The pandemic has been an obstacle for many study abroad aspirants looking to travel to the UK.
On the 23rd of April 2021, the UK announced that India was added to the red list as part of precautionary measures to avoid the new COVID-19 variant from entering the country. Alongside India, Nepal, Pakistan, South Africa and many more countries have also been added to the red list.
Given the current situation, the biggest question on students' minds has been, 'can students from the red listed countries travel to the UK?'.
As per the pre-set guidelines, people from the red-listed countries are not permitted to enter the UK, barring a few exceptions.
The UK government has introduced a system which rates countries as either red, amber of green for Covid-19.
This dictates the rules that people must follow when entering and leaving the UK.
Red list countries and territories have the strictest rules, with green list countries having the least restrictive rules. These rules have to be followed even if you have been vaccinated.
Though international students are allowed to travel to the UK from red listed countries, you need to take specific mandatory steps and follow the quarantine rules set for international students in the UK to enter the country in the foreseeable future until the UK government gives further updates.
