All passengers are now required to provide verifiable proof of a negative COVID-19 test upon arrival in the UK. This decision came after the UK government suspended all travel corridors on the 18th January 2021 – a decision which has caused upheaval at London Heathrow Airport. As a result, the UK is faced with a new threat, involving fake COVID-19 test certificates and vaccination records.
There has been an alarming rise in the amount of fake COVID-19 test certificates sold on the black market, after several instances of counterfeit negative test certificates in Brazil, France and the UK. Anyone who travels with a fake COVID-19 test result or vaccination certificate undermines any efforts put in place to limit the spread of the virus, along with the chances of air travel reopening again.
