Status, 1st January 2022
Citizens of the EU, EEA and Switzerland can still enter the UK without a visa for holidays or short trips. In most cases, a stay of up to six months is possible. You can find out more here before you travel. Please check on www.gov.uk if you need a UK visa.
Students who are not EEA nationals but who are resident in an EEA country or Switzerland could enter the UK under the List-of-Travellers scheme until 1 October 2021. There is no decision at the moment on extending this procedure.
If you become ill during a temporary stay in England or have a medical emergency, you will still have access to medical care with a valid EHIC card. However, the EHIC is not an alternative to travel insurance. One should additionally purchase travel or medical insurance that covers the period of travel. The UK government website has more information on healthcare and documents to bring as a visitor. Please note that the way travellers access health care in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland may be different than in England.
