On Friday 18 March, the UK’s remaining Covid travel rules ended.

There are now no Covid travel requirements for passengers arriving to the UK. It’s easy to travel from anywhere in the world to start an English language course.

Since 4am on Friday 18 March:

No Covid tests required on arrival

No quarantine required

No travel forms required

This applies to passengers arriving from all countries, regardless of vaccine status.

English language schools are open and welcoming students. Tourist attractions are open, and activity programmes and excursions are available too. So, if you’re planning a study trip in the UK this spring or summer, now is a great time to book.

You can check our Covid-19 information page for more information about what to expect in the UK.
