- need to provide your journey and contact details when you travel to the UK
- not be permitted to stay at UKSA and must find alternative accommodation for your first 14 days in the country.
- not be allowed to leave the place you’re staying for the first 14 days you’re in the UK except in very limited situations (known as ‘self-isolating’)
You can only leave if:
- you need urgent medical treatment
- you need support from social services
- you need food and medicine and cannot get them delivered or get a friend or family member to bring them
- you’re going to the funeral of a close relative, or for other compassionate reasons
- there’s an emergency, for example there’s a fire at the place you’re staying
You cannot have visitors, including friends and family, unless they are providing essential care.
If you’re at home or staying with friends or family, avoid contact with the people you’re staying with and minimise the time you spend in shared areas.
If you’re staying in a hotel or guest house, you cannot use shared areas such as bars, restaurants, health clubs and sports facilities. Stay 2 metres away from all other guests and staff.
If you will not be able to safely self-isolate at the place you’re planning to stay, tell Border Force officers when you arrive in the UK. They’ll give you a choice of accommodation to stay at.
After 14 days
If you do not have any coronavirus symptoms after 14 days, you can stop self-isolating. You will then need to follow the same rules as people who live in the UK and UKSA policies for Social Distancing.
