The changes were made ahead of the Easter holidays and will save travelers time and money.

We’ve compiled a full list of travel changes as of today.

Passenger Locator Forms scrapped

The scrapping of PLFs is today’s big change and the only one affecting vaccinated travelers.

The form had to be completed by all those entering the UK, asking for information about your travel dates, address and vaccination status.

Although the form was simplified last month, it was still time-consuming and an added hassle for travelers, so vacationers will be relieved they don’t have to do it anymore.

But from today nobody has to do it anymore – regardless of the vaccination status.
