A the time of sending this mailshot it isn't even on the UK Government website. However this information has just been confirmed by PO Ferries & on the Eurotunnel website (We check the Eurotunnel website as they always seem to be the first to have updates)
We're sorry for this late update and find it astonishing that any Government would give people less than 9 hours notice before coming in to effect.
Please understand this once again this is something beyond our control.
Everyone will be required to prove that you've been fully vaccinated by an NHS PASS at least 14 days before departure & Have at least
3 months remaining on your passport
While Coach Innovations will do our best to keep you informed on any updates, ultimately it's your responsibility to make sure you have the correct vaccine requirements & documentation in place to produce to Border Force agents.

As from 04.00 on November 30th all passengers entering the UK will need to pre-book a PCR test which must be taken within 48 hours of returning to the UK
This applies to everybody whether fully vaccinated or not. You will need to self isolate until you receive a negative result (usually 48 hours)
