Worried about getting home this winter? We’ve got you covered.
International travel can come with plenty of annoying admin at the best of times, so we know that with covid-19 to think about too, travelling home this winter break (and back to Leeds afterwards) might be causing you to feel stressed and worried.
From accessing testing to having the right documents, there’s a lot to consider – that’s why we’ve compiled a number of helpful links to enable you to feel more calm and confident as you plan your trip home.
Feeling stressed is totally understandable, but we wanted to reassure you that there’s plenty of support available to ensure things go smoothly. Have a look below for some helpful resources.
The Government website’s Foreign Travel Advice page should be your first port of call for checking the latest information on coronavirus, entry requirements and more across the globe.
The situation is changing all the time, so we recommend that you regularly check this page, along with the government website of your home country. Watching or reading the news on a regular basis is also advised to stay up-to-date with the latest guidance.
The University’s International Student Office regularly updates this page on guidance for travelling to the UK, including helpful information about choosing a 2 Day Test which can be delivered to your student accommodation or taken at a walk-in service at the airport or elsewhere.
The UK Council for International Student Affairs has also published some helpful Frequently Asked Questions which may come in useful – including a link to the MoneySavingExpert guide to coronavirus travel rights, including proving vaccination status and getting flight refunds if required.
