Preparing for your arrival to the UK 
COVID restrictions have recently eased in the UK and the government has made it clear that international students can travel to the UK to study their courses in person, now that campuses have ‘opened up’.

However, there are still rules and restrictions on people travelling to the UK from overseas; the rules will vary depending on where you are travelling and transiting from, but most travellers to the UK will need to self-isolate upon arrival. Full details about the current rules for entering the UK can be found here.

Before you travel:

  • Obtain your student visa. For any questions regarding your visa please email Tier4Questions@intoglobal.com.
  • Before you book your flight, check with the carrier if it is running. We advise that you also check that you can make a change to the ticket once booked/issued should this be required.  
  • You must also inform the Centre of your intended arrival. Once your arrival arrangements have been acknowledged with the Centre, you will need to provide your name, student number, flight details and attach your flight booking confirmation.  
  • Ahead of travel you must provide proof of a negative coronavirus (COVID-19) test, taken up to 72 hours before your departure, to travel to the UK. This applies to all international arrivals, even if you are a UK citizen and/or have had a COVID-19 vaccination. All arrivals will also be required to complete the Passenger Locator Form, 48 hours before arrival into the UK.
  • Students arriving to the UK are required to book and pay for a travel testing package ahead of travel.
  • All travellers arriving into the UK (England and Northern Ireland) will be required to quarantine for 10 days, taking a COVID test on day 2 and day 8 of isolation.
  • If you have a direct flight into Scotland, you will need to book and pay for a government-approved facility. Currently there are no direct international arrivals into Wales. You must follow the relevant guidance for your entry point into the UK.
  • There may be additional restrictions or limitations of travel from your country, this will also include any transit countries when travelling to the UK. The travel restrictions list for England (Red List) and Scotland (Acute Risk) should be checked ahead of travel.  


Please note that the advice on travelling to the UK may vary between the four nations - England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. For the latest information from each nation please visit:
