Default Covid 19 test, locator form.

I'm flying back to Northern Ireland on Saturday via Dublin Airport and then driving up. Wondering if anyone has flown to dublin recently and then went to wherever in the UK after that. I know about the day 2 test for the UK, Ireland right now doesn't require a test other than the locator form. Do I need to fill out a UK and Irish locator form? It's hard to find an answer.

Thanks.
Steven

Yes, you do need to fill out a UK locator form - https://www.gov.uk/guidance/travel-t...he-isle-of-man

And don’t forget your day 2 test now has to be a PCR as you’re arriving after the rule change.

HTH.

And you need to self isolate until your PCR test returns negative - this can be taken at any point after arrival but must be before the end of Day Two. Day of arrival counts as Day 0. I think you should be able to book a test at the airport for your arrival and likely have the results within the day.

I just had to pay quite a lot more money to change our Day 2 tests from at home Lateral Flow to in airport PCR due to the new isolation requirement...

And you need to do one for Ireland as well. I flew into Dublin from the US last August, and they asked me for one even though I was just transferring.
