UK Short Travel

Please remember, whether on business or on a holiday the short-term traveller (up to 6 months stay), most visitors will be required to obtain a visa before travelling to the UK. Only one visa is necessary to visit all the countries of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (the UK consists of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland).

London is the usual entry point for travellers to the UK and is full of some of the UK’s most popular tourist attractions. Full of history, pubs and green parks,

Many travellers use the UK as a jumping-off point to the rest of Europe, or perhaps finish up their cross-Europe jaunt here.

Travel insurance, including maximum health care coverage, is highly recommended. Although by world standards the UK is a relatively safe country with some first-class medical services on offer, low-cost health care through the National Health Service (NHS) is only offered to UK citizens, residents and those few travellers who belong to countries with reciprocal health agreements with the UK.

The following persons have reciprocal health agreements with the UK: nationals of Bulgaria, the Czech and Slovak Republics, Hungary, New Zealand and Russia; residents, irrespective of nationality, of Australia, Barbados, Iceland, Poland, Romania, Sweden and Turkey.

The following persons should also check to see whether their country has a special health agreement with the UK: (1) Residents, irrespective of nationality, of Anguilla, British Virgin Islands, Channel Islands, Falkland Islands, Isle of Man, Montserrat, St. Helena and the Caicos Islands; AND (2) Nationals of Gibraltar, Malta, the former Soviet Union states (except Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia) and Yugoslavia (including the four successor states of Bosnia, Croatia, Slovenia and Macedonia).

There should be no problem withdrawing money from ATM’s around the UK – most accept Visa, Diners, American Express and so on.

Visitors to the UK can claim back the Value Added Tax (VAT) on all purchases made during their trip to the UK. The VAT is a 17.5% tax charged on most goods bought in shops. Visitors can save a lot through the ‘Retail Export Scheme’ operating in particular tax-free shops – which are all over the United Kingdom.
