costs start at £ 20 and can go up to £ 195. Of course, you can choose the best option for you! Here you can find the list where you can choose which option is convenient.
If you arrive in Wales from a country or territory on the green list you do not need to be quarantined. Of course, the condition is not to have traveled on a red list or an Amber list in the last 10 days before entering Wales.
Practically this applies to all travelers who intend to travel to Wales directly. (eg have direct flight).
When you arrive in Wales, you must follow the rules for the country or territory with the highest risk that you have been or have been through in the last 10 days. This may include transit stops.
A transit station is a stop where passengers can get on or off. It can be applied to ships, trains or flights. Your ticket will notify you if you have a transit stop during the trip.
Private vehicles or coaches traveling through countries or territories on the red or amber list
If you are traveling by car / bus through a country or territory with an amber / red list, then you need to isolate yourself. This is applicable even if you did not stop and get out of the vehicle during that trip. Of course, you need to know that vaccinated people are exempted from the rule.
If you do not have the vaccine, then the rules for the Amber area (quarantine, day 2 and day 8 test) must be followed.
You must register the countries you go through in the form mentioned above (Passenger Locator Form).
