Health Advice for Migrant Workers
Health information for migrant workers has been provided on the GOV.UK website.
The main messages are:
There can be no charge made to an overseas visitor for the diagnosis or treatment of coronavirus (COVID-19).
All overseas visitors, including anyone living in the UK without permission, should be aware that:
- No charges apply to testing for COVID-19, even if the result is negative, or to any treatment provided for COVID-19 if the result is positive or up to the point that it is negatively diagnosed. The same is true of most other infectious diseases.
- NHS trusts have been advised that no immigration checks are required for overseas visitors that are known to be only undergoing testing or treatment for COVID-19.
Find health information and advice about COVID-19 on the NHS website.
