Bus & Coach Drivers removed from the list of exemptions for mandatory Covid 19 testing when entering UK


In an updated information, it is learnt that Bus & Coach Drivers are no longer included in the list of exempted professions that do not need a mandatory testing when entering the UK.

This means drivers need to take a test, though they do not need to self-isolate. More detailed guidance on this can be found here.

Revised list is as follows.

– Hauliers

–  Border and Customs officials

– Channel Tunnel system workers

– Defence personnel, visiting forces and Government contractors

– Air, maritime and rail crew

– Civil aviation inspectors

– People transporting human cells and blood products

– Seamen and masters and inspectors and surveyors of ships

– Specialist technical workers doing emergency works
