On 8th November, travel to the US resumed for the UK, Ireland and other countries affected by the COVID-19 Travel ban.

  • All international travellers will need to prove they are fully vaccinated before boarding a flight (for UK this will mean at least 2 weeks past your second vaccination).
  • They will also require a negative Covid-19 test within 24 hours of departure for the USA
  • Embassies in London, Belfast and Dublin are for visa processing, but there are significant delays and new processes.
  • Due to the increase in case numbers of Omnicron across Europe and the US, there are delays in sending out documents to students. This is as a result of significant staff issues with international courier firms as well as Royal Mail for domestic UK deliveries
