Can you travel to Wales from within the CTA?

If you go to Wales from inside the CTA but have been in or transited through an amber country or territory in the ten days preceding your arrival, you must isolate in Wales for the duration of the ten days. The only exception is if you are going directly to a designated medical facility in Wales for treatment.

Do you have to isolate when travelling to Wales?

If you drive by private car via an amber list nation or territory and arrive in Wales, you must isolate, even if you did not stop or get out of the vehicle throughout your route. This means that you must stay in your vehicle for at least 24 hours after arriving in Wales.

If your journey is by air, the rule is the same as for driving. If the aircraft stops at an airport without a permanent passenger terminal, such as a military base, you must also stay in your vehicle for at least 24 hours after landing there. Otherwise you might be forced to isolate yourself from other people even though you might not be sick.

The rules are different if you're travelling with others on a shared vehicle. For example, if you're taking the bus into Wales with several other people, they would all need to isolate themselves before you do. Then once you've done your route and arrived back in the main part of town, everyone would need to leave their isolation together.

However, if someone got off the bus earlier than expected and caught another bus/train home before the rest of you, they could go directly back to work/school. So only those on the same bus/train as them should isolate them then.

How can I travel from England to Wales?

You will be permitted to enter Wales from "red list" nations only through a specified port of entry in England or Scotland, where you will be isolated for 10 days in a nearby supervised quarantine hotel. Wales has no recognized ports of entry. Fill out a passenger locator form with your travel and contact information. The form is available online at

You cannot travel to Wales from within the EU without satisfying the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Can we go to Wales?

There are no limitations on entering or leaving Wales as long as you are traveling to or from a nation inside the United Kingdom or the larger Common Travel Area (Ireland, Isle of Man, and the Channel Islands). You do not need a visa to enter Wales.

You can stay in Wales for a maximum of 6 months, but if you plan to stay longer, you should consider getting a permit. These permits are usually not required by citizens of the UK or the other common travel areas. They are required by citizens of other countries. The cost is $20 per person.

Citizens of the UK and other common travel areas do not require a visa to enter Wales. However, there is a form that must be filled out before you arrive at the border and another one to be filed with the local police station upon departure from Wales.

Welsh is the official language here and people will speak some English, but mainly they will communicate using Welsh. If you don't understand anything that's being said, ask for more information. It is a very friendly country and most people will happily help you out.

How many days do you need to see Wales?
