News Release: Hamilton, Bermuda, July 3, 2020 – Government House is pleased to announce that Bermuda has been included in the list of jurisdictions which from July 10 are exempt from the requirement for travellers to self-isolate when arriving in England assuming they are travelling direct from Bermuda. If travellers have stopped over in a country that is not on the exempt list then they will have to self-isolate until 14 days have passed since they left that country.

Information for travel into Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will be published in due course by the devolved administrations there.

Government House is also pleased to announce that the Foreign & Commonwealth Office has updated its travel advice and that from July 4 Bermuda is no longer included among those countries for which the FCO is advising against all but essential travel.

Governor John Rankin said: “I am delighted that Bermuda has been included in both lists. Government House has kept the UK Authorities fully informed of Bermuda’s COVID-19 status. 

“The decisions to exempt Bermuda from the requirement to self-isolate on arrival in England and to remove the advice against all but essential travel to Bermuda are testament to the island’s success in tackling the COVID-19 outbreak.”
