With the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak around, it is difficult to understand and decide what to carry with you and what not while traveling especially for studying abroad, because it is not just a flight that you are preparing yourself for but a new phase of life and before you make your packing decisions it is very important to know, "what exactly can you carry with you while traveling abroad?"
Below are the answers you can refer to while packing your things:
Protection Masks, shields, sanitizers, and sprays.
Healthcare kit (prescribed medicines.)
Things you can bring to the UK:
In the UK, you can bring your dog, cat, or ferret without quarantine as long as they meet the rules of the Pet Travel Scheme (PETS)
You can also carry fruit and vegetables (except potatoes) into the UK with you as long as they are in your personal baggage and for you and your family/friends.
All of the fruits and vegetables must be accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate unless they are one of the following tropical fruits namely: pineapple, coconut, durian, banana or plantain, and dates.
You also need to send the certificate to the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) within 72 hours of your arrival in the UK.
