VISITING IFF

When collecting your IFF pass, all delegates will be asked for proof of either:

1. A recognised Covid-passport showing proof of both vaccinations at least 14 days prior, or recovery from Covid. Passports include the NHS Covid Pass, or EU Digital Covid Certificate, or
2. Proof of a negative lateral flow test or PCR test taken within 48 hours of arriving at IFF.

Hand sanitiser will be available in all venues, and all IFF venues have enhanced procedures in place for cleaning all public areas, as well as backstage to front of house throughout each day. Toilets are regularly cleaned and sanitised.

In line with current Government guidance, none of the IFF venues will require delegates to wear a mask or socially distance once inside.

If you, or someone you live with displays symptoms associated with COVID-19, then please do not attend IFF.

VISITING ENGLAND

All overseas travellers to the UK are subject to additional entry requirements due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The rules for entry will depend on the current classification of the country you are arriving from, which are designated as either red, orange or green.

An up to date list of requirements can be found on the Gov.uk website here.

GREEN LIST COUNTRIES

Travellers from Green list countries (including Germany, Denmark, Austria, Canada and Switzerland) are NOT required to quarantine or self isolate in the UK, regardless of whether they have been double vaccinated or not.

If you have visited a country on the Red or Amber lists in the 10 days before entering the UK, you must follow the rules for those countries.

Before you travel to England you must:

1. Take a COVID-19 test – you must take an antigene or PCR test in the 3 days before you travel to England
2. Book and pay for a day 2 COVID-19 test – to be taken after arrival in England
3. Complete a passenger locator form

If you are traveling to IFF from abroad and need to take a PCR test on Day 2, here are several options including:

1. It is possible to take your Day 2 test on arrival at the airport.
2. Many testing companies will post a test to your hotel in advance of you arriving (we recommend Randox, which has a Dropbox for completed tests a few minutes’ walk from Camden – tests are £43 using the discount code BritishAirways).
3. We have negotiated a special £70 rate for IFF delegates with JP Pharmacy in Camden (139 Camden High St, NW1 7JR). To pre-book, download the form here and email it to jppharmacy@nhs.net at least 72 hours before leaving. On arrival in Camden, collect the test kit, then drop it off once completed. Results will be emailed to you within 24 hours. For bulk orders, test kits can be delivered and picked up locally.

AMBER LIST COUNTRIES

Travellers from Amber list countries (including Belgium, France, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands & Poland) who have been double vaccinated are NOT required to quarantine or self isolate in the UK.

If you have visited a country on the Red list in the 10 days before entering the UK, you must follow the rules for those countries.

Before you travel to England you must:

1. Take a COVID-19 test – you must take an antigene or PCR test in the 3 days before you travel to England
2. Book and pay for a day 2 COVID-19 test – to be taken after arrival in England
3. Complete a passenger locator form

RED LIST COUNTRIES

Because of the requirement for visitors from red list countries to self isolate for 10 days on arrival, we do not recommend delegates from those countries attend IFF this year.
