Latest Immigration News

UK visa/immigration rules can change frequently. Please see below for information about some of the latest updates. 

Entering the UK under Covid-19 restrictions

During the Covid-19 pandemic, there were many additional requirements for entering the UK. Most of these rules have come to an end. However, please note that it was recently announced by the UK government in early January 2023 that people travelling from mainland China will now require a negative Covid test before being able to travel to and enter the UK. Full details of these requirements have not yet been published by the government but we will update our website as soon as these are released 

Please visit our website about arriving in the UK below for more details.


Information for European Union (EU) nationals entering the UK from 1 October 2021

Please note that from 1 October 2021, it will not be possible to enter the UK using an Identification (ID) Card issued by an EU country. You will need a valid passport (and the appropriate immigration permission) to enter the UK if necessary.  

Suspension of requirement to register with the Police

t has recently been announced on 4 August 2022 that the requirement for international students to register with the Police after entering the UK has now been abolished. If you received your Student visa recently, you will not be required to register with the Police even though this may have originally been printed on your visa. If you have already registered with the Police, no further action is required. This condition of your visa will not be amended but you do not need to keep your Police Registration Certificate.
