Wherever you are coming from, travelling to Scotland is convenient and simple, with lots of travel options available. Once here, the country's road, rail and ferry network provides good access to all regions and to our many great visitor destinations.
VISITING SCOTLAND FROM OVERSEAS
Travel from some countries to Scotland is now possible.
Green - you will not need to quarantine on arrival, but you will have to take a PCR test for Covid-19.
Amber - you must self-isolate on arrival for 10 days, and take two PCR tests.
Red - you will be required to quarantine at a managed isolation hotel for 10 days.
ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS FOR INTERNATIONAL VISITORS
You will be required to show proof of a negative Covid-19 test, taken no more than 72 hours before travel. Further information is available from the Scottish Government on pre-departure testing.
If you're coming from outside the Common Travel Area, you will need to self-isolate in a designated quarantine hotel for 10 days at a cost of £1,750 per person. During this self-isolation you will be tested for COVID-19 on days two and eight.
Every visitor needs to provide their journey and contact details. This applies to those who land in another part of the UK, and travel on by other means to Scotland.
Anyone visiting Scotland's islands is:
Encouraged to take two lateral flow tests before travelling.
The first test should be three days before you travel.
The second test on the day of travel.
If you test positive, you would be able to take a more-sensitive PCR test to confirm the result before cancelling your visit.
