🔘Experience of returning to the UK from a senior student: I need to do nucleic acid tests when I return to the UK! Although many students said that the airport staff did not check it after arriving in the UK, domestic airlines require that you have it, otherwise they will directly refund your ticket and prevent you from getting on the plane. After arriving in the UK, a staff member will take you to a hut for nucleic acid testing. You can refuse directly and go to customs.

After the resumption of direct flights, normal operations between China and the UK have almost resumed. Although the fare is a little more expensive than before, it does save a lot of trouble. Students should still pay attention to changes in immigration policies in a timely manner. Students who have plans for a round-trip itinerary between China and the UK in the near future can save it🌟 !
