As you might be aware of, the COVID cases are continuously growing worldwide, irrespective of any country. The situation has become even worse due to the new variant of the virus called omicron. However, with such a situation around, the UK government has not put up any restrictions in granting the number of VISAs, instead, they have been in the favor of increasing it.

Plan 'A' and Plan 'B'

As of now, the UK government is working on Plan ‘B’ after they had a cabinet meeting. So, what are the things included in Plan B? Firstly, the quarantine period in UK will not be applicable for people coming from any other country. Anyone can directly visit UK and they won’t have to be under the quarantine period there.

Also, one has to carry the negative RTPCR reports till 7th January. This, however, is subjected to change in the coming times, which might mean that an individual might not have to carry a Covid Test report at all.
