If you’re travelling to, or through, France and Denmark, you must have proof of an authorised negative COVID test, before arriving in Kent, or any UK port.
You must also have a Kent Access Permit (KAP) to travel through Kent and on to the EU.
You must take the COVID no more than 72 hours before you arrive at the border. Without proof of a negative test, you will not be able to cross, causing further delays.
If you are a UK resident going to Denmark, you will need to provide evidence of an authorised negative COVID test taken no more than 24 hours before entry. This is regardless of where the transport begins.
Please consider this when planning your journey and check the latest travel advice.
Free tests are available at 34 of the Information and Advice sites providing border readiness checks, but please check the latest opening hours and information. You can also get an authorised negative COVID test from a private testing facility. Check with your firm in case they have their own arrangements.
