Foreign travel advice

During coronavirus (COVID-19), you need to provide your journey and contact details when you travel from another country to the UK.

For most countries, anyone coming or returning to the UK to stay in Scotland must isolate for 14 days. But some countries are exempt from this, so you may not have to self-isolate at all if you travel to them.

See the latest travel restrictions and list of exempt countries (countries you can travel to without self-isolating) on

If you need to visit another country, check before you travel what restrictions that country has in place.

The UK Government website gives the latest travel advice during coronavirus for the rest of the UK.

Hand luggage restrictions at UK airports
