WELCOME TO MY ADVICE GATEWAY

My Advice Gateway is a free resource to help you quickly find the information you need to claim benefits, access help and support or look for a job or training opportunities. Other services include sections on banking, insurance and how to manage debt.

There is so much information available on the internet that it can often be a tedious and time consuming activity to search through the mass of advice that is available in order to find the information you need. Even government websites that have been set up to provide help can be difficult to find your way around.

My Advice Gateway has been built to help you find the information you need quickly and effectively. Links will take you to authoritative advice or the precise application form you need.

We hope you will find My Advice Gateway useful. If you do, why not tell your friends. . .

COVID-19 TRAVEL INFORMATION AND RESTRICTIONS
COVID-19 TRAVEL INFORMATION AND RESTRICTIONS

Travelling in the UK

Advice and guidance for safe travel within the UK (subject to local tier restrictions) can be found at the following links:

Travelling Outside the UK

Latest information on travel corridors and rules for self-isolation are available at the following links:

Returning to the UK

As from Monday January 18th all travel corridors for people arriving in England are suspended.

To stop the spread of potentially harmful variants into the UK, more stringent measures are in place for people who have travelled from or passed through any country from which entry to the UK is banned (known as the ‘Red List’) in the last 10 days before arrival.

The current list of countries from which entry to the UK is banned is available from GOV.UK.

Travelling from a country that is NOT on the Red List

Before you travel you must:

  • Take a coronavirus (COVID-19) test and get a negative result during the 3 days before you travel. Failure to present proof of a negative test result certificate, will mean you may not be able to board any form of transport to travel to England. If you arrive in England without proof of a negative test result, you could be fined £500.
  • Complete a passenger locator form with details of where you will home quarantine when you arrive and the travel test package booking reference number. You may be fined if you have not completed the form by the time you reach the UK border. If you are not a British Citizen or a UK resident you may be refused admission to the UK.

When you arrive in England, you must travel directly to the place you’re staying and remain at that place, not leaving, for 10 days. This is known as ‘self-isolating’. Full details of how to self-isolate when you travel to the UK are available from GOV.UK.

Details of the testing on day 2 and day 8 for international arrivals is available from GOV.UK.

Comprehensive details of everything you need to do if you are returning to England from a country NOT on the Red List can be found at GOV.UK.

Travelling from a country that is ON the Red List

Before you travel you must:

  • Take a coronavirus (COVID-19) test and get a negative result during the 3 days before you travel. Failure to present proof of a negative test result certificate, will mean you may not be able to board any form of transport to travel to England. If you arrive in England without proof of a negative test result, you could be fined £500.
  • Book a managed quarantine hotel where you will quarantine. Your quarantine package will include your managed quarantine hotel, quarantine transport and your travel test package for COVID-19 tests on day 2 and day 8 of quarantine.
  • Complete a passenger locator form with details of where you will quarantine when you arrive. You must provide a quarantine package booking reference number to complete your passenger locator form. You may be fined if you have not completed the form by the time you reach the UK border. If you are not a British Citizen or a UK resident you may be refused admission to the UK.

When you arrive in England, you will be met at passport control and guided through baggage reclaim and customs to the dedicated hotel transport.

Details of the testing on day 2 and day 8 for international arrivals is available from GOV.UK.

Comprehensive details of everything you need to do, how hotel quarantine works and what to expect if you are returning to England from a country that is ON the Red List can be found at GOV.UK.

Test to Release for international travel scheme

If you have arrived in England from a country NOT on the red list you are able to take a COVID-19 test with a private test provider to see if you can end self-isolation early.

The earliest you can take the test is 5 full days after you left a place not on the travel corridor list. Results will normally be issued within 24 to 48 hours meaning you could be released from quarantine six days after arrival.

You will still need to take a test on or before day 2 for variant surveillance and on or after day 8.

More information on applying for Test to Release is available from:
