For new students coming to RCS from outside the Common Travel Area (UK and Islands + the Republic of Ireland), the requirement to enter managed isolation (quarantine in a hotel) or self-isolate at home (or wherever you are planning to stay) in Scotland, depends on whether you are:
- getting a direct flight to a Scottish airport from abroad
- travelling to England, before travelling on to Scotland
- travelling to either Wales, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, Channel Islands or the Isle of Man, before travelling on to Scotland
Please note the pre-flight testing requirements on the above links and the list of acute risk countries. If you have travelled through an acute risk country within the 10 day period before travelling to the UK this may affect your ability enter. UKCISA explain the details of this further.
The Scottish goverment has published a comprehensive guide to International Travel and Managed Isolation
