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.

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
