How do I know if I need to quarantine upon arrival to Newcastle?

Guidance for students who may need to self-isolate on arrival in Newcastle.

Before Monday 17th May 2021 

Currently, all international travellers must quarantine on arrival in the UK. 

If you have travelled through or from a country on the UK’s red list, you will be taken to a designated quarantine hotel. If you have not travelled from or through a country on the UK’s red list, you must travel straight to your accommodation and complete your quarantine period there. 

Before you travel, you will need to register for a Travel Test Package, complete a Passenger Locator Form, and receive a negative result from a Covid test no more than 3 days before you travel. 

If you need to quarantine on your arrival in the UK and are staying in University-managed accommodation, you must email residences.admin@newcastle.ac.uk in advance of your arrival. When you arrive, you must then complete our Covid-19 Reporting Form. Please be sure to include the dates of your quarantine period.
