No, only a "very limited" group of people are exempt including freight drivers, seasonal vegetable and fruit pickers, medical specialists and others listed by the Home Office.

The rule, which will apply to airline passengers, but also people arriving by train, road, and ship, has been roundly criticized by the country's air transport lobby, with the Airlines UK saying that it will "effectively kill" worldwide travel to and from the country.

From June 8th, anybody entering the country will be expected to self-isolation for two weeks, or face the threat of a £1,000 fine. The devolved authorities in the other parts of the United Kingdom will set out their own enforcement approaches though the general rules will apply everywhere.

"Therefore, we are calling for a multi-layered approach of carefully targeted public health and screening measures, which will allow for a successful and safe restart of worldwide air travel for passengers and businesses".

Fresh questions will also be asked why the measure was not imposed early on in the pandemic.
