Those who have been over wintering in Portugal are faced with paying for ten days compulsory quarantine in a hotel in England if they come straight back as Portugal is on the "red list"of countries. 

 

An alternative is for them to spend ten days in Spain or France before coming back and that allows them to quarantine at home rather than in the compulsory UK hotel.

 

Even so they have to get a negative Covid test result before they return to England and also pay £210 per person for Covid  test kits to be self administered twice at home during the quarantine period  - payment in advance for those is compulsory before they are allowed to cross the Channel. 

 

Scotland and Wales have separate rules of course.

 

Expensive home coming .

I believe the borders between Portugal and Spain will remain closed until the 1st March.

Since Jan 1st,  if Boris makes a sincere decision today, by next week there could be a U turn, ask his wife.
