Birmingham Airport remains open and is operating safely for those legally permitted to travel. 

Quarantine and Testing

We advise passengers due to travel to refer to the latest government guidance regarding quarantine requirements upon entering the UK as well as the rules or restrictions at your destination arrival point. Many countries require you to carry out a test before arriving in the country or have local restrictions in place which you may wish to be aware of before you leave home. The types of test and the timing required to take the test before departure vary by destination. Please ensure that you confirm the type of test required before booking a test. 

Passengers arriving from abroad are likely to be required to quarantine, either at home or in a hotel, upon their return to the UK. Read about travel and transport measures in place to protect England from coronavirus.

Travel declaration form 

From 8 March 2021, you must complete a travel declaration form to confirm that you are legally allowed to travel abroad from England.

You must complete this form if you are travelling outside the UK from England. Different rules apply for international travel from Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

You don’t need to complete the form for travel within the UK, to Ireland, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man.

You should print a copy of the completed form or save it to a mobile phone or other device.

You may be asked to show this declaration form at the port of departure. You may carry evidence to support your reason for travel.
