I need to quarantine/self-isolate, what should I do when I arrive in the UK?

Steps to follow when you arrive in the UK.

When you arrive in the UK, you will need to quarantine for 10 days - at present, all international travellers are required to do so.

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.

For more information on travelling to the UK, check out our handy step-by-step guide.

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.  


Report : tell us that you are self-isolating through the Covid-19 reporting form, so that we can support you.
