Travel restrictions have become commonplace over the past year, but England is kicking things up a notch. Announced on Monday, a new legislation (to be voted on Thursday by parliament) could impose a fine of $6,900 (£5,000) on anyone leaving England without a reasonable excuse.
Nonessential travel is currently banned in England under the stay-at-home order. Anyone leaving the country needs to fill out a travel declaration form declaring the nature of their trip. Upon their return home, UK residents are grilled by border patrol about the reason for their trip.
