I didn’t know the critical factor. It was an essential piece of paper, and you should have it. This document is as important as your double vaccine certificate.
This detail was fortunately noticed by Sylvia and her husband in a flash.
She said, “We were fortunate we had our laptop and I also have a French printer at home so it was possible to complete the task.”
However, others were less fortunate.
When we finally got to the airport, a man was standing in front of us and staff said: “No, you cannot board,” because he hadn’t filled out his Passenger Locator form.
They wouldn’t allow him to board the plane.”
“I don’t know how many people were still stuck,” she continued. It’s not clear if anyone was allowed to continue because they couldn’t arrange the test on time.
He would need to make a booking for the PCR test, and then fill in his form with the reference numbers.
Sylvia believes there should be “certainly more clarity” in this area.
The Gov.uk website states that you must fill out a passenger locator online form before arriving in the UK.
The form can be submitted anytime within 48 hours of your arrival in the UK. When you travel to or from the UK, your passport will be required to prove your identity.
