Providing your journey and contact details before you travel to the UK

Before you travel to the UK, you will need to provide details of your journey.

This will include your contact details and the address where you are staying.

You will be able to complete the contact detail declaration 48 hours before you arrive in the UK. You must present these details on your arrival into the UK. You can complete the form on gov.uk. This is a free service.

When you arrive in the UK, you may need to self-isolate unless you are travelling from an exempt country.

Current guidance states that you should self-isolate in one place for the full 14 days, where you can have food and other necessities delivered, and stay away from others. You must self-isolate at the address you provide on the contact detail declaration form. This can include:

  • your student accommodation
  • staying with friends or family
  • a hotel or other temporary accommodation.
