Public Health Passenger Location form
Before you arrive in the UK you will be asked to complete a public health passenger location form. This will be provided by your travel company. If you do not complete the form before you arrive in the UK, it might take you longer to enter the UK.
You cannot submit the form until 48 hours before you’re due to arrive in the UK.
This is a free UK Government service. You do not need to pay another website or business to provide your contact details for you.
You must complete the form online. Do not print out the form and fill it in by hand.
When you arrive at the UK border you’ll need to show either:
• a printed copy of the document attached to your confirmation email
• the document attached to the confirmation email on your phone
Border Force officers will use the QR code at the top of the document to check you have completed the form successfully.
The government will use the information you give to contact you if you or someone you’ve travelled with develops coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms. If you need to self-isolate for the first 14 days after you arrive in the UK, the government will also use the information to check that you’re self-isolating.
More information or how to complete the form is provided on the UK Government COVID-19 guidance website.
