Default LPR Visit to the UK

Not sure if this should be here or in the immigration forum.

Hi,

I may have to make a visit to the UK this week, due to a family medical emergency. This trip is probably unavoidable.

As far as I can see, I'll have no problems getting back into the US, my arrival airport will be Seattle. I'll have to self quarantine for 14 days on return, but as long as I get back in that's OK.

Can anyone put my mind at rest that I have this correct?

Thanks

As of right now you can get back in. Now if you will be able to find a flight, it will still be operating when you need to get back, or the rules haven't been changed is anybodies guess. As long as you travel with the assumption you may well be stuck in the UK for an unknown period of time, and may have to self quarantine on arrival in the UK, you shouldn't get any nasty surprises.

Thanks all.

Yeah, there are flights (I thought they were supposed to be cheap!), but I am concerned that anything could change while I'm there. Tricky decision.

This is a very real possibility IMO - and we could be talking 12-18 months, or more.

Agreed x 2 .... Honestly I see this as a 21st century problem (60 years ago nobody would have expected you to "nip back", and you may not have not heard of medical crisis until days later in a letter, when it may already have been too late) and I don't think anyone would blame you for not traveling under the current circumstances, no matter how severe the "medical emergency".

If this happened to me, and there is a very real risk it will as my mother is well beyond the age where they would consider trying to save her with a ventilator, then I won't be traveling as there is no point in putting myself and my family at risk too. And if my sister (still in the UK) doesn't understand that, then that's her problem, not mine!

It's usually (has been for years) $1,400-$1,600 for CLT-LHR, and was about $1,700-$1,800 last Christmas.
