English travellers face fines and losing flights without new permit

LONDON (BBC): Anyone travelling overseas from England from Monday will have to prove they are allowed to travel, or risk being turned away from the airport and fined.

They will need to complete a “Declaration to Travel” document from a government website.

The form sets out that their trip is permitted under current restrictions, such as for education or work.

Police officers will be conducting spot checks and may ask travellers to produce a completed form. It will be an offence to fail to produce a completed form and individuals could face a £200 fine, the Department for Transport warned. The form must be downloaded from the government’s website, signed before travel and carried or downloaded on to a mobile phone.
