Passengers banned from boarding flights to UK without negative COVID-19 test - The Telegraph

Passengers arrive from international flights at Heathrow Airport in London

(Reuters) - Airlines flying into the UK will be required to bar passengers from boarding if they do not have a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of departure, the Telegraph reported late on Tuesday.

Every traveller coming into any UK port or airport will be expected to have a negative PCR test to enter the UK as part of a significant toughening of border controls, the report added.
