Travel Advice for the UK

Due to the UK's departure from the European Union, the documentation required to travel to London has now changed from what was required in recent years.

US Citizens

American citizens travelling to the UK for a vacation don't need to get a visa, but will need a valid passport. During your flight, you'll be asked to fill out a landing card where you’ll have to provide your name, date of birth, gender, nationality, occupation and the address where you will be staying in London which must be shown with your passport at the security control.

Australian Citizens

Australian citizens travelling to Great Britain as tourists for a period of up to six months do not require a visa. If you plan on spending over six months in the country, you will have to pay a £200 per annum Immigration Health Surcharge from the 6th of April 2016 onwards. To enter the country, you will need to show a valid passport. You will also have to fill out a landing card once on the plane providing your name, date of birth, gender, nationality, occupation and the address where you will be staying in London.

EU, EEA and Swiss Citizens

As citizens of the European Union and European Economic Area, you won't need a visa to enter the country. However, depending on your nationality or the duration or purpose of your trip, you may need a visa.
