Testing and travel
We advise passengers due to travel to check if there are any rules or restrictions at the arrival point destination with your airline or tour operator.

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 all international destinations will be required to present a negative COVID-19 test result before departing for England.

Test to Release - International Travel
Birmingham Airport has welcomed the announcement by the Government that passengers arriving into England from the 15th December can reduce the quarantine period from non-exempt countries by taking a private Covid-19 test. If a test taken on day five after arrival proves negative, passengers can unlock themselves early from the 10 day quarantine. This means that customers can now book with confidence for the festive season and make plans for their 2021 holidays and business trips without quarantine concerns on their return.
