UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced in a news conference Friday, that the UK will close all travel corridors from 04:00 GMT Monday 18th January 2021.

Passengers wishing to enter the UK will have to possess a negative coronavirus test result. The emergency measures will be in place for at least one month, according to the Department for Transport.

"This means that if you come to this country, you must have proof of a negative Covid test that you've taken in the 72 hours before leaving. And you must have filled in your passenger locator form, and your airline will ask for proof of both before you take off," Johnson said.

"You may also be checked when you land and face substantial fines for refusing to comply, and upon arrival, you must then quarantine for 10 days, not leaving your home for any reason at all. Or take another test on day five and wait for proof of another negative result. And we will be stepping up our enforcement, both at the border and in the country," Johnson added.

The measures apply to all travelers, including British and Irish nationals. Increased enforcement will support the new rules, including more spot checks on passengers that have entered the country, the Department for Transport said in a news release.

Mr Johnson, also confirmed that the rules would apply across the UK after talks with the devolved administrations.
