    - This does not apply to military personnel with an exemption letter from the Ministry of Defence.
    A) PLF - Passengers who declare that they have been in or transited through a red-listed country in the last 10 days:
    • Passengers who declare they have been in a red-listed country in the last 10 days will be prompted to book a managed quarantine service (MQS) hotel and testing package and enter the booking details on their PLF. They will not be able to complete the PLF unless they enter these details on the PLF.
    • Therefore, any passenger that has been in a red-listed country should have MQS details, and this will be clearly displayed on the first page of the PLF. See examples attached.
    • Some passengers may declare they have been in a red-listed country in the travel history section of the PLF, but mistakenly state they have not been in a red-listed country in the last 10 days when asked the question. This will mean there will not be MQS details for such passengers. Where this is the case, the passenger may be denied boarding.
    • Carriers will not be held liable if the passenger deliberately conceals (fails to declare) on their PLF that they have been in a red-listed country in the last 10 days.
    • Passengers who declare they have been in a red-listed country may only be conveyed to the approved MQS ports of arrival.

    B) PLF - Passengers who declare on their PLF that they have not been in or transited through a red-listed country in the last 10 days:
    • Passengers who declare they have not been in a red-listed country in the last 10 days are required to have a booking reference for post-arrival testing which they will undertake from private accommodation where they will be required to self-isolate for the first 10 days after arrival.
    • Such passengers will automatically be prompted when they complete the PLF to enter a test booking reference number.
    • Such passengers may be conveyed to any port of arrival.

    C) PLF – Checks for services scheduled to arrive at all ports other than designated MQS ports of arrival:
    • Ensure no passengers are permitted to board if they have declared on their PLF that they have been in a red-listed country in the last 10 days.
    • When checking PLFs look for whether the passenger has declared that they have been in a red-listed country in the last 10 days. If they have, they should be denied boarding.
    • The grounds to deny boarding is that the passenger would not be permitted to enter the UK on arrival if they are not a resident national, and the operator would be committing an offence to convey them.

    D) PLF – Handling of passengers who claim they are exempt from MQS or testing:
    • Some limited exemptions apply for MQS and post-arrival testing. The carrier may permit passengers who do not have such details on their PLF to board if they have a reasonable belief the passenger has a reasonable excuse for not booking a test or is exempt.
