UK | COVID-19: Public Health Information for People Travelling to Wales

The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Public Health Information for Persons Travelling to Wales etc.) (Amendment) Regulations 2020 place a requirement on operators of international passenger services coming from outside the common travel area to an airport, heliport or seaport in Wales (“operators”) to provide passengers with certain public health information.

These Regulations amend the Information Regulations to—

(a)require operators to provide the information at an additional stage, namely 24 to 48 hours before an international passenger service is scheduled to depart, and

(b)update the information which is to be provided before a booking is made and check-in is completed, and during the journey to the port in Wales.

Regulation 2(3) amends the regulation 3 of the Information Regulations to specify the updated information to be provided before a booking is made and before check-in is completed.

Regulation 2(4) inserts a new regulation 3A into the Information Regulations requiring operators to provide the information 24 to 48 hours before an international passenger service is scheduled to depart.

Regulation 2(5), (6) and (7) makes consequential amendments, and regulation 2(8) substitutes the Schedule to the Information Regulations.
