UPDATED: 15 June 2022


All Covid-19 restrictions in England ended on 18 March 2022. All legal limits on social contact have been removed. There are currently no limits on social gatherings indoors or outdoors. Face coverings are no longer required. There are no requirements for testing or isolation.

On 26th April 2022, the University of Oxford issued the following statement (from https://www.ox.ac.uk/coronavirus/status):

“The University is currently at Level 0 of its Business Continuity Planning (BCP) framework. All COVID-19 restrictions have been removed from University premises (excluding hospital buildings where NHS guidance continues to apply).”

NB: “Stage 0” means the University has returned fully to pre-Covid arrangements, with all students being taught in person and all testing/mask/isolation requirements being lifted.


(Updated 15 June 2022)

There are no requirements for masks, pre-departure tests, passenger locator forms or quarantine for travellers arriving in England (this applies to all visitors irrespective of their vaccination status). Simply book your flight in the usual way and turn up at Heathrow/Gatwick to take a 1.5- to 2-hour coach journey to Oxford’s Gloucester Green Bus Station (see https://www.theairlineoxford.co.uk).

Please contact OSAP at [email protected] should you have any questions about current travel requirements, or if you need assistance in any way as you plan your journey to Oxford.

Travel to the USA from the UK: From 12th June 2022 US authorities no longer require incoming travellers from the United Kingdom to present evidence of a negative Covid-19 test. This marks a full return to pre-Covid travel rules.
