Under lockdown rules, all travel abroad is banned unless you have a “legally permitted reason to leave home”, such as necessary work that cannot be done from home.
Previously, Barbados, Antigua and Barbuda and St Lucia were on the travel corridor list , which meant that you did not have to self-isolate when returning home from those countries.
Now however, the rules have changed, and all travellers must self-isolate for ten days when they reach England.

This also applies to those coming from Antigua and Barbuda and St Lucia.
If you are entering England, Scotland or Wales from abroad, you must provide evidence of a negative Covid-19 test taken up to three days before departure.
If you do not comply, your airline or carrier may refuse to let you board the plane or you may be fined on arrival.
Before returning to the UK you must also provide your journey and contact details . This is your passenger locator form, in which you must include your passport details, travel details and the address where you will stay in the UK. This can be completed online here .
Fines for non compliance with self-isolation rules start at £1,000 in England, rising to £10,000 for repeat offences or serious breaches.
