Exemption letters are available for Elite Sportspersons and Ancillary Sportspersons as defined by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS). In order to apply for an exemption letter you must hold a Motorsport UK International Competition Licence, work for a team with an International Entrants Licence or hold an International Officials Licence or an International Licence issued by a recognised FIA ASN that is not Motorsport UK.
Following guidance provided by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and in accordance with the Regulations, Media personnel from the UK looking to cover overseas events which take place in (or involve travelling through) a non-exempt country, are not permitted under the guidance and therefore will be required to self-isolate during the 10-day period after returning to the UK (except for personnel who are specifically contracted to a large motorsport team and who on their return will be required to carry out work from an office or broadcasting centre for the purpose of the event they have just returned from or to prepare for an event they will be travelling to on behalf of that team).
Letters provided are on the assumption you will be landing into an English port. If you intend to return to Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales you will be provided with a letter that reflects the legislation of the devolved nation and must continue to follow local government guidance.
Once an exemption letter has been issued, the administration fee cannot be refunded.
If you are part of a large motorsport team, it is advised that the Team Coordinator/Team Manager complete this form for all members of the team and to act as a central point of communication (and where applicable for payment). The application form must be completed for each member of the team that requires an exemption letter.
Only one parent or guardian is eligible to apply for an exemption letter where they are accompanying a child under the age of 18 years.
