The UK Government has announced that India is to be removed from England's red travel list, meaning travellers will no longer be required to spend 11 nights at a coronavirus quarantine hotel.
As part of a host of changes to the traffic light system for international travel, Bahrain, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates are also being moved out of the high-risk category and onto the amber list. Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Slovakia, Latvia, Romania and Norway are among seven countries being added to the quarantine-free green list.
The new travel rules will come into effect at 4am on Sunday 8th August. Transport Secretary Grant Shapps added that the Government is “committed to opening up international travel safely, taking advantage of the gains we’ve made through our successful vaccination programme”.
All international students will be eligible for the vaccine when they arrive in the UK but for their own safety, and for those around them, SI-UK recommends that all students aim to get vaccinated before leaving their home country.

My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
