Changes for International Hauliers for COVID-19

Changes to haulier testing requirements for fully vaccinated UK hauliers returning from amber list countries came into effect from 19th July 2021.

Drivers are not required to isolate in their cab on arrival in England or take further tests after the day 2 test, if they have either been fully vaccinated under the UK vaccination programme and have not been in France or a red list country in the 10 days before arriving in England.

For drivers in France you will be subject to a day 2 test and further tests every 3 days. You will also be required to isolate in your cab,

Restrictions for Germany have also changed and drivers from the UK only require a COVID-19 test if they will be in Germany for longer than 72 hours.

Gov.UK have published guidance on COVID-19 safe practice for international hauliers, see Coronavirus (COVID-19): safer practice for international hauliers – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
