The UK will impose a two-week quarantine, with fixed penalty fines of £1,000 for any breaches, from June 8, Home Secretary Priti Patel has announced.
Passengers will have to fill a form providing their contact and travel information so they can be traced if infections arise and could be contacted regularly during the 14 days to ensure their compliance.
Breaches will be punishable with a £1,000 fixed penalty notice in England, or prosecution with an unlimited fine, while devolved nations can set out their own enforcement approaches.
