Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben. It’s my pleasure to assist you today. I may also ask for some preliminary information to help me determine the legal position.
What do you specifically want to know about this? Please note this is not always an instant service and I may not be able to reply immediately. However, rest assured that I am dealing with your question and will get back to you as soon as I can. Thanks
Many thanks for your patience, I am pleased to be able to continue assisting with your query now. First of all, I am sorry to hear about this situation and any associated issues.
I appreciate that you were flying directly from a green list country, but were you in a red list country in the 10 days before your arrival in the UK?
The problem you may find is that even though you flew from a green list country to the UK, you are required to quarantine if you have been in a red list country in the 10 days before your arrival to the UK. Therefore, if you were in the Philippines at any point in the 10 days before you arrived in the UK, it is the same as if you had flown directly from a red list country and those rules would apply to you.
Also, it makes no difference if the rules change halfway through and the red list country had become a green one – you are required to follow the rules which applied at the time of your arrival, so if that means you were required to quarantine for a specified period of time, you would have had to finish that period of quarantine, ignoring any change of rules that happen in the meantime – this has always been the case with travel list changes.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
I trust that everything has now been dealt with to your satisfaction and your original question has been resolved. If you have any further queries about it, please do not hesitate to get back to me on here. In the meantime, I wish you all the best.
