UK passenger locator form

Everyone needs to fill in a UK passenger locator form (PLF) within the 48 hours before arriving in the UK.

Please note, you’ll need to book your day two test (plus an day eight test if you’re 18 and over, not fully vaccinated and travelling from an Amber List destination) before you return to the UK to be able to complete this form.

And just so you know, we can’t give you a valid boarding pass for your flight to the UK until we’ve seen evidence of your completed UK passenger locator form. Therefore, you must complete it before going to airport check-in.

Here’s what you need to do before your flight to the UK:

  1. Check in online
  2. Complete the UK passenger locator form in the 48 hours before you arrive in the UK
  3. Go to our airport check-in desk and show the QR code you received via email confirmation
  4. Receive your valid boarding pass and go to security
