Gradually, quarantine restrictions are being changed in Ukraine and elsewhere in the world. But, unfortunately, the coronavirus is still with us and the current situation requires adjustments to the process of obtaining visas and passing borders. These changes may be temporary or may continue until a vaccine is invented.
From June 1, 2020, the UK Visa Centre in Kiev and the UK Visa Immigration Service are gradually resuming their work. You may now submit your application and documents and request a date for giving your biometric data.
If you submitted your documents prior to the quarantine and you have not yet received a decision, expect a response to the email you provided in the application from the UK Visa Immigration Service or from the UK Visa Centre.
To enter the Visa Centre of Great Britain you must wear a mask and observe a distance of 2 meters from the nearest person.
Starting from June 8, 2020 new rules of entry to the UK will be introduced due to coronavirus. These rules apply to those who live permanently in the UK and for temporary visitors, i.e. for people who will enter the country for tourism, business, study, or a guest visit. The rules are being introduced to reduce the rate of transmission and to prevent a second wave of disease in the UK.
Here are the new rules:
Upon arrival in the UK, you must go to a place of self-isolation. You can be met by friends or relatives at the airport or at the station and taken to your place of residence. You can use public transport if you have no other choice, but you must wear a mask and maintain social distancing.
You can leave the place of 14 days of self-isolation only in the following extreme cases:
During self-isolation, you cannot visit anyone except in an emergency.
If you live with relatives or friends, observe self-isolation in a separate room and minimize contact with the residents of the apartment.
If you stay in a hotel, for the first 14 days you do not have the right to use restaurants, bars, health services, or sports club.
If you do not find a place to self-isolate, inform the border guards on arrival and they will provide you with accommodation options.
After 14 days, if there are no symptoms of coronavirus, you can stop self-isolation, but you must follow the rules to keep your distance, and you will need to wear your mask all the time.
There are also categories of people who will not need to follow these rules:
We have chosen the most popular categories, but this the list is not complete. So, if you have questions, please visit the public sector information website of the United Kingdom.
