Travelling from a country on the red list

Managed quarantine hotel accommodation is required for students who travel from, or through, a country on the government red list (at the time of travel).

Before you travel to England you must:

  • take a COVID-19 test – you must take the test in the two days before you travel to England
  • book a quarantine hotel package, including two COVID-19 tests
  • complete a passenger locator form

When you arrive in England, you must quarantine in a managed hotel and take two COVID-19 tests.

You must do this even if you are fully vaccinated.


Travelling from a country not on the red list

If you’re fully vaccinated, you must take a COVID-19 PCR test on or before day 2 after you arrive in England. If the test result is negative, you can end your quarantine immediately. If your test result is positive, you must self-isolate for 10 full days.

If you are not fully vaccinated, you must quarantine for 10 full days.
