What will happen to me if I breach the quarantine requirements for students travelling to Newcastle from outside of the UK? 

Important information on quarantine/self-isolation requirements for students.

Compliance with self-isolation/quarantine requirements will be monitored by the Border Force.  

You may be refused permission to enter the UK (if you are not a British citizen), or fined if you do not to provide your contact details or do not self-isolate, unless you arrive in the UK from an exempt country.  

In England, if you do not self-isolate, you can be fined £1,000. If you do not provide an accurate contact detail declaration – or do not update your contact detail form in the limited circumstances where you need to move from the accommodation where you’re self-isolating to another place to continue self-isolating – you can be fined up to £3,200.
