Travelling from Pakistan to the UK

The UK has relaxed all travel relaxations as a big step back to normalcy. All travellers bound for the UK will be able to do away with the pre and post-arrival COVID testing, quarantine and face mask regulation as travel restrictions are being eased.

Can I travel from Pakistan to the UK?

Yes, you can. There are currently no red list restrictions in place for travel to England. Any Pakistani traveller with a UK tourist visa or other kinds of travel purposes can visit the UK.

Required documents

You do not need to complete a UK passenger locator form before you travel. At the airport, you’ll need to show your identity document, such as your passport, visa or national identity card. You must:

  • have your identity document ready – remove it from a holder or wallet if you use one
  • remove your face covering or sunglasses, if you’re wearing them
  • move through passport control together if you’re in a family

Visa requirement

Since Pakistan does not fall under countries eligible for visa-free services upon arrival in the UK, travellers from Pakistan to the UK must have a valid visa document for entry to the country. The type of visa you need will vary according to the purpose of your entry.
